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)

Sweetness: 2/5
Spice: 2.5/5
Fruits: 3/5
Mildness: 4/5
Value (30.5€): 4/5

Maestros de Ron: Joe Gomez, Troy Arquiza and Manny Oliver

I'm generally not a huge fan of Bacardi rums, which you'll know if you look at the bottom of my shelf. But I really do like their Gran Reserva Limitada, so I thought I'd try something in the middle. Purchased for only $29.99 at Total Wines & More. This rum really impressed me!

It's smooth for a 40%abv rum, and went down easy. It's a little on the sweet side, but I'm ok with that.

Smells and tastes of molasses, vanilla, oak, and light spice. Simple, but very good.

I usually rate rums about a point below their consensus rating, so me giving this an 8 is a very good complement, especially at this price!

Edit: I finally just tried the Bacardi 8 and agree with two other reviewers that the 8 is slightly better, as it has even less alcohol burn.

Paid $39.99 at a PA store. I have been staying away from the Bacardi rums (with the exception of Facundo Paraiso) but when I saw this new 10 yr old rum, I was intrigued. The bottle states a minimum of 10 yr blends which is a good start. A little light on the first sip, but fairly smooth and complex. A slight lingering burn but not overpowering. Quite nice.

Nice smooth drink with robust flavor of the park aging.

Still on qurantine, still alive.
Trying two not expensive and not too old drinks side by side: Bacardi 10 vs Porteno 8.
Firstly B10. Strange etanol on the nose. Seems does not evaporate in a while. Pretty smooth on the palate, but again the same hint of the alcohol bites and ruins the taste. The aftertaste is the best part of this exercise.
Then there was P8. Light and semi sweet. Again, nothing special in the taste, but it is simply more attractive and fine.
So Bacardi 5.6 - Porteno 6.5

For an aged Bacardi it's not terrible, just not what I was looking for in an aged rum. Slight alcohol nose at the start, sweet flavor and minimal burn, and lingering sweetness with some oak at the end. Try it and see what you think.

I'm surprised this bottle doesn't have a higher score. First sip I kinda held my nose thinking it was gonna be comparable to the bacardi 8 year. This rum is insanely smooth. Really good taste and right after you swallow it it;s gone like it was a sip of water. I can see people not liking this rum for that reason, it doesnt leave a nice big sticky flavorful aftertaste in your mouth, but I wouldnt hold it against it.

Unlike others here, I am a Bacardi fan. Bacardi 8 is what got me started on aged rums. The Gran Reserva Diez is less complex than the 8 year old rum but has much more alcohol burn. It’s smooth enough but not enough to be a sipper. I very good mixer but for the price there are far better values. While Bacardi 8 is a solid rum and the Reserva Limitada is as good a rum as you’ll ever find, this falls short. Save the money and buy the Bacardi 8.

Above Average nothing special, yet not bad. Just somewhere in the middle. Would I buy it again? Maybe, however there are better rums out there for the price. I
