For mixin' not sippin'. Does a darn good job at that. Very light body with some sweet rummy tastes. For the price, it gives you all you could expect.

This is a cheap okay rum. Take this to a party, hand it in and enjoy mixed with what ever. Not a sipper but the price you pay for this what do you expect

This bottle is simply to load up drinks to get the evening going. Keep this at any bar near a body of water and enjoy

Sugar 0 GPL.
Should be in a thin bottle to match the thin taste. Use a mixer, and with the thin taste you will need to add a bit more than usual. A friend had this in a Mojito and I tried one as well. Hard to taste any rum and I watched the bartender make it. Tried it neat and the taste was there for a moment and then it was gone. Not offensive in taste but it does compete with the Bacardi mixing rums, and for fans of Appleton's on vacation, I can see why it's used.

Use this for your run of the mill cocktails and punch bowls. Won't make them excellent but does it's job.

As a mixer it's ok but no more than that, would I buy to keep on the shelf........ No probably not as there are better mixers out there!

It’s a Jamaican standard and we bring back a couple of bottles each year.
