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.
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!
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.
