Appleton Estate Master Blender Joy Spence has the distinction of being the first woman to hold this position in the industry. The Jamaican is undertaking a nationwide ‘Joy of Rum’ tour, showcasing her unique rum blending and appreciation skills. Joy explains the techniques used to create aged rums and the deep history behind rum appreciation and use in Jamaica. I get the tough job tasting a few while Joy commentates with tasting notes.
