This rum has little character. It's a bit harsh on the sides of the mouth. Not a general bad taste but nothing special. It is ok to mix.

No idea why Appleton Special renamed to this. Standard Jamaica rum, got that funk and probably not a sipper. Still an authentic Jamaica rum. Ya mon

Was pleasantly surprised by this rum especially since it is often found under the $20 mark. Great to spill for bars, parties, and guests but I would probably go with another rum if you are making cocktails for yourself.

The gold coloured spirit that is warm yet smooth; medium-bodied on the palate with fruity notes and hints of exotic spices that come through on the lengthy finish.

Not bad.. however I enjoyed it better before the renaming. Seems to me the flavor changed somewhat. I could be wrong but seems like it did.. maybe better for a mixed drink..

At $15 I doubt this is for sipping but let's give it a go...

Very nice little funkiness going on. Very mellow on the nose, you really have to inhale deeply to get even a burn. Tropical fruits, honey, mango nectar, cooked banana is really strong.
Surprisingly bland as it hits the tongue but develops as it goes down. The funkiness comes through really nicely. I would almost describe it as tangy.

Overall, this is a great cheap bottle to mix with or to sip on if thats your style. Very good example of a funky Jamaican rum with not too many frills. Very nice value for the price range.

Nothing of great interest here. Useful for the party well when making inexpensive drinks. Only the slightest hint of funk and pretty neutral. Nothing offensive so not a bad choice for making non rummies a tropical drink.

Found this on the bottom shelf at an LCBO in Ontario. Rot gut has its place but a bit rough even for this old pirate. Nice burn.
