It is in fact a good rum but it disappointed me as I tought it would be much better (especialy in a mai tai).

Not a sipper or on the rocks.

No complexity what so ever, needs a mixer.

Spend a little bit more and get something nicer.

This rum was named Best Rum in 2012 and was Chairman's awarded in New York. The world discovered my favorite rum of ots class then. It's replacement 8 year old reserve by Campari is DOES NOT COMPARE to the Reserve Blend's balanced colour, woody, vanilla and hits of coffee notes.

I miss this product very much and would love to find it.

Awesomely smooth. Got that funky Jamaican Sour flavour that is well known with appleton estate but it is incredibly smooth. It has a sweet finish and woody after-taste

Average rum that doesnโ€™t really shine in any department.

If someone tries it without knowing the rums and thinks that all rums taste like that, then they probably won't buy another one. The very artificial flavor reminds me of the artificial flavorings for low-quality cake. He is disgusting. I do not recommend to anyone. Completely lost money. In my opinion, it is absolutely useless. Neither for cocktails, nor for tea, and even less for clean drinking. In my opinion, Appleton is losing its reputation for such trash. I am ashamed to put it on my virtual shelf.

Nice colour and familiar Jamaica smell. Initial taste was too much funk and lacked a little depth but the after taste quite pleasant. Round two was an improvement - not sure if I will purchase again as the price category has some winners.

It's a very good run in the rocks and with soda I bought it very cheap and was suspicious but now it's a must have in my bar

Good, cheap funk. Smoother than the Signature Blend but still a mixer IMO.

Would always opt for the 12 year first, this rum is OK but I think this middle of the road why bother. It does mix well with coke but thatโ€™s about it for me.
