Recommendable to most
A mild rum from Bacardi (spanish style), the smell is very good, the taste is balanced.
It's filtered through charcoal. I still can perceive some heavy aromas in it, but there are maybe just 20-30% of this heavy rum in the blend.
Still very good for the price of 30€. A work of art, created by three master blenders.
It's much lighter that Bacardi 8, I think it's a little bit too light. I would prefer more intense aromas.
Smell: caramel, some wood, some bacardi molasses (salt/coffee), fruits (candied apple, pineaple, banana), sweet and pleasant
First Taste: caramel, nice and subtle sweetness, some fruits (slightly orange)
Middle taste: burned suggar, oak
Finish: barrel and earth, spice, vanilla, liquorice
Aftertaste: some peppermint and liquorice (it's very subtle)
Value (30.5€): 4/5
Maestros de Ron: Joe Gomez, Troy Arquiza and Manny Oliver
Very good taste, smooth and not too sweet, god value room for sipping, definitely a step up from the 8 years old, worth to pay the premium.
it is first bacardi rum that was tasty for me, much better then 8 yo, but still bacardi is worst rum label ever. However this one will be good for most ppl. Taste is smooth, alcohol isn't present in aroma even in taste. At palette you can feel oak, some chocolate and vanilla, classic sugar cane, a bit of coconut, banana, red fruit. BUT finish is really quick, all taste you can feel only when you drinking, after that taste are disappearing. For me it was a last chance to bacardi.
Not the best sipping rum for sure but is a bit cheaper and is often worth the price. Fairly smooth and definitely a solid step up from the 8 year.
Still a touch sweet, but more well-rounded, bringing some apricot to join the vanilla. The white oak influence is apparent. With a little time and attention I get a bit of banana, but not the pear the bottle notes.
I bought this hoping to get something similar or better thank the 8 years Bacardi, but this one was a disappointment. Strong alcohol taste at the beginning, ruins it for me. I rather have the 8 years for less money.
