Luca Gargano had announced their existence and their arrival several months ago, here they are very soon available. These three very old rums (vintages 1994, 1995 and 1999) are 100% pot still, at a high degree – nothing below 60% – and of course fully tropical aging. So that makes us sacred pieces on paper, especially since Appleton had never before offered this kind of rum, their know-how and their specialty being column blends and pot stills, balanced and rather easy. access. So this is really a first that is offered to us here, a first that makes our mouths water.In order to ensure the promotion and the exposure to this release, Velier put the small dishes in the big ones by sending boxes containing these three rums in 20cl format to a good number of journalists and amateurs of all kinds, the whole together with ‘a series of masterclasses in the presence of Joy Spence, Appleton’s master blender and Luca Gargano, Velier’s boss. I was lucky enough to receive this set and to be invited to one of these masterclasses. Here is what there is to remember.
