Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Basic white rum. Bought it to infuse and left a dose to taste. Smell is very neutral, can let me think it's a rum issued from clean molasses. In mouth it feels very oily and then all I get is peppercorn, black pepper. Almost gave it a 4.
Good for pina coladas! This and blue chair bay have been so far my favourite cheap white rums! Very tasty and whoops the hell out of trashy bacardi white!
would recommend for pina coladas and other coconut beverages for sure!
Not as nice as Wray, but for the price, it's OK. Another mixer...
I had a few drinks of Appleton Estates White rum while vacationing in Oaxaca Mexico. Very basic and dull bottle and label design. Very strong alcohol to the nose and palate if neat sipped. Mixes okay with your favorite soda drinks though.
N- Soft earthy with obvious hit of acceptable burns, some nice floral and funky cane with clove emerged overtimes. (19/25)
P- Yeasty, plain yoghurt with hint of sour cream, mild, hint of oak and naturally sweets. Straight forward with notable character. (20/25)
F- Medium, dry and clean with nice hint of charred oak, light candy sweet. (20/25)
Balance:- Pale but rounded. Basic and soft as it should be. (19/25)
Weighted Rate:- 78pt

Has a lot of alcohol smell and bite, so not the smoothest to drink neat. Despite this I keep finishing and buying bottles. Ofcourse the price is great and it has a happy taste that I haven't found elsewhere: the taste of marshmallows. Notes: alcohol, candy, tropical fruits, sugar, vanilla.
(I think this is the same as Wray's Silver)
Un ron perfecto para cockteles cítricos.
En verano se le puede sacar su máximo provecho para los cockteles de las damas,
Its a basic rum, cheap and you can find it everywhere. Its a good option for the Cubas Libres.
Great for any cocktails that require a white rum. Decent enough taste, not something I would sip on it's own but for the price it does the job.
Normally I don't white rums....but that is not very bad. Generally worth to try...but maybe you doesn't like it :)
A good white rum with a mix not a sipping rum to strong
This is a strong cocktail rum that is perfect for a standard mojito
but great if you want to strip paint off of something. not to be drunk warm. in a plastic cup. or from a tiny plastic flask. unless you're a wino. and you're not reading this review. it's not even a "drink this to get drunk" rum, i know its Jamaican, but it doesn't feel very "piratey"
Not really designed to be sipped neat, mixes great though. Very good value, made and bottled in Jamaica. I'll take it over Bacardi any day.
Es de los peores rones, no lo recomiendo ni para coctelería
I like the White I agree its a mixer but it is very pleasing and fun, enjoyable. I think well above Bacardi, don't be afraid go for it!
A mixer rum nothing to be said about it. ONLY to be drank with mixing in mind.
I actually really enjoyed this rum for mixers. It was great with Soda and Lime, Cuba Libre and Mojito's. Had a taste neat and could taste the vanilla but not great for sipping.
As other reviews have said, this is not a sipping rum by any means. I use it for mojiyos mostly.
This has a mildly pungent Jamaican rum flavor but it's a little harsh. A few friends like mixed drinks with a mild rum taste and this works with juice or a rum and tonic. It's fairly inexpensive too. I prefer this over the Myers version.
As far as white rums go, this is pretty good. Definitely not a sipping rum and is a bit harsh but still has some good sugar cane flavor that comes through immediately. Take it for what it is intended. This is a good inexpensive white rum begging to be mixed.
A great mixer, considering the price and if u are tired of Bacardi.
First this IS NOT what appleton white looks like. Its a clear rum like bacardi superior. Smells of STRONG vanilla and light alcohol. Drinking a white rum straight 9/10's is a bad idea and this one wasn't an acceptation. VERY harsh straight. The reason most white rums are harsh is because of their age being very young only 2-3 years! So mixing with coke is a must! Very very good in coke though. Its harshness is all gone and replaced with heat. Its simple but I enjoy it for a white rum, strong hints of vanilla and some sweetness that stands out. Not much else to it but its actually really pleasant all together so I give it a good rating.
Nose: Smells like vodka.
Feel: Quite oily. Not too much bite.
Taste: Sweet white sugar.
Price: 38 CAD for 1.13L
For when you need to make lots of rum punch for a party, but little other uses. Probably wouldn't use in a Daiquiri unless pressed for options.
Better than Bacardi, Worse than Captain Morgan (which I found surprisingly good) and Havana Club.
