Tasty, but not quite great
This is OK as a mixer rum or consumed with coke but completely dreadful as straight up or on the rocks rum... Appleton highly priced and over rated
I'm still fairly new to rum, but I've had a fair share recently. To me, this is a bit harsh on the finish. I get some caramel notes and not much vanilla.
Rum is very simple and smooth . It can be sipped while drinking - yes. Difficult taste and aroma you will not find here - an entry-level blend. Drink pure in the rocks or cocktail. Without frills. I would prefer to add money and buy 12 years.
and it will show it's quality. Somewhat aromatic, but just too harsh and burning for my taste to drink it pure or with water/ice.
I am using this one for cocktails that need a tasty rum, the mixing takes away the harshness and burn.
This was my first Jamaican blended rum and it became my go to for a few years. As I was exposed to more rums it quickly dropped down a bit but I still enjoy a glass on ocassion. Usually with mix though.
Sweet, a little harsh, and full of spices. Appletons flavor has come to be synonymous with Jamaican spiced rum.
Just as a sign of respect for the people making the rum, I won't give it a 1. If you want to make me mad, serve me this rum. Harsh, bad tasting, this is by far the rum I like the least.

"A touch of vanilla and ginger. There is still a hit of molasses on the nose and some spiced black pepper. The rum is quite delicate initially. It is a hot spicy rum."
