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.
If you like Pampero Aniversario, you will love this one. A suggestion for a blind test. Pour Pampero Aniversario into one glass and Bacoo 12 year old into the other glass. You will not be able to distinguish which is which. Very smooth flavor, caramel and vanilla on the nose and hardly any burn. Spectacular value on top of a great flavor profile.
I bought this because I had never seen it and it was affordable. What a happy accident! This is a delicious dark caramel rum. I tend to drink mine straight so I don’t have any mixing recommendations for it. I drink it room temperature and straight up. I really can’t believe the flavor for the price. A superior Rum for my taste. Good vanilla and hints of spice.
A mysterious new rum from the Dominican Republic. For a new brand on the market this one is my pick for Rookie of the Year. At less than $30 for a bottle it is a bargain. It comes in 5, 8, and 12 Year old versions in a stylish bottle. The version I tried was the 12 Year old and it's very good. Nice blend of vanilla, caramel, oak and traces of spice from aging in bourbon barrels. Sweet and smooth. Estimated sugar is 20 GPL. I found it to be an excellent sipping rum but it didn't last long as friends scooped it up for mixed drinks.
Try it, you won't be disappointed.
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!
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!
