It's super cheap and tastes as cheap as it costs. It can be drinkable mixed with coca-cola but get ready for the massive headache on the next day.

This was the second Appleton rum I tried and I was shocked that it was only a small step down from the V/X, which was a few dollars more. It's not quite as smooth as that one but still pretty smooth. The taste is decent and it's a great value for being a regular ol' gold rum.

I like to use this rum in tiki drinks that calls for a golden jamaican rum. Not very tasty for sipping though.

Only had a miniature of this, but a bit bland for my liking. Nice taste, but just too little of it.

I tasted this years and years ago in Jamaica. Perfect to mix but sipped neat there are way better rums. If the price is right just buy it

While I know this rum isn't really meant as a sipper, I'm giving it a go neat.

On the nose there is banana, pepper, salt, caramel, cloves and some sourness. The palate is caramel, light oak and pepper. Very thin and watery; simple flavours. The finish is coffee and very short.

Overall a very thin and simple rum, but there also isn't anything very off-putting.

Maybe as a well brand but nothing great going on here, so save it for mixers, don’t torture for me to drink neat.
