Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
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!
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.
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)
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.
Has a hint of clove flavor in the body, start has a slight burn but finishes smooth.
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.
A good white rum with a mix not a sipping rum to strong
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.
Its a basic rum, cheap and you can find it everywhere. Its a good option for the Cubas Libres.
Turn any sweet beverage into an adult beverage with this rum. Coke, yup, diet coke, I guess, lemonade, sure, cool aid maybe chocolate milk, well its not rum for a daycare but I guess. This might be the cleanest (tasting) thing in many a dorm rooms across america. "Estate", I guess if Coors is a banquet beer this rum can be an Estate rum. I doubt the Trump estate has Appleton rum but... who knows.
If your having company I'd keep the bottle out of view but throw plenty of this in any blender and a good time will be had by all. Just so many of these mixable rums, nothing special here. I think its called Appleton rum because its the preferred rum of toothless sconnies in Appleton Wisconsin.
You're looking for a "Very Good" rum to have instead of the wretched Bacardi white, this one will amply do the trick at a similar or lower price.
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!
A mixer rum nothing to be said about it. ONLY to be drank with mixing in mind.
Normally I don't white rums....but that is not very bad. Generally worth to try...but maybe you doesn't like it :)
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.
As other reviews have said, this is not a sipping rum by any means. I use it for mojiyos mostly.
This is a strong cocktail rum that is perfect for a standard mojito
Un ron perfecto para cockteles cítricos.
En verano se le puede sacar su máximo provecho para los cockteles de las damas,
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"
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.
A great mixer, considering the price and if u are tired of Bacardi.
