Flawed with a glimmer of hope
used to drinking stiff Cuba's.... but one night Cuba's with Negra made me feel week in the knees... soft taste, but strong dip.... great stuff
When Carta Negra first appeared, it seems that they were filling the bottles with the old Bacardi Black - which was Bacardi's only decent affordable rum (great for cocktails and somewhat drinkable straight up). This new generation - whatever they are putting in the bottles now is HORRIBLE! It is one of the worst rums I've ever tasted, and guaranteed to ruin any cocktail. So, good job, Bacardi - now you really are living up to your slogan of "It gets the job done" - because if ALL you care about is getting drunk, then this is the rum-flavored gasoline for you. What a tragedy!
Now we all know bacardi are not renowned for their dark rum collection and it shows with the production of this dark rum.... Not good as a mixer so never going to be excellent on the rocks
While not as good as most sipping rums it doesn't make ya heave at the taste! It's not to sweet( and I don't use sugar for anything, so I'd notice) it's got a hint of vanilla to offset alc. For the price, if you like to sip rum on a daily basis, this will do!
For the price (£16 - £18 or so) this is a lovely rounded rum. Quite full bodied. You can certainly taste the charred barrels its spent some time in.
Nice with coke or the ginger beer that is suggested on the bottle.
But the most surprising for me is the smoothness. This has no age statement, but despite that it is nice enough to enjoy straight, and for the money that is a real bonus.
