As soon as I tasted it, I told the Mrs.... Appleton Estates. I paid $14.99 and for that price, I'd say it's a good value. Cool label. Sipped it over ice, as is my usual custom. Washed it down with a Red Stripe. I think it would be a good mix with some Creole and some roots reggae.

Beautiful bottle design. I experienced this rum as very mild and sweet with nozing flavors of chocolate, coffee and cane. These notes are also present at the palate and short to midsize finish. This rum is a good bargain (at its price) in comparison to many other medium-rated rums.

Not the worst rum I’ve ever tried by any means. Definitely needs to be mixed though. I found it quite harsh on the palate when I sipped it but with some Pepsi it can make for a nice drink

Smoke and Vanilla on the nose. Very harsh first taste. Flirts with chocolate, vanilla and mint beneath a VERY wooden tongue. Definitely interesting though. Would recommend this with cola. The sugar compliments the woodiness and allows the deeper flavours to come through stronger.

It's a very tasty rum. It's quite sweet, especially on the nose. Since it's sweet and not very funky, this rum might be a little short on flavor in a recipe calling specifically for a Jamaican rum. However, it's nice stuff, and if you blend it with a quarter ounce to a half ounce of funky Jamaican rum, like Hamilton or Smith and Cross, in a cocktail, that will work out very well.

It is a bit strong but very good. Wasn't expecting this to have the richness and body. Love it.

Blackwell Gold Special Reserve is my favorite rum for sipping neat while pairing with a good Nicaraguan maduro cigar and sitting by my fire pit. I use the more genaric dark rums for my "dark and stormy's". Every time I'm in Jamaica I pick up a few bottles to bring home to restock the cabinet.

I'm fairly new to this, so I don't have much experience. But I must say this rum is absolutely superb (if you like darker rums). No matter if you like to drink your rum neat or in a cocktail, this rum has got you covered.

It reminded me of a sweeter, less leathery and smokey Havana Club 7. Has a nice laid back sweetness to it - raisin-like with brown sugar and molasses - and a warmth without much alcohol kick (thought here is more on the nose). I am not particularly into Jamaican rums, preferring others, but this is pleasant. It costs around about £20 which is about the right price for it.

V chuti je strašně citit alkohol a rozhodně bych ho nedoporučoval na pomalé popijeni.
