Dried pink grapefruit and earl grey tea followed by a strong liquorice undercurrent that leads into a sort of crushed Parma Violet sweets affair. Kick is woody and spicy and leads into juniper, bergamot and faint ginseng notes. All in all bloody good.
15 individually distilled pot and column rums come together to give us Appleton Signature . Medium-sweet in flavour with a smoothness on the palate, Appleton VS is perfect on the rocks, is complemented by ginger beer and hasa true taste of the Caribbean. Brown sugar, light spices and dried currants and raisins are prominent on the palate and the flavour remains sweet and mellow from beginning to end.
Manhattan standard issue! Big bitter sweet stewed stone fruit notes with zesty orange and Manuka Honey flavours. This flows into a big bittersweet orange and squished hot plum and sloeberrry finish.
