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.

Tasty, but not quite great

Der teuerste, den ich aus dem Hause Bacardi probiert habe und auch der erste den man durchaus pur trinken kann. Trotzdem viel Luft nach oben.

interesting thing, have tried a lot of bacardi rum and it is still weak. Much better rums you can get. WE feel a lot oaf alcohol, karmel wit a bit of industrial taste, you can fell easily that two promos are separately. Don't know how they do it but bacardi is still bot good for me.

I live in Puerto Rico now, so I am enjoying working my way through Caribbean Rums one by one. Even though this is officially an eight year-old Rum. But the specs on this one state that eight is the youngest Rum in the bottle. Normal Bacardi leaves me flat (at best). But being that Bacardi is made here in Puerto Rico, I wanted to explore their broader range of Spirits outside the mass market firewater available on the middle shelves of the mainland mega-marts.

What a pleasant surprise! Excellent body, good legs, drops cling like gems to the side of the glass. Full of vanilla, orange zest, and toffee notes along with a hint of pineapple and toasted oak. The high rating is a function of quality AND of value. I paid about US $25 and would have paid above $30 (shhhhh ... don't tell them).

Dont buy it, a commerce product with an 8 logo. No flavour, only alcohol smell. Pyrat is better in this price range.

Relatively well balanced, nice smokey aroma, no after burn, not sweet. Bacardi 8 surpises.

Pre mňa bol tento rum naozaj úvod do sveta lepších rumov. Ide o mierne ostrejší rum,no s peknym dúhovým charakterom. Vhodný samotný i s ľadom,prípadne k cigare. Pre ľudí ,ktorí s rumami začínajú a nechcú sa hneď na začiatok "presadiť" odporúčam.

Buen ron, buen precio, en duda para tomarlo solo. Muy bueno para mezclas.
