very simple but too sharp burn.
Worth a try... but not a second time.
This rum is just ok. Nothing specially good or bad.
I really like the smell of this rum - toffee banana, nutmeg, burnt sugarcane.
Taste is also pleasant with moderately sweet vibes and some light pepper on the background. Downside is that the taste is a bit thin for me and finish is quite short. Given the fact that Appleton probably tried to push this both for mixing and sipping market in my mind they have actually succeeded. It’s a good example that both works well on its on neat and mixed with sodas and other things. I love the fact that it adds some oaky body to cuba libres and it actually tastes real good.
Definitely can’t go higher than a 7 because of the excessive filtering and blending but 6 feels too low for this rum.
Decent rum for the price, mix with lime simple syrup and cola
Made Dons own grog with this. Made for a nice night on the porch.
I enjoy the Signature Blend for mixing. Yes this one is better but considering this isn't a sipper and for the price I can't really say this is worth the upgrade. It's still a solid rum.
A step up from their regular label, great for rum & coke or Piña Colada.
I bought this rum after a Disney cruise as I thought it my be what I had there but signature blend turned out to be what they were serving. This is much better than the signature blend but still not a rum I would buy regularly.
Good and sweet. Rich caramel - good value but not as good as 12 or 15 year
Nice spicy oak notes dominate, with only hints of fruit and just a small undertone of funk.
"A fruity experience. It’s initially quite sweet – nice fruity notes banana, mango maybe a little grape, which fade into an almost tangy dry zesty spice. The finish is medium long."

Better values out there 6 out of 10
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 that’s about it for me.
