Best I've had at this pricepoint. Top shelf mixer, and can be enjoyed neat or on the rocks...but not as smooth neat or on the rocks as some others that can be had for $10 more. Tried it with sone friends right from the bottle, on a very cold night outdoors. We warmed the bottle over the fire and it was very good that way....or it could have been the situation and company

Light nose. Very strong alcohol taste and a nice heat that lingers for quite awhile. Enjoyable with a strong alcohol taste.

I love the smoothness of this rum. My go-to for cocktails, as it is both cheap & good!

This is a flexible rum. I can happily sip it neat, I can mix it up. I don't feel like it's too fancy for mixing, but also not too low-brow to sip.

Nice golden color. Light orange aroma, with other flavors peeking through. There's no mistaking the Jamaican in this one. Nice flavor on the tongue, not sweet, light bite. Lingers a bit when you swallow.
Nice inexpensive rum, one I think would be at home in any rum collection.

It is a good rum, and in classic Appleton style - but not as good as the 12yo. Lacks some of the complexity, and structure. A bit raw.

It gets the job done better than other inexpensive rums.

When I lived in the caribbean I loved Appleton. I had graduated from navy rum to jamaican rum and I was 21. Nowadays I can’t stand it. 21 yr, 30 yr, Joy. Its all too dry with an odd taste. Obviously thd bottom barrel rum is worse. If I want dry I will go Agricole, or maybe an Ged Diplomatico. This is just not good
