A good sipper, liked the packaging
Needs time to breathe. The store clerk told me Bacardi is taking over this company.Packaging is effective and eye catching with the miniature wooden b
Gran Reserva 12-Year
another one to sip
I made a comparison of this with Kirk and Sweeney 12-year-old the other night. Like both the same way. This one might have a few more flavors in the
For $23 it is great. I think that was the price. Regardless, it fantastic to sip with a tumbler full of rocks, and lime.
Kirk and Sweeney
Easy to sip this on the rocks. I give it an 8+. For a while it was available at Costco a pretty good deal at $28. Have to shop elsewhere for it now.
Hard to find better value
A very solid tasting rum. I find I can sip it neat, or on a few rocks. Trying to be consistent with my reviews, I just gaveCruzan a 7; this one gets
In the Chicago area I'm buying this stuff at just over $19 a bottle. I've been sipping it with just a few DROPS of water. For the price I find it an e
I like it, although it may not be best value
A fine rum. I bought it in a great grocery store in Minocqua , Wisconsin. It was about $32. I used it mostly with tonic. It has a ''True" rum taste.
Pineapple Stiggin's Fancy
UNIQUE FLAVOR- Definitely an unusual rum
The pineapple hits you right away, yet after a few sips I wanted more. they are able to pull off a fruity pineapple taste without making it so sweet
5 Star Reserve Especiale 8-Year
Have it on the rocks
Definite quality rum. It's great on the rocks - you can sip it also. i want to buy another bottle; it is a bit pricey coming from Haiti.
A cut above
Strong flavors of a strong blend of rums. Not fruity or vanilla tasting. OK to sip or on rocks. I enjoyed it with a bit of tonic.
My first agricole
I finished this off at Christmas time, and have forgotten most of the critical particulars. It was the first Agricole I have had; so I am not expert o
pretty solid effort for the mass market
Initially, put off by seeing the Bacardi label, but bought it regardless. It does not have a wild after taste. I sense a bit of the molasses and vanil
Black Gold Special Reserve
not a lot of shelf space at the liquor store.
Tried it as an alternative to Myers Dark. I like it. Highly recommend it with a lime and a bit of tonic. Makes a nice cocktail to tote around at a p
I saw it on the shelf for $12. Have mixed it with tonic. I experimented with a few other concoctions including grape juice, bitters, lemon. It make a
The Real McCoy
bourbon taste shows up
When this one is sipped it has a strong whiskey-like initial bite. it has flavor but is a bit harsh. It does open up a bit after a "few".
I was expecting more.
I did not detect all the flavors that the first reviewer ( Mr. Outman) did, however, I do like it. For the money it is not a bargain - upwards of $33
I.m finding this in a different shaped bottle
Just had a couple of neat nips of this. Moderate flavors but goes down well. The bottle I bought is a 7 year anejo especial. It was priced at around
best as mixed
I give it a weak 7 rating. It's quite good in a dark & stormy or with tonic. Its taste is unique, but not totally likeable on its own. I am glad to s
Good value rum
Bought some of this in Florida, and didn't get to finish the bottle. Pretty good value, as it is the least expensive on the Appleton menu. I drank it
Best rum in swizzles
I was introduced to this as it was poured on top of a white rum stone sour cocktail in a round glass with crushed ice.Don't forget to garnish with a c
Good value rum
I put it somewhere between 6 and 7 for a rating. The dark bottle suggests that it will be darker than it actually is. The taste is certainly palatable
Good value/ rum to mix
For me, it's not quite a rum to sip. Maybe more aging than 5 years would improve it. $ 18 at the supermarket.
Ok, good value.
Saw the bottle in a liquor store in Illinois. Bought a smallish bottle for $10. It gave me an opportunity to try it and not regret spending much money
OK, I was expecting more
Somewhat of an ordinary taste. I don't feel its worth the money. The appleton name gives it shelf space, but I preferred El Dorado12( as did a previo
More like a Bourbon
Taste is, of course, personal, and this one didn't suit mine. With all due respects to the other reviewers, I did not like this. I gave it a 5. It's
Thought this was a bargain at the time. You have to mix it - it's not for sipping. Watch out for an awful hangover. I'm biased now against spiced rum
thought I would try it
I've seen this on the shelf at the grocery store liquor department. It was just under $20. Tastewise it doesn't have much - its not harsh. There are
Not for me.
I eventually tried as recommended in a caipiriha as suggested by my daughter in law. If you squeeze a 2 or 3 juicy lime wedges into the bottom of a g
