Dan, Glad you're enjoying the Appleton 21. I am enjoying your custom-made rums just fine as well.

This one has me scratching my head as to how they did it. Because of the multiple distillations and filtrations I had expected a tasteless vodka. But this has a fine nose and real flavour, up there in quality. I plan to do another comparative tasting of white rums soon and will include this one.

No recommended for cocktails??? Only because it's expensive - but the better the ingredients, the better the cocktail. It makes a bl**dy good Mai Tai in my experience and I shall verify that by having a Master Blenders MT at the end of the day

Now Thats a rum I'd like to see. An old One barrel HMMM. Hopefully the guys in Belize are reading the boards and release some of that old stock they've got hiding.
