This rum deserves to be rated higher. Of course it is not a great sipping experience but for such a low price it is an excellent white mixing rum.
Good for pina coladas! This and blue chair bay have been so far my favourite cheap white rums! Very tasty and whoops the hell out of trashy bacardi white!
would recommend for pina coladas and other coconut beverages for sure!
N- Soft earthy with obvious hit of acceptable burns, some nice floral and funky cane with clove emerged overtimes. (19/25)
P- Yeasty, plain yoghurt with hint of sour cream, mild, hint of oak and naturally sweets. Straight forward with notable character. (20/25)
F- Medium, dry and clean with nice hint of charred oak, light candy sweet. (20/25)
Balance:- Pale but rounded. Basic and soft as it should be. (19/25)
Weighted Rate:- 78pt

Basic white rum. Bought it to infuse and left a dose to taste. Smell is very neutral, can let me think it's a rum issued from clean molasses. In mouth it feels very oily and then all I get is peppercorn, black pepper. Almost gave it a 4.
Great added to a coconut with ice and pineapple. Used to have it all the time when I was posted to Belize in the 80's in one of the many, many small little rum shacks everywhere. Underrated in my opinion. A nice smooth white, not too strong and not that sweet.
Drunk neat, it's inoffensive. In a mojito, it murders it by being tasteless.
I guess it turns out I like rich and complex rums that shine in a cocktail.
I was expecting a lot of heat and roughness but what I found was a nice, easy-going young rum. A nose that is full of banana and ripe fruit. It works well as a rum & coke or better still in cocktails. It has a little funk but as is usual with Appleton, nothing crazy. My standard go-to for young, blended, pot still rums.
"Exhibits a very sweet flavour like Bacardi but fortunately without that nasty almost grainy Bacardi note. Very full flavoured sweet notes of rich tropical fruits."
