Bacardi 8-Year is a blended rum, filtered using the Bacardi-pioneered charcoal filtering system and aged for eight years.
This rum was not released to the public until 1995, when the first limited edition Bacardi 8 was sold with a sherry oak finish in a Baccarat crystal decanter. Despite a price tag of $400 per bottle, the rum was hugely popular and led to the larger release of the blend without the collectors' features and price.
Tasty, but not quite great
My real rating is a 9 but I gave a 10 to try and raise this up from the current 6.9. This is a wonderful rum. Smooth and flavorful. Truly one to sip and savor. 8 year is the minimal age mind you. Some barrels in the mix are longer plus that hot Caribbean sun works magic. You can taste it in the glass
Versatile rum with vanilla and caramel notes with hints of smoke and coffee. I drink it neat with ice but also mixes well with coke, defintely brings out the vanilla if youre into that. All the haters here just hate bacardi and fail at being impartial.
Deserves a better rating than its receiving. My favorite sipping rum. Doesn't have the notes of molasses - which makes other rums too sweet. Just great to GAI. (Get after it).
This is one of my favorite runs. Perfectly blended and a great every day rum at a decent price. Lots of oak vanilla and a bit of Sherry. Don't use ice with it a small splash of water unlocks its beauty
I will never be a connoisseur but I do enjoy aged rum regularly. I have several bottles a double the price and do not find them better for my taste. I do like experimenting and in this price range I feel there is none better. However there are many more out there yet to be tried. I don't think you'll go wrong with Bacardi 8.
This was an early rating. I've now added a few more bottles and it still is my favorite. I'm upping the rating to a 10 until something I like better come along
This was my favorite rum for many years so smooth, wonderful aroma, and taste. but I cannot find it anywhere the one they put the 8 label on now is simply Bacardi gold in an 8 bottle.
