Easily consumable in a bind
I had no high expectations and therefore no surprises took place, it is rum that still has to mature for a few years to become excellent.
I bought this in a 3 x 10cl tasting set together with the Reserva Ocho and the Gran Reserva Diez just to check out what Bacardi thinks a sipper is meant to be. It has been 35 years or more since I have had a Bacardi; mixed of course and more for the alcohol than for the taste. It is also at least three decades ago that I mixed drinks so let's see where these rums stand.
The nose is recognizable Bacardi (even after al those years); some sweetness and acidity (berries) and a prominent alcoholic scent. Pretty one dimensional and good nor bad.
On the palate this is very "clean"; most flavours are distilled out so this is just one or two steps away from a vodka. Thin, watery and a tad harsh despite the added sugar. Sour berries, a sharpish alcohol, a bit of vanilla and if you want it really bad you find some leathery notes as well. Finish is super short and here the vanilla becomes a bit more dominant.
Sippable but not a sipper and as a mixer I doubt it offers anything above the cheapest Bacardi offerings. I cannot believe this will convince Bacardi-Coke drinkers to leave their cola out nor will it convince seasoned rum drinkers to return to this for a second time.
Not bad, just very, very boring.
Does not need to be mixed like lots are saying , very similar to Oakheart just a tiny bit not as sharp which is only slightly cheaper,yes i will buy this again and no i dont ruin it will cola. :)
Zapach: Standardowo jak u bacardi - Beczka, karmel, melasa. Zapach nie jest zbyt intensywny ale przyjemny.
Smak: Wyraźna słodycz, wanilia, beczka, melasa, miodek, karmel, skórka cytryny.
Ten rum można już ewidentnie spożywać saute, ale jako mikser jest świetny. Jest zauważalna różnica między gold oraz black - pod względem jakości ale mam wrażenie że sporo osób tego nie odczuje.
Chciałbym pochwalić oprawę graficzną oraz wygląd butelki - oczywiście za marką Bacardi stoi duże zaplecze możliwości, ale ta kolorystyka i estetyka grafiki wyjątkowo mnie urzekła. W stosunku do czarnego bacardi pozbyty jest nut szpitalno-plastikowych.
You can feel its young a rum. Its not that full and rich bacardi 8. Mildy sweet with vanilla light oakiness.
It can be sipped, but recommanded more for mixing.
