Recommendable to most
I am giving this rum a 10 because it has a beautiful character and a wonderful flavor and mouthfeel. For an Agricole 12 year old rum at this price you can't beat it (Don't change that! Don't change that!). In addition, the rum is eco friendly and every aspect of Bacoo from growing the cane to bottling the finished product takes place in the Dominican Republic. I love that. Just discovered Bacoo, and it has instantly become my "house rum". Looking forward to trying the others.
This is becoming my favorite. I like the color in the glass and the aroma. I didn’t find it too sweet, not too much of a burn. I did find the finish and aftertastes making me want more. Pleasantly surprised given the price!
Brought back from a visit back to the U.K as not available here in Oz. Lovely bottle and design, it took my eye. Very dark in the glass , a combination of genuine 12 year ageing in oak barrels and a ton of caramel colouring ! As with most cane juice rums theres not much on the nose.. just caramel and a hint of vanilla. Upon sipping the same two tastes dominate with some spice and wood notes. Very , very easy to drink , either straight , with an ice cube or with a good but small amount of mixer..
Yes its sweet like most spanish type rums but its not too sweet.
Plus a genuine age statement of 12 years makes a nice chance from most Dominican rums with their " Blend of rums from 5 to IOO yrs " bullshit..
Very surprised at how good this is. Mildly complex but not over the top. For the price I thought it would be a cheap and thus sweet selection but it is not.
I'm a sucker for a cool bottle in any case, but this one lives up to its packaging. I picked this one up for around $35 and for that range it's very impressive. Heavy caramel character, maybe a hint of banana, overall a great flavor though not as complex as, say, the Diplomatico Reserva. Very smooth!
Complex nose starts out strong but ends nicely. A bit harsh as a sipped but a great mixer as all the complexity comes out. Very good with cola and nice with citrus. Won't be my go-to but may keep it in my bar for a change.
