Review Revisitation: Appleton Master Blender’s Legacy Rum
Posted by Arctic Wolf on March 14, 2010
My journey up the ladder of Appleton Estate Rums is almost complete. This week’s review is another re-visitation to an older review. I opened a new bottle of Appleton Estate Master Blender’s Legacy, and started fresh as if I had never tasted the rum before.
The Appleton Estate Master Blender’s Legacy was produced to recognize three generations of Appleton Estate Master Blenders, Joy Spence, the current Master Blender, Owen Tulloch, the previous Master Blender, and, David Morrison the current protégé of Joy Spence. All three blenders have set their mark on this luxurious rum.
The rum itself is a blend of rums which range in age from 18 years to 30 years.
Here is an excerpt from my review:
“…The rum continues to surprise me in this second review. The texture is cleaner than I remember, almost like a good whisky. Tart spices of orange peel, lemon are laid behind a backdrop of clean pure oak. Sweeter flavours of baked fruit (apples and pears), brown sugar and honey lie under these spices….”
Of course the entire review may be read here:
I have left the original review at the bottom of the page in case it interests you in seeing how my perceptions have changed!
