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

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

Tastes good mixed with your favourite drink. Would try again.

I held off on trying for a long time this because I simply didn't expect to like it much. But I was rather surprised by the Bacardi Diez (10 year), so I thought I'd give this one a try. I like this even better (as do several other reviewers, interestingly enough) as it's even smoother!

A very smooth rum for the price ($21.99 at Total Wines & More, 2018). And it's rather tasty too. Like the Diez, this smells and tastes of molasses, vanilla, oak, and light spice. But it goes down even easier. This a fabulous rum for the money!

I think other reviewers might be subconsciously biased against the brand and/or low price.

If there is nothing else around, this might do. After taste is very weak, and not much really going on.

This rum does not disappoint. It is of premium quality and no bad headache the next day like other liquors.

I wasn’t sure about this rum as a supper to start with but it has grown on me and now I really enjoy it. It is smooth and not too strong.
Great value for money which makes mixing it less painful.

This right here, is my favorite rum. It's easy to find, reasonably priced and the taste, the taste is soft, pleasant enough to drink straight, with ice. I don't do cocktails, but it probably mixes nicely as well.

I enjoy sipping the Bacardi 8 with a block of ice. It is smooth rum with a hint of smokiness.

This is a great rum mixer for the money. We enjoy it with Coca-cola plus lime and ice. Cuba Libre! Salud!
