Flawed with a glimmer of hope
I had a bottle for about 15 years and never opened it. It had an older label than what is available today. I believe the old version had a longer length of aging than the newer version. When I finally tried it, it was quite good. Perhaps I'll try the new version in the future.
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.
Is this not the same one that Emirates serves on its flights? Maybe at 36,000 feet your taste buds go into hibernation as this is not great
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.
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.

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.
