Appleton Estate 8 Year Rum blends together 20 different rums to create a dark sugar concoction which is intensely enjoyable. The sugary nature of this Appleton offering is tempered by warm honey and despite the seeming sweetness it is sharp on the tongue with a satisfying hit of citrus peel and caramelised apple. Caramel and hazelnut flavours come through on tasting and this one rum that should be enjoyed neat.
Four Roses Yellow Label is one of the most popular offerings from the Four Roses collection and is considered a bar essential for many cocktail maestros. Sophisticated and smooth hints of pear and apple come through alongside floral aromas and a flavour which is deep in honey and spice. Its soft finish is simply begging to be mixed in with other flavours to create cocktails of real class and refinement.
Another market leading cognac, Hennessy’s rich and full-bodied flavours strike a special balance which makes it so popular. Bright and fruity from first opening, Hennessy also has undertones of oak and once in the mouth flavours of nutty grilled almonds and a hint of fresh grapes are released. Tones of red berries and vanilla follow and ageing of a minimum of 2 years helps bolster the intense smoothness of the drink.
