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 8 year old amber rum has a mild scent of whiskey Strong aroma and a little biting on the tongue when sipped. As suggested on the Bacardi website this rum is great in an Old Fashioned. In my opinion it is better when mixed in a cocktail. I never did a direct comparison to other rums on my shelf. When i do I will update this review to confirm where it stands. I feel it falls between an El Dorado 8 and 12 in terms of its taste.
I could not clearly identify flavors . Too alcoholic for me. Extra added sugar.
A bit expensive.
Smooth 8 years rum..better than el dorado 8 imo. On the ice...straight or with coke ....what can i say..it's a good rum
This is a better rum for making drinks like Cuba Libre, but I rate my rums from the straight-up-experience. It's quite plain and bland but worked really good with cola and lime when I tried it.
Un ron que puede ser tomado en las rocas o con poca coca cola
As Bacardi rums go, this is definitely one of the better ones. Pretty good as a sipping rum, but excellent in tiki drinks. Nice!
Nice dark color. Interesting flavor that comes off a bit smoky. As someone who likes a good sweet scotch (Speyside), this was very good.
BEST Bacardi product I've ever tried - a brand known for being ultra-sweet-sweet-sweet, this one has a LOT more character in its taste profile than just tons of overbearing sugar. Smoky oak & spice push through nicely, gently heating up the palate, and a nice finish lingers, with ever-so-slight a burn in the throat, but not so much that it's an unpleasant experience. A quality sipper, much to my surprise and delight!
Mycket prisvärd men ingen smaksensation, Men en ok bruksrom
I keep coming back to this rum. The smoothness is very similar to the Captain Morgan's Private stock; but the taste is better. I just wish it came in a bigger bottle.
This is at the moment my "everyday" rum. It's affordable, easy to find and has a nice taste to it.
Este es el Bacardi que se debe pedir en un restaurante-bar. No tiene cuerpo para tomarse derecho pero esta hecho para mezclarse y cumple con lo esperado. Su sabor toca tonos de madera y vainilla
This is a great entry into the market from Bacardi, smooth yet flavorful. Could be a 9 if it had more depth.
It's OK on the rocks... Not bad not decent depth of flavour
Initially, put off by seeing the Bacardi label, but bought it regardless. It does not have a wild after taste. I sense a bit of the molasses and vanilla. It's ok to sip neat, but I preferred it over rocks with a few drops of mixer. I would buy it again after a rotation of others in that price range of $24 or so.
Quite sweet and very smooth: taste of oak and vanilla
thought it would be better... same Bacardi taste which I never cared for.
Bacardi easily pulls a win with this one. A good sipper to introduce to newbies. Easy to pick up on the dried fruit notes. Overall this is a great rum that won't cost you an arm or even a leg.
I bought a bottle of this and a bottle of Appleton signature blend to break my spiced streak. I was very impressed with bacardi's new bottle design and presentation. The taste was even better! Smoothest rum I've had so far and you can easily pick up on the dried fruit notes. The chances of me picking up another bottle are very high. Great job Bacardi!
Like nearly all the rum of the bahamas , really good and intriguing ! The taste is dry with hints of wood and smoke . Good value for money!
...that belongs in your cabinet, kitchen counter, or wherever you would keep a good rum.
but more of sharing with others than hoarding away for your self only type.
your guest won't fuss nor anger at quality; but won't delight either.
makes great cocktail base, great mixed with cola but why?, tolerable drinking straight at room temp.
not great, but just ordinary good.
Well balanced rum with touch of whiskey.
Aroma of plums, nuts and brown sugar.
Taste is lightly sweet with tones of raspberry, mango and oak.
Is maar een bacardi is al beter dan de rest maar doe er toch maar cola bij dan is hij lekker
This is one of my favorite runs. Perfectly blended and a great every day rum at a decent price. Lots of oak vanilla and a bit of Sherry. Don't use ice with it a small splash of water unlocks its beauty
