Easily consumable in a bind
Now this rum i found very smooth with very little burn, however cannot find a distinguishing flavour or aroma, maybe a little citrus but actually quite bland. Very nice with a dash of ginger beer. Disappointing for my first taste from this great estate.
but for that price i was hesitating to buy a bottle. I rather spend money on a product that is worth of it...
So this was just an occasional buy - i'll never do it again.
It's good for a mixer but not as a standalone sipper. And for a mixer i can buy something cheaper...
I like this rum. It seems to be the stable standard for The Appleton Estate Marquee, and I think it can be enjoyed as a reasonable straight, or as a good mixer, and so represents pretty good value, and useful to have in the drinks cabinet.
I would agree with other reviewers, that it does not benefit form the long time in the barrels that some of the premium rums, nevertheless it delivers.
This is not a rum that makes a bold statement or gives one a hint of any specific flavor or aroma. It is not a sipping rum after a good dinner with good company. I give it a 6 because it's a good every day rum that, for me, mixes well with a Pepsi after a long day at the office.
Low rating do strong alcohol taste. Seemed very cheap even though it cost more than many others at my local store. Priced higher than private stock and its not even close in comparison.
I got a small bottle of this stuff to see what the hype was. I couldn't really pick up anything beyond the harshness of it. It is all the rave among tourists in Jamaican, yet I have never seen my Jamaican family drink this stuff (with good reason). Perhaps one of their more premium blends will be better.
Tried this as a pre-dinner, post-long day at work pleasure and was disappointed. Very harsh after taste for me with little in the way of complex flavors to enjoy and decipher. I'm not too happy with my attempts at Appleton rums.
I do like this rum, but feel like the V/X was better. I think the Signature Blend has replaced it. It has the potstill flavor I have come to enjoy, but is still lacking elsewhere. Many other good choices in the ~$20 range, but this is worth trying and I may like it best neat.
This is good, nothing amazing but it's good for an all around. Mixes well in drinks, and has a nice, not overpowering, molasses flavor which makes it good for baking and cooking too. Easy to find, good pricing, solid.
La nueva fórmula sabe a pintura, normalmente mezclo este ron, es mejor comprar el VX lo puedes identificar en la etiqueta al frente, no comprar el que dice 1749
"The initial sip is quite smooth but the palate soon heats up and feels the black pepper again, this time with some chilli and ginger spice."
