Average rum that doesn’t really shine in any department.

No more no less just ok. Price ok for everyday quality rum.

Appleton has recently changed the name of this rum to Appleton Estate Signature Blend, but it's still the same rum. It's not bad, but a little strong for my tastes. Rather than "strong", maybe I should say that it doesn't mix well with cola?? Not really sure how to describe it. It's an okay rum, but nowhere near my favourite. I think I'd try other brands before coming back to this one.

I laughed out loud (it's kinda late here. I hope the neighbors slept through it.) as I hovered my cursor over the "two-bottle" rating mark and it displayed "barely drinkable-gasoline like"..It's really not quite that bad so I chose a higher rating. This rum isn't bad at all, actually. But, it's rather unmemorable with no complexity (unless you compare it to something like Bacardi Silver, which to me tastes like isopropyl alcohol that was stored near a tin that once held cane syrup and a dash of acetone). THis one barely makes the grade. I don't think that Appleton Estates is a poor distillery. they make several very nicely complex rum options that have character and flavor galore. THis is just the one they pump out to fill liquor store shelves and keep the lights on (in my humble rambling opinion). add ice, lime juice, and some orange like me, if you want to have more than two. it definitely improves things.

Not a sipper or on the rocks.

No complexity what so ever, needs a mixer.

Spend a little bit more and get something nicer.

Why they have even made this?!?!? Pass years I have had this feeling that the quality of Appleton has gone down. Even their 12-years old does not taste as it used to.
I was expecting little more when I decided to taste these "relatively new ones" Signature and Estate Reserve Blend. Same crap both of them. This one is just slightly more interesting, but unfortunately interesting does not make it better

very simple but too sharp burn.
Worth a try... but not a second time.

This is not a rum to be drinking neat.

If you must drink it, it needs a whole lot of diluting to become even slightly palatable. It is cheaper than other Appleton offerings, to be fair, but there are much nicer rums in this price bracket.

Definitely not a rum for me.

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.
