Aye, this rum dances the line between heaven and hell. Decent aroma! The flavor be spicy, with hints of vanilla and... raisin? This be not an overly sweet rum, but definitely not for sippin'... not without a lot of better rum in you first! There be worse rum to be had. Still not sure? Flip a doubloon. Heads, you try a better rum. Tails, you try a better rum.

Not my favourite. The rum is sharp and without any body.

There's not really anything else to do with this other than mix it.

De los rones basicos que alguna vez cualquier ronero tomo en un cuba libre.

This is not a 'sipper' but at £16 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.

Moving from bourbon to rum was made easier withbthis appletons, you get lots of the vanilla and citrus notes from the bourbon influence right away. Then a big hit of fruits and delicate spices. Its not a game changer but it has its place and its always enjoyable without being exceptional.

Perfect for Rum cocktails, but not ideal as a sipper over ice. Its what I'd choose if I wanted a rum and coke.

A little bit sharp, but tasty rum, to drink on the rocks or mixed.
