Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
If your at a wedding or other function and its the only aged rum available then it will do in a mixed drink. As with all of Bacardi's products...its just "okay."
For the same price, you can buy authentic rums from Barbados that taste MUCH better than this mediocre offering. This is no better than the stuff they sell at Trader Joe's. The lack of genuine flavor and the powerful afterburn make this a rum to avoid.
There are better in the $15 price range, such as Ron Barcelo anejo, but this is not bad at all. I find most lower-end Bacardi products nearly undrinkable.
It's first impression it made me was that I was drinking toluene. It is more like a chemical solvent than rum. I do not recommend it at all. A very famous name which makes it equally disappointing.
I tried this first on the rocks and it went down pretty easily. After that I pretty much had it in a lot of mixed drinks. Overall, it went down smoothly and there wasn't any burn afterwards like some liquors have.
Sugar 0-5 GPL.
Well, it's better than the Bacardi white rums, but not for use other than in volume servings of rum with mix. You need to add a lot to a rum and coke as this has a thin taste that fades fast. Nothing special about this rum.
This was the first rum I tried after Captain Morgan when I was younger. Before I was introduced to real Rum I considered this a top drink of caramel Amber. I still find it a great mixer, especially in a Cuba Libre with a slice of lime. You can also sip it on the rocks if you have nothing to mix it with. It’s not Plantation XO or anything but it is decent enough for a basic rum.
I really dont know how is Bacardi making so many "different" rums. I cant see the difference between most of them. One is worse than the other. This tastes so chemical and cheap, that I cant recommend it.
At first taste I was very disappointed. It is not expensive, but it tasted very cheap. Harsh fuel taste right off. The trick that worked for me is shaking the bottle and letting it breath a few times. Big improvement. Now I will say... Oak, honey, flowery, spicey. I made an old fashioned with it and it's pretty good. For the money, and after it breathes and the dragster fuel vapors mellow, it's ok stuff.
Received a bottle as a gift, normally I prefer my rum short poured over rocks with a splash of cola. Wouldn't dream of it with this rum, an ounce to a can keeps the wood finish flavours at bay. Very thin and flavourless with a solvent finish.
In the 80´s & 90´s was a rum that you could find it everywhere. Now, the people prefer other rums.
Its a good rum for the Cubas Libres.
Mix this with Coke and there is a glimmer of hope left, so better yet, go with the Bacardi Oakheart and you will be happier with that decision. Same price, but Oakheart mixes much better with Coke than the Anejo.
I always drink the this either straight or in mixed drinks when in Mexico. Not easy to find in the US. Very flavorful and not harsh .
