Has a lot of alcohol smell and bite, so not the smoothest to drink neat. Despite this I keep finishing and buying bottles. Ofcourse the price is great and it has a happy taste that I haven't found elsewhere: the taste of marshmallows. Notes: alcohol, candy, tropical fruits, sugar, vanilla.

(I think this is the same as Appleton White)

This one is a very straightforward white mixer, with alcohol smell, a bit of a lemon in taste, relatively smooth, slightly sweet but unsweetened. It is not bad, but there is no Jamaican traits in it which would make me to look for this rum next time I am going to buy a white rum. Still good value for money though, as a basic white mixer it works quite well.

There is nothing remarkable here. Not that there pretends to be, but this is a somewhat bland, oily, and rather pedestrian rum priced to compete with Bacardi. It is smoother than Bacardi, with slightly more flavor, but for only a few dollars more you can get a vastly superior rum somewhere else on the shelf. It has an aged note with some vanilla, and a fleeting bit of funk, but this is a rum you buy when you want to make a drink with rum but not taste rum. Sold for $16 at a local liquor store at the time of my purchase a year ago, but now selling for $20. At $16 it's okay. At $20, keep looking.

Smooth for a lower price white rum. I get something of a rum flavor that almost appears before my mouth and insides are thoroughly disinfected. You get a slight gasoline aftertaste too. Bottle says it was aged...maybe they mean aged in the glass bottle before you buy it.

For $16 I'm not devastated.

White, light rums are mixers. I see people ratting white, light rums very low mentioning the "sipping" factor. Nobody said that this kind is good for sipping. These are party, mixing, cocktail rums and should be rated as such. J Wray is an absolutely fine, fruity and tasteful rum. Far better than average found in grocery stores, got the funk and really enjoyable either with fruit juice or classic coke. Had it with sparkling pink grapefruit and a few grains of cinnamon. Fantastic. J Wray silver is Jamaica in the mix!

Definitely a mixer. But a very good one. Way better than Bacardi.

Good quality white rum with a good price. I always drink on ice or in my Pina Coladas. On the rocks, I get a smoky, smooth almost earthy and kind of roasted marshmallow taste. Not too bad!

I had already tried their horrible overproof as well as their gold rum, so I was hesitant to try this one. At only $16 in the hopes of finding hogo funk in a white rum, it was worth a try. Well, as I sip this one neat, all of the hogo has been filtered out. It is not offensive, but cannot quite compare to my top white rums. The back of the label recommends mixing it with fruit juices or using it in mojitos, and I agree on both counts. However, the fruit juices need to be more assertive than guava. This one is simply Appleton Silver in a new bottle and label. Much better than Bacardi Superior or anything from Captain Morgan.

Solid, but nothing special. Plain, but smooth, very little burn. I did read someone else say it is oily - I would need to sip again, but that sounds accurate. Not syrupy, no real flavors to detect (ultra-filtered?), but I drink my rum neat and this will do. No complaints, you could do worse. This rum at least has no added sugars or flavors (per the law in Jamaica).

I can't really tell you why I like this rum. I could not get any real flavors from it, but to me it just tasted good.

It's an ok rum, and just that. The smell, somewhat tropical, is more pleasing than the taste. Poor for sipping, bad for shots, okay for mixing.
