Tasted 1/28/20 at Laka Lono
From the notes:
"ok. This is super strong. but/and I like it. I shouldn't, but I do."
Original rating was 4/5 rum barrels, so translated to a 7 in this system.

Not really great. But not bad either.
I get some aromas that arenโ€™t delightful but then sipping I get whisky like caramel, flanโ€ฆ
Some heat, also not ideal. Who has all perfect..
Edit , I agree itโ€™s a little plain. But a lot of people want a flavor where clean = plain-ish

Bottle purchased in Tulsa, OK. Pitch golden color. Mild funkiness to the aroma. Slight tongue numbing palate. Mild cane sugar sweetness with some white grape notes. Slight cardboard finish. The aroma carries this.

This one goes right into coke and makes a very good job there. The Jamaican sweet banana and pineapple is present in the mix, not over the top, but pleasant and still recognizable in both smell and taste, without any added sugar. Would the smell and taste be stronger just a tad more - it would be an eight.

This is a non-confrontational gold rum. Just a hint of funk and no real burn. I would probably use it in mixed drinks but I am afraid it would not add much besides the alcohol.

There is very little that would be remarkable about this rum. It has a little dundery funk, which is great. But only a very little. It is otherwise very tame, a bit of spices, a bit of orange or lemon maybe.

But it is quite dry. I do not think they added sugar to this. Or if they did, it is very little only. And this is great and deserves some credit.

Plus it works great as a mixer and it is inexpensive. Hard to recommend for sipping, unless one is looking for a very tame Jamaica experience. But a great choice if the goal is to get a little drunk and not spend to much time or effort on this.

The nose is a very unobtrusive banana and light ginger. Taste is a subtle honeysuckle and clove but ultimately is anemic compared to other Appleton expressions. Would recommend as a mixer to stretch more expensive rums or to sip of you're not feeling up to the headier stuff.

I was pleasantly surprised by this rum. It has a little bit of the Jamaican funk, slight sweetness and oak. Not much burn for a rum that doesn't appear to be aged for too long, and very easy sipper. Not overly complex but the finish has a decent length, and the flavor is really nice.
Light in color but decent amount body. In my opinion this is better (and cheaper) than Appleton Signature blend.

Nothing fancy here, just a decent Jamaican rum with just the tiniest hint of funk.

Not great on its own but mixes in with some other rums and some fruit juice, citrus and bitters, and you will not complain.
