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.
There are better in the price range. I got an unpleasant tar taste.
Much nicer than Bacardi's other runs. Drinkable straight. In fact I bet if this wasn't labelled Bacardi it would get a higher rating. It is good for the price. Nothing very special about it. But a fairly good rum at a low price. I would rather mix it than drink straight.
Some unpleasant flavour and nothing special at all. There are much better competitors even for better price (e.g. Barcelo Imperial)
I was delighted to find that this was a good sipping Rum from Bacardi. The majority of their Rum I find are only good in cocktails but this can easily be enjoyed straight.
A little bit to little sweetness to me, but great subtle smoky, woody, spice notes. With good character and depth. Very enjoyable!
En premier au nez fort caramelisé, par contre au niveaux le caramel n'est pas présent mais fait place à un bon goût boisé et chaud, à conseiller dans le bar
Goes great with ice, Coke, and a lime. Very good for the price.
Good quality for the price. Not as good as others I have tried in higher price range.
Not quite an 8, but a very solid (and respectable) 7.
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.
