So once again I am fully content on doing nearly nothing with my day except lounging around and watching the television. I decided to grab my bottle of Appleton Estate VX and mix up a few limes and mint and just be a layabout for a while.
Appleton's premium is some pretty good stuff. Crisp and dry that is a good definition of what a dark, non-spiced rum should be. Very sweet and spicy on the nose and light bodied, smooth with good notes of oak and toasted spice. But not spiced. Tis a curious bastard it is.
But muddled with some mint and lime it can be such a relaxing beverage for a miserably hot Louisiana night.
Hope you guys enjoy something nice and sweet and cold today.
