I drink the more sweeter rums. Came from Jamaica and had high hopes. The taste was awful. Not my kind.

Good one, best value.
Říkám in its origin. I've just taste first sip and pretty like it.

First, the good news, this is a great all around mixing rum with few competitors at its price point. No, it is definitely not a "sipper", but the price point should be a pretty decent clue. This is a basic, no frills Jamaican rum. It has minimal complexity but is not entirely just one note either. The nose is pretty simple, caramel, a touch of vanilla and orange. The flavor is similar but adds some touches of warmth, dried fruits and the classic Jamaican "funk". The really great thing is the price, for the price it makes a great foundation for a Grog, a Daquiri a Mai Tai or any other number of great cocktails.

My only real complaint against this rum is that when I started drinking rum, and started drinking Appleton's products specifically, their basic rum was the VX, which, for anybody who tasted it 10-15 years ago knows, was a pretty big step up from this offering. To add to the situation, when they first made the switch from VX to this Signature blend it seemed to be essentially the same product, for quite a while actually. Then, one day they changed the flavor, and definitely for the worse. It is still a good rum, and a good value, but in the VX iteration it was a spectacular product for the money. I still recommend this product, but us old timers really miss the previous version.

Looks good, smells good but rather harsh at 80 proof. Good bar rum, but i hesitate to drink it neat or on the rocks. Reasonably good as a mixer with cola.

Tento rum jsem uviděl v akci jednoho supermarketu za přijatelný peníz v době, kdy rumoví nadšenci z České republiky, sdružující se v české facebookové skupině o rumech, vykoupili většinu zásob této značky v České republice, pod vlivem dobrého marketingového triku jednoho obchodu s rumy, u příležitosti uvedení Apleton Estate Rare Cask 12 y.o. na český trh. Měl jsem obavy, ale chuť mne mile překvapila. Vůně je podle mých čichových buněk poněkud zvláštní a nevím jak ji popsat, je tam něco co mi dosti vadí. Jakoby tam byla tráva co kvasí. V chuti je to o hodně lepší. Jemná nasládlost, která pomalinku odeznívá bez nějakého ocasu. Parádní rum pro každodenní popíjení s pomalým převalováním doušků na jazyku, které odhalí lepší stránky tohoto rumu.

Pleasantly inoffensive but lacking distinction as a sipper & not enough punch as a mixer.

Appleton Signature was my first look into Jamaican rum and I honestly wasn't the biggest fan. For the price I was even further dissatisfied. It's very dry and bitter more along the lines of a high rye whiskey. I didn't get much notes of banana or vanilla or coconut. It was overall very boozy and hard to consume neat even over ice. Definitely more of a Mixer.
