Sweet aroma and first taste, next tones are already from the agricole family - fruits, wood etc. Body is "wild" with more different tones, shorter aftertaste. Good starting rum for agricole virgin 🙂
Schönes sattes Bernstein mit Kupferreflektionen im Glas.
In der Nase unverwechselbar Caroni. Alte gewachste Holzmöbel, harzige frische Früchte, kräftig gewürztes Karamell...……..
Im Gaumen, jawohl, 64.1% geben so richtig Gas. Stark gebranntes Karamell trifft auf dunkel getoastetes Holz, Lakritze mit Früchten, Blumen mit Bitumen, so wie es nur ein Caroni sein kann !
Im Abgang ? Immerwährend !
Ein Caroni der mich stark an die Rum Nation Abfüllungen erinnert. Mehr Holz als Diesel. 9+

Beautiful rich amber with copper reflections in the glass.
In the nose unmistakable Caroni. Old waxed wooden furniture, resinous fresh fruits, strongly spiced caramel......................................................
On the palate, yes, 64.1% really put the pedal to the metal. Strongly burnt caramel meets dark toasted wood, liquorice with fruits, flowers with bitumen, as only a caroni can be!
In the finish ? Everlasting !
A Caroni which reminds me strongly of the Rum Nation bottlings. More wood than diesel. 9+

Aroma is not bad, but first taste is alcohol kick with something strange in background...
Aftertaste is nice average with fruity tones. Agricole fans can add + 0.5 or 1 point but this is definitely not my favorite kind of rum.
This a great tasting rum that is best in a Daiquiri or other cocktails that need a coconut flair. I rated this at a 8 because of its natural flavoring and the purity of the rum. If was to rate this as drinking it neat it would be a six, but because it’s so versatile, it’s a 8.
Full aroma but not somehow special. First surprise and smile on your fave will come after first taste...
Smooth, "sweet" and full body. Nice peach and honey tones perfectly combined with dryier higher alcohol base. Long aftertaste is helping you to enjoy your rumorgasm 😍 Only one minus point I can find is higher price and bad availabilty
This to me had a strange flavor and a strong aftertaste. I like the Plata better. I will need to taste again later.
Nice complex aroma. First taste sweet with warm tones. Perfect ballance between sweet and dry side. Perfect level of alcohol (56%) to highligt the character but not kill the mouth with burnining. Long aftertaste with wood and earth tones.
Had this rum in a daiquiri and little bit of it neat. The aroma was very pleasant. With pineapple and coconut aromas. I think this is a kicked up version of RumHaven.
Had Dan Thurston from Sovereign Brands come in and give our rum club a tasting. I enjoyed the rum. It doesn’t taste like a traditional rum, a lot of different flavor profiles. It is a very nice naturally spiced rum.
I'd heard about Appleton's years ago in NY. So when I found a bottle at the ABC by my buddies house i bought. As my title says.... especially for the price. On the bright side it ain't gasoline. Easy to drink however you like, even as a Cuba Libre. My biggest complaint was that it had very little body and flavor. What was there was pleasant enough and a decent choice for the start up rum drinker.
I bought this brand awhile ago after reading about the origins of the "Dark & Stormy". As call rum and good ginger ale is one of my favorites, thought I would give it a go. Not again even if you're buying. I've never tasted motor oil but have to say I think it would be something like this. I'll have to ask Dominic Greene. Also tried their canned ginger ale mixer, don't it's packed with corn fructose.
I received a bottle as a gift last year and really enjoyed it. Very excited that I can buy it online now. Just received my first order of 4 bottles and loving it with Fever Tree Ginger Beer on the rocks! Very smooth as a sipper too. To be shared with family members and very close friends only!
