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
This is a standard rum that a bottle found it's way under my bar. Had it for a few years and not finished yet. It is more of a mixer than a sipper as it is too harsh for my tastes.
This is my third try with Appleton Estate Rums. I finally came to the conclusion that this type of rum is not for me. Each had a funky taste that I found hard to drink. Moving on to other brands
Appleton produces some higher rated rums, but this one left me wanting. The blend does lend to a unique flavor but misses the take.
This was my first Appleton Estate rum, so I was going in expecting a whole bouquet of flavours. Unfortunately, save for some very pleasant softness, there really wasn't that much of an exotic flavour to it. Yes - it's a Jamaican-style rum, so some cask burn and spice are expected, but the journey was over too soon, and the finish wasn't very delicate either (it does gain in complexity after a couple of sips, and benefits from some breathing time). It's a pretty average rum that can be commended for no added sugar. But let's not forget, sometimes added sugar actually allows other flavours to come through (such as the case with Zacapa 23 Solera). I'm looking forward to trying other Appleton rums I keep hearing legends about.

"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."
