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
5.5 on my scale, but bottles aren't half full or empty here. First tried in Puerto Rico at the factory. A nice surprise given my past experiences with the brand.
This is exactly the taste that 99% people imagine when you say rum. Then i discavered that rum can taste better than your imagination, but it takes time to enjoy this rum. Not for beginers.
This rum does not taste aged to me, need a lot of adjuncts to make it drinkable would pick Havana 7 over this all day long
First smell is a bit strong on the alcohol, but it goes away pretty quickly. Lots of flavor and super balanced - no one note stands out. It's definitely not plain, there's a lot going on. Very delicious and blends perfectly with Coke Zero.
Widely available around the world, this is a good rum to bank on if uncertain of what else is out there. Initially I drank this straight as my regular rum while keeping the rest of the cabinet untouched but I was probably not given this rum the credit it deserves.
Between this and Appleton's these are about as nice as you want to go for a rum for mixing before doing a bottle a disservice.
This rum surprised me a little bit as I had no expectations for it. It's not special by any degree but it has good flavor. I prefer using it as a mixer.
