Rum - Aged
Appleton Estate Master Blender's Legacy Jamaica Rum
This spirit has yet to face the slings and arrows of the rating agencies.
Appleton Estates claims rum production back to 1749 with origins of the estate in 1655 during British and Spanish hostilities: Frances Dickinson is believed to have been granted the estate in service to the British crown. The rums are considered "estate" rums for the sugar (ultimately molasses) grown and produced on the same grounds as the distillery--think of it as craft distilling writ-large like a plantation. They believe the Nassau valley soil and aquifer water produces unique characters in the rum. They are currently invested in "Green Cane Harvesting" by 2010 and have a variety of sustainable measures in their production. J. Wray was acquired by Gruppo Campari in September of 2012.
Appleton Estate Master Blender's Legacy rum is a blend of rums aged between 12 and 30 years and is considered the ultra-premium offering from Appleton Estate. It's meant to "celebrate three generations" of blenders. On the palate, it is claimed to have "splendid display of controlled sweetness."
There is a complimentary write-up on the Master Blender's Legacy over at The Rum Examiner, where they describe it as having a "breathtaking nose" with a "complex and powerful" palate.
