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

It's a nice mellow golden rum, slightly sweet with a clean finish.

I always like to taste every rum straight because the flavors are there.. So the 8 year Bacardi stands perfect to my mouth.. Not to heavy a little bit complex of caramel ,cinnamon and pepper at the end. Has no duration to the aftertaste so I think that it would be perfect for Mohito and other rum cocktails

an inexpensive rum with some flavor.

Though IMO there are quite a few other rums in the $20-25 price range that are better, such as Pusser's, El Dorado 12 yr, Abuelo 7 yr or Matusalem 15 yr. Widely available and a good go-to.

One thing I feel I should mention - Mojitos should be made with a light rum. This might be good with mint and lime, but it doesn't make a true mojito.

One of my favourite rums, Bacardi 8 tastes great straight, with coke and makes banging Old Fashioneds.
Great entry level rum to convince newbies.

Very smooth with a smokey, almost Scotch-like finish. An excellent sipping rum with good (if not very strong) flavor, and lacking the heavy kick of many aged rums. I'd recommend this as a first step for anyone looking to explore sipping rums. It's an excellent value for the price (I paid $19.99 for 750 mL), one that doesn't make me hate myself if I decide to use it as a mixer.

For the price, it's delicious. Great way to open your eyes and see what sipping rums can be and test them out. Strong molasses flavor, has a auburn color, and a bit sharper than some others that are pricier. But, clearly, that's what you're paying for.

For me this is the best Bacardi product ive tried so far, it has good balance and is still quite light at the same time as having some nice flavours come through with fruit, spices and vanilla, as mentioned makes a decent Mojito!
