Appleton for me under excites and find it hard to distinguish a premium from the regular blends and not sure if they have an ultra available for the masses

Very fruity, almost overwhelming nose. Smoky taste takes over all others, with a lingering slightly unpleasant spice. Better when Coke is added, but still not great.

This is a little rough for sipping, but great for mixkng. Just a little pricey for mixing , I'd rather use Cruzan extra old

- vůně příjemná, málo typická Jamajka, krásně je cítit zrání v sudech po bourbonů, jemná, do ořechů
- chuť jemná, oříšková, med, pomerančová kůra, dřevo
Závěr jemně nahořklý, dřevitý, skvělý 👍

My first Rum
Coming from whisky, this thing is like banana and pineapple syrup. Along with all the traditional light spices, left in the glass a while it calms down. Little sugared orange and ginger comes out.

Need to breath a lot but anyway some rubber notes there.

Appleton has some products with bragging rights but this one falls a bit short.

Typical Appleton flavors but a bit middle of the road. I like the 12 and up, or signature for mixing. Everything in the middle seems to be waste of time and money for me.

Thumbs-up if you've been to Jamaica! This is a solid yet basic rum by which I was able to compare superior Appleton products while visiting Jamaica.

This reminds me more of whiskey than rum. It lacks the roundness of rum in the mouth.

A chemical nose with little discernible notes apart from sugar cane.

Not bad, but very one dimensional from first sip to finish.

Nose: oaky, vanilla with a faint herbaceous note that reminds me of camphor or cough drops. Pepper and oak meet pumpkin pie spice. On the palate: peppery, oak and a faint butterscotch note. A quick finish without much length. I think this would make a fine mixer but would not be my choice as a stand alone sipper.
