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

Not even for rum and coke, this is harsh low quality rum. The only thing that is aged about this rum is the bottle. So far none of the Bacardis rum i’ve tried arent good and this is no different. Rubbing alcohol with artificial coloring.

Scent of fruit and tobacco. Light taste of citrus and slightly burned rubber. Too light in my taste

I'm surprised to see this rum rated so low. I have really enjoyed it so far. It stands out with a really nice barrel spice, like you find in bourbon and scotch. Yet it is very well balanced not to sweet or spice. Has good complexity and long delicious finish. A real sipper for sure!

Taste 5/10. Strong alchol, heavy strange taste, very little sweetness & some spiciness with wood.

This was my favorite rum for many years so smooth, wonderful aroma, and taste. but I cannot find it anywhere the one they put the 8 label on now is simply Bacardi gold in an 8 bottle.

Nice body, strong enough, but feels like "strong-bitter" at the end. Even though very good rum.

rhum pour faire de bon cocktail, pas vraiment d’intérêt en dégustation

Good taste, not one of my favorites. Still worth trying it!

Dit was een van de eerste oudere rummetjes die ik geprobeerd. Hij is lekker houterig. Niet zoet.
