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.

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.

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.

I had low expectations due to some of the reviews on this site and the low cost of this rum, but I must say I was pleasantly surprised. It's not a bad sipper - not great - but not bad. It adds a nice layer to cocktails, but it doesn't shine through like one of my Plantation offerings. I have so many better rums that I won't waste much time drinking it. I think its' best use will be for guests at my home tiki bar who are not big rum drinkers.

I think this rum is the quintessential Jamaican style rum. Of course it is not a fine sipping rum, but contrary to other reviews, I actually think this one is fine to drink neat. It has just a touch of funk and isn’t overly harsh compared with other rums in its price range. I think it is far superior to something like Bacardi Gold. It’s my go-to Jamaican rum for punches and goes great with cola.

Appleton special with a new badge, Jamaican funk, not my friend but a nice neighbor to party with.

Saw this in the store and thought I’d give it a try. Definitely not a ‘neat’ or ‘sipping’ rum. Haven’t tried it as a mixer, but can see this working well with coke if you’re after that sweet taste followed by a burn.

J. Wray - nevěřil jsem mu už od počátaku z důvodu Jamajky
Výsledek není zas tak zlý jak by mohl být
Chuť ostřejší lehce štiplavá, ale nepálí tolik
slabších 07/10

First of I am letting you know that I drink all my rums with cola light. Cola light keeps the taste of the rum. Regular cola doesn’t.
This is a nice rum to mix. It has a good fruitful flavor and a mild after taste.
I would not recommend this rum for drinking it pure. But as a mixing rum it does very well. Cheers!

Its rebranded Appleton Special. It has some basic funk and makes a fine Daiquiri and thats exactly how it should be used. Nothing less nothing more
