Very smooth easy to drink I prefer it straight . Rich I taste and yet affordable to drink . I have drank Myers dark rum for yrs but I just tried Appleton Special Gold and was very impressed with the taste and price .

This is not a 'sipper' but at ยฃ16 a bottle is a lovely rum and coke. You still get a rum' kick'and flavour as long as you don't try to drown it in your coke. Recommended as a go to cheap rum to take with coke, plenty of ice and a slice of lime as a double in a small glass. Cheers.

Quaffable when mixed or blended. A go to for a daquiri or cocktail. Not sure I would sip it. Perhaps over ice with soda.

It's not the best rum I've ever had but it is one of my favorites. Mainly because I only drink it when I'm in Jamaica. It's not the smoothest of rums but mixes well with just about anything.

I keep a bottle around to accompany my Mount Gay Eclipse. Pretty basic rum with good flavor and great price.

Really good Golden Rum and less than $20 a bottle where I live. If you have a few extra dollars I would definitely buy one of the aged Appleton rums, but this my favorite gold rum. Only gold rum that I consider a sipping rum.

This is what I would consider to be standard rum. Made in Jamaica, a little bitter by itself, mixes great.
