Although I have always loved Rum as a mix I am new to tasting neat as I have with Scotch. That being the case Bacardi seemed a fair place to start by just increasing the age and price point. As such, I don't have much to compare to right now so have started at mid point of existing reviews and will adjust as I go. As it stands though it is an easy drink and not rough at all so an auspicious start.
Smooth rum with nice aroma. Comparing to Havana Club 7 years, Havana Club is stronger on taste and smoky, I prefer it more, but for the others Bacardi could be better rum.
The moments i had drinking this rum during an exchange student program gave me shivers everytime i like at the bottle and for that it won my respect and admiration, i prefer to mix it in a cocktail making it more enjoyable. I am always in a good mood when i drink it ( maybe i know why) and when i found this bottle in a bar, i dont think twice.
Dark to golden brown colour. Nosing reveals fresh notes of sweetness, vanilla and light milk chocolate married with a touch of tobacco.
Sipped, this rums shows still real sweetness but its more of a young alcohol hit, rather than as a result of excessive dosage. You will also find oak, vanilla, brown sugar and spiciness on the delivery.
These also dominate the extended finish. There are reports that this is a sugar added rum.
