Es un ron suave, dulce, fácil de mezclar o tomarlo sólo, cuando no te des cuenta te dará una patada y te dejará feliz. Es uno de mis rones favoritos para ir de fiesta o estar con los amigos en la casa. Yo lo mezclo con Coca Cola.

Very good taste, I always have preferred to mix rum with coke, what i like of this is than is not such a waste to be mixed but you can drink alone and is fairy good.

it’s all about managing your expectations. At this price point (approx $35 Canadian) it’s rare to find a Rum that one can sip without grimacing. It competes with the Planation Grand Reserve 5 yr old for a value priced sipping rum and may actually come out ahead although there’s more than a $5 price difference between the two. It’s not as smooth as the higher priced sippers but you can’t expect it to be at this price. What it lacks in refinement is more than compensated for by its complexity and pleasant taste.

Am not the best person to ask for advise when buying rum, but here is one I really enjoy. On its own I had to get used to a rather sweet rum, leaving a tone of caramel on my pallet. Almost too sweet for me.
But with Coke, this one is a joy to drink!
Would definately buy again.

Po celou dobu velmi ovocne - ovocna zavarenina, tropicke plody. V chuti na pozadi smetanove kremove a zaroven intenzivne korenite. Korenitost pretrvava az do konce dozvuku. Nijak komplexni, nicmene velmi prijemna zalezitost

Con mucho caracter, pega fuerte, y se diluye en ciruela, albaricoques y nuez moscada. Termina con reminiscencia a avellana, pistacho...

Has increased in price, but it is a good entry into something better. Bit of a burn that is tolerable. You get wood, fruit and some vanilla aroma with similar taste. Worth trying, but not a go to option.

I remember the Ocho being taste and round in mouth. But I also remember being a bit advanced in my spirit taste by then..if you know what I mean

In the last 5 years in Canada I have noticed the "Bacardi 8" has had its label changed 3 times. The label shown above was on the bottle in Ontario circa 2013. It was a nice oaky rum, the first from Bacardi that I could enjoy straight.

I have found the latest label/version circa 2019 not quite as smooth, but still drinkable. A good inexpensive standard to have on hand for mixing or sipping.
