Tried both as a sipper as well as with cola and none was particularly great. OK for a larger party but will not buy again

Decent sipper. Light aroma, light flavor and no after taste. It says full bodied but I would disagree. Ok for a change up but would not be my go to

This could be an alright sipping rum if you were getting into rum. I normally would use it as a mixer.

On the nose there is oak, candied orange, ginger, apricot and brown sugar. The palate is caramel, oak and pepper. The finish is short: oak and almond, but not drying.

This is more pleasant than the Appleton Special Gold, but the palate is still thin and the finish very lacking. The nose is pleasant, and it is overall a little sweeter than the Special.

Excellent Basic Rum for your rum/cola. Grenat flavor

Somewhere in the middle between signature and 12, I would choose each over this. Nothing wrong but nothing great. Guess there is something for everyone.

This bottle holds special place for me last rum my dad and I shared before he passed away. Rum was a favorite of his

Nothing here to rave about.
Nothing here to complain about.
Squeeze of lime and a splash of juice and it’s perfectly acceptable.

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.

Definitely a decent rum for the price a mixed blend and a decent mixing rum as well

I'm not a big drinker, but when I do drink, it's going to be rum. I try some thing new every time. I bought this on New Years Eve and I still have some left. Usually rum will last a few weeks at the most. I love rum because it's so smooth and has such a versatile taste, but this stuff has a horrendous aftertaste like I'm drinking $5 swill. No matter what I did with it, it had a very dominant shoe leather taste. I will never buy this again.
