Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
It tastes like rum flavored grain alcohol. Could not finish the bottle even as a mixer. Seems like the quality of the Signature Blend has really gone downhill in recent years.
This is a very good choice of rum for those times when you just need a bottle to drink before a night out etc. It has a similar taste and finish to the 12 year old rare blend however this one is nowhere near as smooth. It can be a little harsh to some, probably the reason the ratings are so bad but i still find this one enjoyable enough and much more interesting than the regular rums like Captain Morgan etc. The finish is also pretty good. It's not one of the best by any means but it's nowhere near as bad as the ratings and reviews on here suggest!
In seek of jamaican mixing rum i tried this one and gave away the bottle in the middle.
It's like a trace of fruit and butterscotch flavores on your nose, but after you take a sip a 151 bacardi gasoline overwhealms your mouth. Tried to mix it in my mai tai... but regreted because gasoline feeling have killed all enjoy from the cocktail.
Appleton Estate is the standard in which I compare most mid-range Amber Rums. Excellent it is not, however, it’s flavours pair well in simple or complex cocktails, as well as mixed drinks, and it serves to divide what a good or bad rum should be. I stock it as my base stock Amber Rum in my home bar and always recommend it above Bacardi for a cheaper priced rum.
It's very boring and quite rough.
I wouldn't say it was really bad, but it also hasn't got a whole lot i can say that's good about it.
It just lacks flavour. Not really for sipping which even basic Havana Club 7 year is good for.
It's ok in orange juice cocktails or just in coke.
Also appeared to give me a worse hangover than other rums of the same price.
