Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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 a good rum. Drank it as a sipper and it was ok. Nose: Apple and rasins. Palate: smooth with taste of apple and cinnamon, not to sweet.
One of my favourites!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Very Nice taste and not too strong. Excellent for the less experienced drinkers!
Nothing negative, nothing really special.. for it's price you can get something better.
But not my favorite. It is pretty good if you are just starting out. It is inexpensive for an extra old rum. It would be something I would take to a party and leave it. Keep the good stuff at home. It is one of the better Bacardi’s from their family.
Un buen amigo que siempre nos ayudara a estar contentos por la existencia del ron
I'm not one to buy the expensive stuff, so this one I my current favorite in the under $25 range.
Whenever I need to purchase a general rum I seem to reach for this. Friends who enjoy rum find it flavourful but not overbearing or harsh.
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
Best to use for mixing, but I like it. Rich, smooth, chocolate & caramel in ya face, then soft, smooth & short in the end. Of course there are more interesting & pc ones, but this one is a good standard.
Thought I'd never get a decent sipping bacardi...this one changed everything. Very smooth with strong vanilla notes. Always in my cabinet as a staple.
Παρόλο που είμαι ένας bacardi hater, το να δίνω 7 σε ένα bacardi έχει ιδιαίτερη αξία ....... πληθωρικό , με γεμάτη γεύση , χωρίς ιδιαίτερη πολυπλοκότητα και επίγευση ...... Τίμιο ..... 7+ θα έλεγα .....
Great go to as a sipping rum. Fantastic first Rum for new Rum enthusiasts. Kind of like starting a first time sushi eater on the shrimp or crab, an easy place to start.
Recently tried Bacardi 8. Had high hopes. Could not finish my chilled neat pour. It had a long unbalanced finish.
For me not a sipping rum, but a good choice for mixing. Just 1 point under havana7.
Not special but a decent sipper. I bought a bottle in duty free on the way to Iceland. Sipping it neat after a cold day outside sightseeing was a perfect way to end the day!
This isn't my fave rum but it's a easy mixer and a memory of my first Bacardi black ... Bacardi 8 mixes well and easily shared with friends at a good price . Want or need a bottle for a party you can reach for this one and if you leave it behind it's not going to upset you , smooth with oakiness running through
1 z top mixerov, ale kľudne sa dá vychutnať aj samotný na popíjanie alebo s kúskom ľadu. Je relatívne hladký, voňavý a komplexný s arómou vanilky, sladkého drievka a dubového súdku. Výborne sa hodí do typických rumových koktailov. Pekný stredne dlhý záver.
The rum is smooth with decent creamy sweetness (it is not sweet) followed by light smoke and oak characteristic. I would say it is something you should definitely taste, even it is not something amazing or special, it is just “different” Bacardi, and the word different is very important, because this is the proof that even large distilleries can make great sipping rums.

Sometimes you can find great deals on 1l bottle... Excellent for summer coctail parties. Tastes like a real rum (compared to heaper bacardis) ... but not as good as diplomatico, el dorado ....
This is not a great rum and not a bad rum. It's a good rum. It's smooth and has a strong caramel taste. It's much nicer than pretty much all the Bacardi offerings except for the rare and expensive super aged stuff. Two things that are unique about this rum but not in a good way. One, it is one dimensional, this is strange because of its age, you expect more complexity. Two, it's watery, a bizarre term for a rum but certainly one you will understand if you compare it to a similarly aged rum like El Dorado 8 or a much better Mount Gay XO. Those two I just mentioned is where I would go instead but should you find yourself with a bottle of this, don't despair. It's a good rum.
A bit better than the other, simpler Bacardis, but still most suitable for cocktails
Een van m'n favorieten. zeer lekkere rum, meer van dit!
