Bacardi 8 rum

Bacardi 8

Puerto Rico | Aged

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.

This is exactly the taste that 99% people imagine when you say rum. Then i discavered that rum can taste better than your imagination, but it takes time to enjoy this rum. Not for beginers.

This is a good rum at a great price. Not great as a sipper ,but makes a wonderful rum and coke. This will always have a place in my cabinet.

Il n’est pas complexe en saveur et est assez simple mais n’est pas désagréable à boire. Le nez est très discret, et en bouche c’est un mélange de vanille, noix et figue, sans être trop sucré.
Ce n’est clairement pas un rhum qu’on pourrait qualifier de haut de gamme ni un rhum qui vous surprendra mais c’est un produit au rapport qualité/prix intéressant.

Podle mě to není vůbec špatný rum. Hodně mě překvapil.

Même si la matière première n'est pas terrible, heureusement il reste à bacardi de bons maitre de chais qui connaissent leur boulot et arrivent à faire quelque chose de pas trop mal en 8 ans de temps. Il en résulte un rhum assez équilibré, boisé et doux. La force d'un ron réside malheureusement trop souvent dans un vieillissement de qualité et bien maitrisé plutôt que dans un bon spiritueux de base.

Very nice rum, dark amber color, very sweet aroma. Bacardi 8 is a very smooth and easy drinking rum, great for sipping. For the price point, one of the best bang for the buck rums on the market. Could easily pass for something twice the price. When compared to stable mates like Flor de Cano 7, El Dorado 8, Appleton Reserve Blend and Mount Gay, Bacardi 8 is a better low priced sipper or everyday drink than its competition. Don't be fooled by the "Bacardi" name!!!

Rum has a tangy finish similar to spiced rum - I actually double checked the bottle to make sure that it isn't. Otherwise this would be a better rum.

I have had almost every Bacardi under the sun (my family lives 10 min from factory in PR). This is by far my most used and go-to rum. It is the Swiss Army Knife of rum for me.

Taste great on its own AND it becomes the killer rum if you marry it to Coke. I keep mine in the freezer for the mix...and one room temp for the straight up. Either way, you will not be disappointed.
