Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Average sweetness and quite easy: some smoke smell, some taste of oak, vanilla, caramel
I find cheap bacardi too much sentetic.Still clubbing drink.
But if prefer havana any day.
If there is really nothing else then this.
In the club then i drink it with cola.
Good with coke, don't like it for sipping too much. Nothing special.
For the same price you can also have the el dorado 8 or Havana club especial which are both better.
I drinked this rum as a sipper. Not a bad rum, but absolutely nothing special. A little bit to sharp alcoholic flavour. I think it tastes better with a coke.
with the reserva the Bacardi line is really getting into the deeper vanilla and oak flavours
I use this rum for cooking cakes, like Muffins, Neapolitans Babà and many more...obvious not a sipping rum! Pass over...
The one I purchased (with a €3 discount coupon) was displeasingly bitter to me, although it did have some character indicating it was not the cheapest rum. However, the bitterness seemed excessive to me, even after a couple of minutes of ice melting in it. For about the same price, Havana Club Añejo Especial is a stellar alternative.
Perhaps for people who like bitter apertifs (Campari etc), the virtue of a bitter drink, being it does not interefere so much with food flavours, as rums will often do. Can't see mixing this one, given how strongly bitter it was. Wonder if I had a bottle from an 'off' vat at Bacardi.
Not my type rum . Aroma Vanilla & Oak. This rum is more a wiskey than a rum .
