Very floral, grassy aroma, hints of pineapple, papaya, very little sweetness.
Relatively easy to drink neat, floral and fruit notes carry through. A bit of a bitter finish, sits heavy on the back of the tounge

I bought it to bring a bit of diversity for the weekly shot but It is not mind blowing at all. I don’t think I will buy again but I might give a try on the 12y version.

On it's own, I'm not a fan. But when I'm in the mood for an old fashioned, Appleton hits the spot every time.

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.

This is a fabulous mixer that can be used in most cocktails calling for an aged rum. I probably go through a bottle a month.

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

This rum was my second attempt at trying a Jamaican pot stilled rum after find Smith & Cross to just be way too overbearing for me. I really thought after Smith & Cross that strong "leather" note meant I would not like any Jamacian rums that everyone generally fawns over.

Now, before trying Appleton Estate I did try Plantation OFTD which certainly has a very small amount of Jamaican in it as the note is present, but I also mostly use that as a mixer for Tiki drinks so it was never overbearing.

For this rum, I was quite pleasantly surprised that while the noted characteristics of Jamaican rum are there. The bananas, leather, brown sugar etc, the leather portion didn't kick me in the teeth like Smith & Cross. I was happy to note that some Jamaican rums may indeed grow on me over time.

I think this is a good value rum in price terms. Versatile and respectable, taste better than the price would suggest it would
