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.
I really wanted this to be on my top shelf only to discover it makes a better mixer than a sipper. Not a bad rum for the price, better in a dark and stormy.
Bacardi 8 has a spot on my mixing shelf for now.
Not a bad rum, but for the price there are better aged rum.
that Bacardi can do more than appeal to the masses! A solid sipper or mixing rum
Smooth, smooth, smooth! Very drinkable. Subtle Smoky, woody, spice notes. Not overly sweet with great character and depth. Very enjoyable!
Possibly only Bacardi I can recommend without washing my mouth out with bleach. Quality is lack luster, but that's to be expected. For the price though, many other rums out shine it.
Una gran mezcla creada
Coming from bacardi it's fairly common and good value. Just about drinkable straight but maybe not enough flavour to work well with a mixer.
This is the Bacardi to get if you want to have a great sipping and mixing rum. Forget about the white one called "superior" and buy this one instead.
I give this rum a 7 for sipping straight as it never really gets the the point its making. It has a robust flavor I enjoy straight but it has too much going on at the same time. Don't get me wrong its an excellent straight sipper but not my first choice even at this price point. For a mixer I give it a 10. So an 8.5 overall.
I guess this could be a mixing rum. More fire than flavor and what flavor there was ...was flat.
Needed a better rum in small town liquor store and found this aged Bacardi. I am not too high on Bacardi other than Limon but this was quite good considering the over produced approach. I like with Soda or in a dark & stormy. Decent price as well.
Kan drikkes ren, men har en del mangler, er meget hurtig flad, derfor bedst i drinks, hvor vanille smagen også kommer lidt frem.
Ikke et genkøb
I recently used this as a mixer with ginger ale. It has a nice flavor, mixes well. I did not get a chance to sip it by itself. Could be a go-to mixer for a decent price.
Has gone down in quality in recent years as popularity has forced a little overproduction. Still a great rum on the rocks with leathery feel.
I bought some of this on a fishing trip with a couple friends turned out to be one of my top 10 rums not to strong or light just right for me
Very nice rum and a surprise at how good a sipping rum this is.
I have tasted better stuff that home distillers have made and aged themselves. For 8 years it should be much smother than it is. Not a good value buy.
This rum is easy to find, so that's a big plus, and it's not too bad. Smooth it is not. Perhaps as a mixer.
A good mixer. Ginger Ale and lime is always a refreshing, enjoyable drink. I find Ginger Ale a way better than Coke. Give it a try.
This was my second introduction into aged rum and still a favorite. Great with coke, AMAZING in cocktails, and a the only Bacardi rum I'll drink.
I am not a fan of Bacardi rum. I find it very plain and unimaginative. I was given this bottle and figured it worth a try. The amber colour is nice but it lacks the flavours of other ambers. While it is not bad for a Bacardi offering it is not one for the avid rum taster.
I rather like to mix this rum, although this one you can sip. Actually it's the first valuable Bacardi that you could sip without to puke.
