Default Bristol Spirits Caribbian Collection?

Bristol Spirits Caribbian Collection and Appleton Estate VX is now going to be available in my whereabouts. Problem is I don't know much about the first one and I also wonder about the Appleton - is it a sipper or primarely for mixing? I loved the Extra but will I be disappointed with the VX?

The Bristol Spirits Caribbian Collection is a blend of young rums, and it's the perfect "gate" to enter in the Demerara's world. Its simplicity is also perfect for cocktail.
The Appleton Estate VX is a rum born to be mixed with fruit juice, especially for the preparation of colade.

I agree with the VX as a mixing rum, but its a very nice mixing rum.

Many thanks Roberto & Tiare! Looks like I will go for the Caribbian Collection then? I'm not into mixing - or rahter, I'm not any good at it....
I've only had the El Dorado 15 before and I guess it's completely different to the one from Bristol Spirits? Looking forward to it!
