Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
At first the scent comes off as if it were going to be harsh, but then you take a sip and you figure out it’s just the strong spices coming out, with a medium caramel. The rum goes down smooth, not what I was expecting. For 20 dollars, it’s definitely better than captain org. and Bacardi spiced.
Burnt sugar and citrus on the nose, very smooth stuff, I love this for mixing and thoroughly enjoy sipping it. Hard to beat for the price.
This is fantastic stuff. Mixes really well and can be a supper too. Smooth but with character. Not very flammable. Not too sweet. Not too funky. Not too heavy. Great flavor. The average rating here is low in my opinion.
Confession: I drink rum in shots. Usually 7 or more to be exact, over a 2-3 hour period. The rum doesn't have to be overly complex, obviously. But it needs to be smooth enough not to torch my gullet, and have a delicious aftertaste. This rum fits the bill at an attractive price point. I has the Jamaican funk, but with the edges rounded off. It's a great $20 rum, like Mount Gay or Plantation Barbados. Tastes like it's aged at least 2 years or more, maybe even 5. It's a well-made bottle of booze.
Great taste smooth but with Carmel taste and a slightly fruity finish but not sweet their are a lot better Rums out their but for the price you can't beat it 1.5 oz and 1 Rock
I love Appleton Signature for tiki drink mixes, this is why I give it an 8...why bother spending more if you are mixing it. Sure you could get a 12 year Appleton and it is great but when the other ingredients blend the tiki Gods are smiling:) Aloha from West Palm Beach Fl!
Nicely balanced well priced rum very enjoyable. Not tried any other Appleton rums to compare, but the best value priced rum I’ve drank to date.
Next stop Appleton aged versions, can’t wait!
For the price, it’s a decent choice. With a biting and funky taste, even if that rum is strong and not easy to drink, it’s somehow enjoyable and a classic. No sweet added.
This is an excellent go-to rum if you're making a lot of drinks at home or commercially. It gives plenty of the Jamaican hogo funkiness called for in many tiki drinks...at a nice price!
Very smooth...a light charred flavor with sweet fruit..a much better bodied rum than the 12 year old..great sipper or with coke
There's just something pleasant about Appletons rums. Nothing harsh or overpowering. Some might say a little boring. I find it a really nice drop mixed or on ice. An everyday mix for an everyday person. Not pricey and still decent enough to look forward too at the end of a hard day.
I use the Signature and Reserve as an entry level tasting to hogo flavors. While this is definitely hogo in training wheels, it's delicious as a mixer or even on ice.
This gets a definite not bad from be on the third sip straight up. I’d serve it, maybe sip it, mix it and ship it.
An honest effort and a good deal. However as a top shelfer as in where I’m at says more about the bar than the booze. Tastes kinda like rum. Beginners Xaymacan.
