It doesn't seem as funky as my beloved Myers Dark, but still a solid, reliable, mixing Jamaican rum. I'm looking forward to trying an aged Appleton Estate.

Hard to classify this new incarnation ot the Signature Blend - it does not fulfill its expected role of a Jamaica mixer, as it has only a hint of the characteristic esthery overripe banana smell and taste. On the other hand, there is surprisingly some oak present in both smell and taste instead (unusual for an equivalent of a gold mixer), then a hint of banana, spicy aftertaste with a bit of a sour twist and bit of an alcohol kick, all quite tame and mellow, especially when compared to Hampden Gold. Taking into account the price is some 20% higher than e.g. Captain Morgan - there is quite some value you get for you money. Of course no trace of sugar here.

On it's own, it really isn't great.

With a mixer, or as part of a blend in a cocktail, it's serviceable.

There are better rums in the price bracket.

This rum is meant for mixing and not to be sipped. Good for a rum and cola.

It was a little hard to drink this on the rocks. I’m sure it’s a good mixer but a solid 4 finger pour straight or on the rocks is not the way to drink this rum. Hints of the classic Appleton characteristics but I’ll stick with their better blends.

Tento mladší bráška starší verze Apleton Estate Signature Blend je hodně podobný svému předchůdci. Rozdíl je opravdu minimální a hodně těžko rozeznatelný. Stará verze je pro mne i přes takto nepatrný rozdíl o něco chutnější. Pro mne není tento rum ničím výjimečný, ale rád jej koupím znovu na pomalé domácí večerní popíjení ve všední den. Chuť shnilé trávy v tomto rumu není pro můj jazyk moc vhodná, ale také neurazí a je dobré občas mít změnu.

I'll bump this one up on my personal list after broadening my Jamaican horizons. While not as robust as the 8 year, the funk and spicy burn is still there, and that's something that I've come to like.

This is probably going to be my go-to rack-grade rum when I want something that I won't feel heretical for mixing in cola or gingerale

Basic mixing rum. Not a whole lot to say other that this is a good one to keep on hand for mixing. Good for those that just want a drink and a visit. Mix well and be happy.
