Sweet, but delicious, I want it poured over waffles.

If nothing else is available you can usually find appleton gold, reserve or signature blend. All of them are a worthy choice for last resort.

I would say any of these are lightly superior to Flor de can 12 year, and like half the price. A good standby choice.

Delicious Jamican Rum, I have had some to sip but I find it's best use is in a Mai Tai, or grog.

nice rum with citrussy and funky notes on the nose. The taste is nice and smooth, no real alcohol burn, again some citrus, orange, some banana, and quite some funk. Spicy, medium long finish. pleasant but nothing special.
nice price-quality!

I rank this up there with Smith and Cross in quality but the two are different styles.
This Appleton is darker and smooth where as the S&C has a kick to it and is lighter.
I would use this more as a go to Jamaican and the S&C for special occasions.
Also tasted side by side with J Wray, defiantly like the more aged Appleton.

This was introduced to me as an upgrade mixing rum from white Bacardi. I really liked it until I tried it as a sipping rum -NOT... very bitter. Still a great flavor with coke or orange juice.

Darker colours than many. Carmel, honey and light flavours. Its not overpowering or heavy on alcohol taste. It is a good one for me for mixing though I prefer Sailor Jerry for that.

It's a middle of the pack rum. Unaltered, a little phenolic, and a touch of funk.

Nothing special until I made mojitos with it at a pool party. Wonderful for rum cocktails. Make yourself popular and throw some mint on this stuff.

De los más simples. Muy dulce para mi gusto aunque superior al V/X
