This is scary smooth for an Appleton Estate rum. It won’t hold a candle to some of the big dogs Appleton Estate has to offer, but this is a very tasty rum. Especially good for those who are sensitive to the spice notes or the “burn”, this is great on the rocks or with any mixer.
I had this chilled, so the flavors are pretty easy. It's like a lighter, nicer iteration of Appleton. If you are trying to get into Jamaican rum, I'd start here.
Bien pour mixer, tout juste passable seul. Ne prétend pas à plus - bon pour ce qu'il est. Il ne déçoit donc pas.
Good for what it is - a good mixer. Juste passable alone. Don't pretend to be more, so don't deceive.
I would say this is a fair rum, solid product, but very strong (not nasty alcohol burn) which was surprising for me. Also has a some of what people call funk. Not very complex
It's a lightly aged mix. It works as base mixer and is relatively cheap. Passable as a sipper. I have used this and Plantation 3 star as my base lightly aged mixer and can't decide which one to stick to. I may be a little more partial to the Plantation 3 star. Definitely better than Mt. Gay Eclipse which I have not learned to enjoy yet.
Sold often in a 1.75 L which saves a lot of money vs buying 750ml
I expected less from this being their entry level line but really enjoyed it. My sense of smell is never great but this is by far the least noticeable of my rums tried thus far. Some nice bold flavours initially filling my mouth turning it into a smile although dissipated fairly quickly. Something I will enjoy again. A distinctive mild pleasant liquorice aftertaste..
Nice lightly aged blended rum! This rum is not a sipper, but it’s a great value for a great mixer. This one is a workhorse for my cocktail hobby.
There are some notes of oak in there (I find oak to be a hallmark of Appleton rums). This rum has some character, as well, which I like a lot when mixing it. It’s robust enough to add something to a cocktail.
For its age and price this rum is wonderful.
