Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
At first the scent comes off as if it were going to be harsh, but then you take a sip and you figure out it’s just the strong spices coming out, with a medium caramel. The rum goes down smooth, not what I was expecting. For 20 dollars, it’s definitely better than captain org. and Bacardi spiced.
I love Appleton Signature for tiki drink mixes, this is why I give it an 8...why bother spending more if you are mixing it. Sure you could get a 12 year Appleton and it is great but when the other ingredients blend the tiki Gods are smiling:) Aloha from West Palm Beach Fl!
this brand of rum is a good rum to give friends for their 1st rum tasting
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
This is fantastic stuff. Mixes really well and can be a supper too. Smooth but with character. Not very flammable. Not too sweet. Not too funky. Not too heavy. Great flavor. The average rating here is low in my opinion.
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.
Great entry level rum to the Appleton family ......money well spent ..
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.
Great addition to the list, one more down 49 to go.
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 %
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)
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.
Molto piacevole anche se un po secco da mandare giù ma il profumo è fresco e floreale. Per qualità prezzo il migliore sul mercato. Ci stà!
Read good things about Appleton Estates but this version not as tasty. Need to explore brand further. Need to try again.
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.
Tastse like a high quality rum should taste. I usually only use this rum in cocktails but it's actually ok for sipping. It's not the best but considering value for money I wouldn't mind adding it to my collection
I like. Not my favorite but it was still good. Has a good flavor and aroma to it. I would recommend it for for the price range.
I quite like to have this to hand as a mixing rum. Goes well with Cola and also with Apple juice.
There's just something pleasant about Appletons rums. Nothing harsh or overpowering. Some might say a little boring. I find it a really nice drop mixed or on ice. An everyday mix for an everyday person. Not pricey and still decent enough to look forward too at the end of a hard day.
This is an excellent go-to rum if you're making a lot of drinks at home or commercially. It gives plenty of the Jamaican hogo funkiness called for in many tiki drinks...at a nice price!
Smooth and gentle rum perfect for cocktails. Will blend in without overpowering.
Very smooth...a light charred flavor with sweet fruit..a much better bodied rum than the 12 year old..great sipper or with coke
Nicely balanced well priced rum very enjoyable. Not tried any other Appleton rums to compare, but the best value priced rum I’ve drank to date.
Next stop Appleton aged versions, can’t wait!
Nice fruity maybe too much alc, but good that is dry not some sugar bomb
probably I will give it another shot
This gets a definite not bad from be on the third sip straight up. I’d serve it, maybe sip it, mix it and ship it.
An honest effort and a good deal. However as a top shelfer as in where I’m at says more about the bar than the booze. Tastes kinda like rum. Beginners Xaymacan.
