appleton estate rumWe were lucky enough to receive a couple bottles of Appleton Estate Rum: Signature Blend and Reserve. We decided to taste a cocktail classic and a new creation using these top line spirits. The Reserve Rum is a blend of 20 different rums of varying ages, the youngest of which is aged eight years in used Jack Daniels whiskey barrels. Their Signature Blend is a variety of rums aged between five and ten years, blended together in oak vats and aged for several months.
