This rum really surprised me. I got it as a present for father's day. The first sip I took made me feel like I got the wrong present! But after letting it rest for a while, it really gave me a good good feeling! What a sweet rum with quite some burn.

I tried the Bacardi Facundo Exima side by side with the Bacardi Reserva Limitada. I really struggled to pick a winner.

This has notes of honey, caramel, oak, and some bourbon. This was just a tad sweeter (neither were really that sweet, however). I think they both tasted fairly similar overall (no surprise since both are Bacardi products).

Overall I prefer the taste of this over the Limitada, and this is certainly the better value. But it was close. Shortly after I tried this, I tried the Facundo Exquisito, and I think that's a really nice step up.

I really like this one - had almost no expectations going in, but seriously good.

Nutty nose with woody caramel tones. Initial shock of spice dissipates incredibly quickly to result in a smooth long finish. Almost a poprock feel after a few seconds - quite interesting. Lots of brown sugar comes through - fans of dry whisky rums may think it’s too sweet.

It’s dedinitely strong, sip with some caution. I didn’t find it was better after adding a few drops of water - just go full in neat and enjoy!

I have come to learn that Bacardi actually does make some delicious rums that are made to be sipped. Eximo is most definitely one of those rums. No sweetness at all, dried fruits, a hint of tobacco and lots of depth and character with a pleathora of different flavors. This is a very complex rum and it is overall a very nicely done rum. Goo'oood stuff Maynard! And you better say you like it neat or else you might wanna put on your pantyhose..

Fantastic rum for the price. One of the best rums at the $70 price range. It will not disappoint. It is a little stronger in taste than the Facundo Exquisito which is my number 1 pick by far in rum, however if you let is sit in ice for a few minutes it looses some to its strength. If you like strong rums, this is one of the best at an affordable price. The bottle is beautiful and classy. It make the perfect gift for a good friend.

Do not use for mixed drinks, it is too good for that.

Recently a Family member and I gifted each other rums. We ended up with Bacardi Diez as well as Bacardi Facundo Eximo. I found that the Diez had a bit of burn but was very Tasty whether that was neat, on the rocks or mixed. This Facundo Eximo was smoother but have very slightly less taste although the difference was arguably negligible. This is an excellent rum which i enjoy once or twice a month. This is currently my second bottle and would buy again.

I’m questioning why I purchased this again. Nice bottle and stopper great golden brown color but on the first taste it just leaves me short. It is very smooth almost watered down taste even neat. Funky little aftertaste I can’t place. It’s like why bother at this price level, just move up to Exquisito, or for less Centenario 25, Eldorado 12 or 15, Pampers, many others. Maybe my taste buds are too elevated after sampling several different Foursquare rums recently all 8-9.

Same rum as the old bottle of Bacardi Reserva Limitada (I mean not the black bottle Gran Reserva Limitada). They are very very close, the difference could be a different batch. I can hardly tell the difference.
This story comes to my mind:
They throw the Limitada for 100$ on the market, it doesn't work. They expand the range, reduced the amount per bottle (this makes the price similar) and introduced the cheaper 10 Diez with the more expensive Facundo line.
Facundo line has two other older rums in the price range of € 130 to € 300.

It's a mild pot still rum. It's a mix of the spanish and english style rum.
The taste is intensive and mild, but it has also some dirty pot still aromas.
If you just started with sweet rums, don't try this. I think you need some experience to understand this one.
Got this for 50€, very cheap in Germany. But the reserva limitada is cheaper for 1l, that's why just 9 points.

Smell: caramel, oak, leather, some gum (pot still, dirty)
Taste initial: caramel, molasses
Taste middle: liquorice, gum, peppermint, spice
Finish: warm burn, spice
Aftertaste: peppermint, liquorice, leather

Sweetness: 2/5
Spice: 3/5
Fruit: 1.5/5
Mildness: 4/5
Value (53€ for 0.5l): 2.5/5

A friend brought this over in our ongoing bottle war. Excellent sipping rum, nice flavor and a little bit of sweetness.

Smooth dark rum with a slow, late heat to it. Has a nice deep molasses flavors with a long finish. A tad of spice to it and I think I'm tasting a touch of raisin, but very subtle. Easy to drink and has a nice warming effect. Great for a cool evening. A little high in the current going rate (~$70) in my neighborhood, I'd opt for a bottle of Zafra or Santa Teresa 1796 which are close in qualubut half the price.
