This is not a rum that makes a bold statement or gives one a hint of any specific flavor or aroma. It is not a sipping rum after a good dinner with good company. I give it a 6 because it's a good every day rum that, for me, mixes well with a Pepsi after a long day at the office.

I'm having trouble finishing off my 1.75L of this stuff. It has a horrible metallic finish and aftertaste even when mixed. Starts good and smooth but what it ends with does not make one want to take another sip.

I bought this rum when I asked for a good sipping rum, the man who usually suggests really good rums told me it was one of his favorites. First reaction when opening the bottle, my roommate could smell it from 6 feet away. It almost reminds me of a weaker Bacardi 151. I would not recommend.

Why they have even made this?!?!? Pass years I have had this feeling that the quality of Appleton has gone down. Even their 12-years old does not taste as it used to.
I was expecting little more when I decided to taste these "relatively new ones" Signature and Estate Reserve Blend. Same crap both of them.

Horrible smell, bad taste, really rough on tongue, also in neck. No specific flavours, no reason to drink.

Given that I enjoy sipping on rum rather than use it for mixing I did not expect this rum to be a winner. Glad I only purchased a 375 ml bottle as this is well below the Appleton Rare Blend 12 year rum which I despised. This is a pretty awful rum on its own.

Great taste smooth but with Carmel taste and a slightly fruity finish but not sweet their are a lot better Rums out their but for the price you can't beat it 1.5 oz and 1 Rock

Our go to rum. Not the best rum out there, but not the worst. Better than Bacardi. The father in-law turned me onto this rum when I started dating his daughter and he always has a couple bottles in the house. I’m not turning down a free drink. Doesn’t need that much coke in the mix, but wouldn’t want to drink it straight.

This rum is unbalanced. Taste is young. Like it has not fully developed.

Smooth, sweet rum where the alcohol doesn't sting as much as it would in spirits. Good as a sipping rum but quite nice with spicier mixers such as ginger beer.

Aroma of the weak kind of Jamaican rum.
Absolutely dry. Severe burning softened by oiliness. The growing bitterness requires mandatory snacks or liquid.
It noise in my head, and my body is warm and relaxing. Large volumes do not affect to the health.

I couldn't place the fresh, crisp flavor behind this rum. I kept wanting to say "apple" but I'm sure that was just the name getting to me. Not bad overall, decent for mixing but not my favorite. Bottle is kinda fun.

Warming and simple to drink over ice. A good standard for any cabinet.

As Appleton recommend, this is not meant to be a sipping rum.

Although drinkable straight don't expect much.

Great with ginger ale and a lime. Best mixed with cola, blends well, very moreish.

Very good in whiskey based cocktails like the classic old fashioned. I hear that it has such a whiskey like taste is because Appleton estate use ex jack Daniels barrels. I personally like to pair this with grapefruit juice. Use this as bait for your whiskey loving friends.

Opět jsem byl podroben slepému testu. Kamarád nakupoval v bezcelní zóně v Egyptě, a tak jsem se zase rád nechal překvapit, co si dovezl.
Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Jamajka
Aroma: První přivonění...že by karibský rum? Voní nějak povědomě. Koženě pomerančové, nasládlé aroma. Postupně se přidává koření, hlavně skořice. Trochu až vánoční nádech, marcipán, karamel. Vůně je OK. (84 b)
Chuť: Oproti vůni je ale v chuti dost suchý. Koření, kůže a pomeranče ale zůstávají. Jen bez sladkosti. Dochuť je pak hřebíčková. (78 b)
Body: 81/100
Shrnutí: Podle vůně povědomé, po ochutnání už si ale jistý nejsem. Každopádně tipuju karibský rum. Přesnou destinaci si ale netroufám hádat. Něco základnějšího, ale může být odkudkoliv.

Smooth, sweet rum where the alcohol doesn't sting as much as it would in spirits. Good as a sipping rum but quite nice with spicier mixers such as ginger beer.

I don't get Appleton's labelling system, they have so many different rums but if this is really their signature blend then they need to sort their shit out. I know it's not their best rum in fact it's close to their worst. Should have called it Appleton Leftovers or something. Very strong alcohol smell.

Sampled the Appleton Estates Signature Blend while escaping the Hurricane Irma to Jamaica during last weekend. This is not a neat sipper. Alcohol smell, taste and burn are just nasty. Mix it with Coke and down it goes, but not as a neat sipper. Go with the Reserve Blend of 12 year old, and you won't be disappointed.

Firts sip was reather poor, but after several minutes it developed interesting taste hard to define reather muddy organic

Ok neat or on the rocks but mixed in coctail and some weird metallic aftertaste happens...

Inte riktigt där för mig, tror denna gör sig bättre dom en blandrom än något fint man dricker efter maten. Lite för skarp och utmärkande spritsmak för mitt tycke.

I shouldn't have read the reviews beforehand because it might have biased me, but this rum is only decent and not super sweet and delicious like my favorite rums

To me it's just ehhh. Not bad but not great. It was good mixed with soda but on the rocks with lime not so good.
