Recommendable to most
Notes of ripe banana and some vanilla on the nose. Smells sweeter than it tastes on the palate (which I so not mean as criticism). Nice taste with some some tobacco-ish overtones, has some alcoholic burn stronger than, say, an El Dorado or a Diplo.
I bought a bottle of this for my birthday as i saw it in Tesco on sale for £30 so thought i would give it a shot without knowing much about it. I normally enjoy any rum anyway so didn't mind the risk of a blind buy. The flavour in the initial mouthful is fairly good but the finish when you swallow is quite incredible! I am not an expert in notes and flavours etc so i do not know what this is but damn, does it taste good! It is not that sweet and has a nice dry oaky taste and is practically a glass of heaven when a single ice cube is added. I have tried about 20 rums now and at the time of writing, this remains in my top 3 due to that fantastic finish. I definitely want to try some of that Joy anniversary blend!!
The first randezvous was quite unpromissing. It smelled like typical rum (overripe banana). A few sips later it revealed much more coplexity, fruitiness and some strange but pleasent, hogo like flavours. Classic, elegant, balanced. Dry but not too much. Highly recommended.
Classic Appleton taste without the harsh. No sweet added like the whole Appleton collection. Some complexity. Woody and rich. One of the best bang for the buck.
Purchased for $31.99 in PA. The nose is rather mild. Upon tasting, the flavor is rather faint. Thin body and finish for an ABV of 43%. I expected more from a well known brand. UPDATE: After having this for a while, I have updated my rating from 6 to 7. It does grow on you after a while.
