Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
From now on default jamaincan mixing rum in my bar.
Woody aroma, typical jamaican funk taste and heavy, deep and warm aftertaste which stands up in mixed drinks.
Good with come or Ginger beer.
Works well as a mixer.Not one for sipping.
This is a base from which other rums should be rated. Can't go wrong with this fine Jamaican rum.
This is my go to rum for mixing cocktails! Great price and gives the bite and sweetness needed for those mixed umbrella drinks ;)
Rhum de base à avoir chez soi pour préparer cocktails comme Daiqiri!
Not the best for sipping, it's ok if you let it rest for a while, a good mixer though.
Ok mixer £15 a bottle on offer but there are so many better options to choose from
A bit hot for a 40% rum. Sipped neat the funk is there in the background but not so much that it stands out in a mixed drink. Not a bad rum to keep on hand for tiki drinks like a Gold Cup.
Its a easygoing rum.
Not too bad, but also not great.
This was one I tried soon after getting into rum, after Morgan's spiced gold.
In really liked it in the early days but not as much as CM.
I now like others more
It mixes decently but doesn't work well for sipping.At the price there are better options.This replaced the vx which was better and could actually sip it.I rate it 4.5
Very smooth, nice to drink on the rocks. A common favorite between the wife and I.
A good everyday rum. Taste is good, not too tasty but ok for a late mixer. The standard.
I was hoping when I bought this that it would be an upgrade to the V/X but sadly it is still only a mixing rum not a sipping one. Having said that I have not tried it with a spot of water which might tone down the bite and burn.
Probably better as a mixer...not so much straight up. Lacks bold rum flavor and packs a solid alcohol bite. Just ok
Not bad as a mixer with coke, but nothing more than that.
nothing special here, great straight or mixed. Great rum for the price for partying ! :)
Evidentemente no estamos hablando de un ron premium.
Estamos hablando de un ron versátil que podrá ser mezclado con alguna otra bebida gasificada y nos dara un sabor decente.
Definitivamente mi Ron favorito para consumir el día a día.
Not what i expected from appleton. Tasty but not great in cocktails. Worked great in food such as chocolate filling.
Sweet Appleton taste. It stings a little when sipping. Perfect with a bit of Sprite.
Quality control seems to have dropped with the move in the name. The blend has some nice qualities of molasses, caramel and raisins and I can taste some older (?) rums but it has a rougher edge of perhaps a higher % of younger rums. Still one of my staple mixers but no longer my preferred standard especially as the price in Australia has crept up compared to others
This rum has vanilla and oak tones with a slight burnt orange taste followed by a bit of a saccharine after taste.
Mixes well enough with cola, comes across as very middle of the road but earns a six due to its price point.
It is value for money if on a budget.
Not as good as the v/x but fine as a mixer both with cola or ginger beer , was a gift so everyone shared it , no hurry to replace the bottle.
Bit harsh but no added sugar , it does the job !
This is not a bad rum for the price (about US$15). Mixes well with soda although I prefer to drink it neat after letting it breathe for about ten minutes. It's not the best rum out there but also not the worst. Cheers
