Formally know as 'Appleton Estate Extra 12 Year Old' (renamed 2015), this medium-bodied rum is a blend of pot and column still rums aged between 12 and 18 years in ex-bourbon barrels with added toasted oak chips. Estate Extra was the personal creation of Wray & Nephew’s Chief Blender, Joy Spence.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 29/11/2015

Appearance

Clear, deep coppery amber.

Aroma

Pungent dried apricot, honey and freshly sawn oak with vanilla and linseed oil.

Taste

Medium-bodied. A bed of dry spicy oak layered with gingerbread, honey, orange peel, almond, cinnamon, nutmeg, soy sauce and mocha coffee.

Aftertaste

Dry and oaky with passion fruit, mocha coffee, orange zest and bitter tannins.

Overall

Fabulous nose but perhaps a tad too much dry oak tannins on the palate and finish.
