We just returned from CSS and are already planning next year's trip there! At the main beach bar one evening we had Appleton rum on ice. It was Couples top shelf rum. We thought it was XO grade but we can't find it where we live. Anyone know which grade it would be?
Oh my! In 40 days I also will enjoy my Appleton at CSS (yes, it does taste better there). However, it can be found in the states. Our local liquor stores keep Appleton Special and Appleton VX. I have also been able to get the 12 year blend, but it's harder to find. A restaurant that we frequent also now keeps some on hand. Appleton just has a distinct flavor that doesn't compare to any other rum!
