Tasty, but not quite great

This is my go to rum for rum and coke. Incredible flavours make it tasty so you can enjoy the drink without smashing it down.

Jamaican rum for coca-cola and ice.
I would prefer others Appleton Estate.

Okay rum, nice blend of flavours. Not a huge fan but appreciate the bottle

This is a middle of the road mixer at best. It gets more hype than I feel it deserves. Mount Gay by another name. Golden and nearly flavorless rum.

“’re just not drinking” was the phrase from Jamaica spring break a long time ago. But for now, middle of the pack.

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.

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.

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.
