Excellent rounded rum
Aroma is beautiful, sweet and oaky. Molasses and vanilla stand out. Tastes smooth and warm. There is plenty of oak but I like that. Tried it with and
Warm orange on the nose then just about every aroma and flavour going. Smooth and rich, unlike my bank balance after I bought some. Great stuff.
XO Extra Old
On a par with the Appleton 12 year, maybe just edging it. Don't ruin it with mixer; good enough neat or with ice. Strong nose and full flavours. Inex
Best for under £40
Complex flavour and aroma. Good depth, plenty of everything going on here but quite sweet so could put off the rum purists. Sexy frosted glass bottle
Almost a 9!
Everything is balanced perfectly (aroma, colour, flavours) but it's maybe just a bit too subtle to be a 9. It's an 8.5. Got some in Punta Cana for abo
My favourite Appleton so far
I sat and just smelled it for a good half hour, thinking about what I was doing 21 years ago when it started life! Tastes smoother than the 12 yr, fla
Party in my mouth...
...a party that has got out of hand and someone let off fireworks indoors. Aroma and tastes are beautiful but there's too much heat in there. So clos
Special Reserve White Port Cask 15-Year
Smooth and rich
Yom yom yom. Get in my tum. Nice drop. Plenty to please.
Centenario XO Premio Platino
Tastes like nothing else I've tried so couldn't decide on an 8 or a 9. Sexy bottle, great aroma and unique flavours. Want to offer a 9 but I just can'
Good with cola mixer. Dark treacle with a hint of liquorice. Not great neat to be honest. Sweet, smooth. Good value.
Good not great
Ah, the aroma is great but there's too much alcohol burn. It's almost great. Just needs a tiny bit of refinement. Worth a buy for the price.
Nothing special until I made mojitos with it at a pool party. Wonderful for rum cocktails. Make yourself popular and throw some mint on this stuff.
One of the best spiced rums
Ok, it's a bit commercial now but this is a great spiced smooth rum. Good aromas. Way too easy drinking! A favourite.
Rare Blend 12-Year
Not for beginners!
Needs to breathe a bit before sipping. Haven't tried it with a mixer but when neat it's quite strong yet complex. Plenty of aroma and flavour, althoug
Good value, better than average
One you can sip neat, mix with cola or stick in a cocktail. Inexpensive, tasty, versatile rum
Just about good enough to drink neat. Very good value when on offer in M&S. Worth a try definitely
Good value sipping rum. Pleasant aroma and flavour, with or without ice. Recommended.
Nice sipping rum, good on the nose and a fair amount of complexity.
Sweet pineapple on the nose, medium bodied vanilla and a touch of caramel and oak on the palate. Unfortunately there's quite a 'fresh' sugar taste, as
1919 Deluxe Aged Blend
Nice to sip, with a touch of vanilla. Not as complex as top end stuff but pleasant enough for me. Didn't try it with a mixer so can't comment too far.
Surprised our Navy is so respected if they got on this before battle. Bugger me, it's lethal. But very tasty. Tried it neat and I admit I'm not man en
Dark n fruity
Rich, dark, fairly smooth. Sweet and fragrant with orange peel. Perhaps the true purists will wonder what 10 years did to it.
Reasonable price, good sipper. Tried it in New York
6.5 on a good day
It's a bit rough and best used with a mixer. Bog standard "rum and coke" type of rum. Gets a 6.5 with this; neat I'd give it 4. Put Pepsi in it. Put s
Put it in cocktails, mix it with cola. Don't bother sipping neat; it's not good enough. Cheap as chips. Grab one for $8 when you're in the Dominican.
Stick it in a mojito. Relax. Good value. Nothing more to add.
Just go for Sailor Jerry
Meh, it's average. You can get better for the money. If it's on offer in the supermarket then go nuts. Inoffensive spiced rum.
Good dark rum
More of a 6.5 to be fair. Good mixer with rich dark flavours and plenty on the nose.
Good for mojitos. Otherwise, use it for cleaning the oven.
Mediocre mixer. Much better Havana rums out there. It's reasonable value for money though.
Bonus point for price
Another supermarket average rum. Nice enough mixed but not ideal neat.
...for a rum n cola. Way too many 6/10 rums out there in the shops. If you want something nice in the UK you either pay top dollar and get ripped off,
Nice with coke
Otherwise don't bother. Slightly higher price for what you get. Better available for 20 quid out there
Not bad stuff. Bit rough to drink neat, nice with a mixer. Can't really give it a 7.
Only for mixing!
Neat: strange, unusual, not sure if the purists would agree. Mixed: very tasty drink. Nice touch with the added ginger. Good value.
Ok, it's fine with a cola. If you're skint you'll order it in a rough boozer. Um...yeah, rum and coke please.
Another pub rum
Stick coke or pepsi in it. Maybe add a bit of lime to disguise how very mediocre it is. Hate yourself in the morning.
Original Spiced Gold
Not bad value
Cheap and cheerful. Don't hit it too hard; your head will hate you.
A million better golden rums out there. Reasonable value.
Mediocre spiced rum
Just remind yourself it's lucky you're not drinking CM white. Life could be worse.
The Duppy Share
The bottle looks fun, with an enticing story on the label but the contents disappoint. The blend just doesn't work. It smells like rum flavour liqueur
It's not rum. It's for drunk chicks to stick in cocktails. If you go on a date and she orders a Bacardi and coke- dump her immediately, get a kebab an
Kids 1st hangover
As coconut flavoured rum goes it's fine, but really it's just pre-pubescent party piss.
It gets a bonus point out of sheer sentiment, being my staple diet as a backpacker many years ago! 17 billion better rums out there.
mix it or regret it
Smells like the fake rum they put in rum n raisin ice cream. Put coke in it or cry.
I worked in a bar once where we threw this everywhere and lit the place up. It was fun. Another time we had a 151 drinking contest and I cheated by fi
This is awful tramp juice. I'd like to kick Captain Morgan in his nuts for making something so poor.
