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.
J'ai toujours pensé que bacardi était une marque faite "pour tout le monde". J'ai été surpris en goutant ce rhum 8 ans ! Je l'ai trouvé excellent, il n'agresse pas la bouche. On sent bien le goût de cêne et de sucre/caramel. Il a une bonne odeur vanillée, mais pas très forte. Ce rhum fait parti de mes préférés pour l'instant.
I always thought that was a mark made bacardi "for everyone." I was surprised while tasting the rum 8 years! I found it excellent, it does not attack the mouth. The oak and sugar/caramel flavor tastes good. It has a good smell of vanilla, but not very strong. This rum is one of my favorite for now.
I find it difficult to like Bacardi, but this one is not bad.
Shines in rum and cokes even against more "well regarded" rums, especially at this price point.
IMO, this is much better the Bacardi Anjeo, it has good flavor, a longer finish, deeper color and richness. A pretty good rum for sipping, it will perk your desire to drink better rums, not a bad thing!
Nice sweet / smooth bacardi, one of my bacardi favourites!
Herkomst: Puerto Rico
Prima rum van Bacardi, zoetig met fruit smaken, hout en vanille heb ik ook kunnen ontdekkken..
Dit is een sipper wat mij betreft, en ben nu ook benieuwd naar de Reserva Limitada.
at least compared to the superior white rum,which is simply horrible
Este ron puede tomarse confiablemente sin que te de daños colaterales como lo hacen sus hermanos de menor edad
This is one of the cleanest rums i have ever tasted.. It´s not thick, not strong, not light and have none special notes.. It´s the most average rum i have ever tried. When i think of rum.. This is probably the taste.. I will not regret this buy..
Ce rhum m'aura surpris. Je ne m'attendais pas à autant de goût, de finesse et de douceur, pour le prix, ça vaut bien le ''diplomatico reserva''.
Who knew Bacardi had a rum like this in their stable? This is a nice versatile rum that mixes well, adds flavor and variety to any cocktail, and is not a bad on the rocks sipper. Well done for what it is supposed to be.

One of my personal favorites. Great for relaxing or hanging with friends.
One of my favorites. Kind of sweet, somewhat syrupy but very enjoyable neat.
Muy buen ron, color ligeramente oscuro. Agradable aroma y suave al gusto pudiendo percibir el ahumado.
Puede beberse con o sin hielos.
Vale la apena.
En rom som kan drikkes rent, men er bedst sammen med is.
Skal næsten bruges til mixede drinks.
a decent sipper. A cheaper alternative to some of the pricier darks.
A good rum for me. I don't mind as an after dinner treat.
Now that I've explored this rum a little more, I bumped my rating one notch. Somewhat sweet, fairly smooth with a moderately rich rum flavor. I rate a rum tasted neat without considering price. If rated solely on the quality for price, I'd give this one 10 stars. It's probably the best value in rum I've found and definitely a keeper. It's one of several I recommend to friends who want to explore rum beyond light Puerto Rican rum and the Captain.
I enjoy the heck out of this! Smooth n flavorful. Excellent price point! Gives the big boys a run for their money...
A quite smooth drink, compared to what you usually can expect from the brand!
Smooth molasses, liquorice, apricot, prune..
Very good rum straight or on the rocks. Highly recommend it for the price (30$ canadian)
This is my favorite rum that is easy to find. Of course there's better gems... but they're usually either harder to find or way more expensive. This, to me, is dollar for dollar the best rum I have had. It's good straight, but also mixes well.
Un bon rhum vieux, moelleux, équilibré ... classique, très abordable.
