Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Originally named Bacardi Black, this rum is now called Bacardi Select. The recipe is the same, which consists of a blend of aged rums, charcoal-filtered once before resting for at least 4 years in American White Oak.
it is taste like petroleum? awful, thats a joke, im really disappointed and start to thing really bad about other bacardi rums,
Had the misfortune of wasting my money on this stuff. If you want to drink alcoholic charcoal, then this is your lucky day!
Yes, I know that aging liquor in a charred barrel imparts a smoky flavor, but this tastes like they drained the rum, scraped the barrels, and bottled the charred scrapings instead of the rum.
This. Is. Not. Rum. (It's reconstituted soot.)
Stay far away!!
What can I say really; poor flavour profile, mass produced, and lacking any redeemable qualities. I would recommend almost any other dark rum over Bacardi
Bought this at the airport 10 years ago and I liked it
If you didnt know it was Bacardi you would too
Mix away with this one. It is cheap, but honestly there's better for not much more. Harsh, alcoholic.
Tastes like burnt platic. Will not buy again. Big deceptio
Bacardi Cola mit Black war damals etwas Besonderes.
This is not high shelf sipping rum. I put this in a category with "spiced rums". Its not terrible and its not great.....but I'm not sure I'd call it rum so much as a rum drink.
I bought this because I got it on sale for $16.95 for 1.5 litters. The bottle says that it has rums that have been aged from one to 3 years in charred oak barrels. So, I figured that I'd try it, since it is only about 20 cents an ounce. I would have to say that this resembles a bourbon than a rum because of the aging process and charcoal filtering. I would say that it is akin to a shot of Evan Williams, and I did do a shot. It is not great as a sipper, but it is decent as a mixer. I tend to mix dark rums with ginger beers, as opposed to rum and Coke, and in that respect, it wasn't awful for the price. It does have a weird aftertaste that kind of numbs the tongue, but it's not cough medicine bad.
Used to love this rum, when I was in the university, but I can’t stand it anymore...
Ja, nåt drink tillbehör ska man väl ha stående. Ska absolut inte jämföras eller intas som en avec bland annat kvalitativt rom. Helt okej i mixade drinker.
Just no...... I don’t know what happened here, I don’t want to know. Whatever it is, it’s not good.
Bacardi Black is een donkere rum die minimaal 4 jaar gerijpt heeft in verschroeide eikenhouten vaten, door deze manier van rijping krijgt de rum zijn licht rokerige smaak en ontwikkeld hij zijn stevige karakter. Deze door de Maestros de Ron Bacardi zorgvuldig gemengde rum heeft een heerlijke zoete smaak van tropisch fruit, pruim, banaan, boterachtige karamel en vanille. Door zijn robuuste en intense smaak is deze rum uitermate geschikt om gemixt te drinken. Puur vind ik hem niet bijzonder.
Dont waste your money on this thing. Its same trash as Morgan just not with as good PR as Morgan has. Its pretty useless to write anything about taste or smell here. Simple said - its aweful and you should avoid it.
This is, without any doubt, the worst rum I have ever tasted. It might be the worst alcoholic beverage I've ever had, period. DO NOT waste your money on this swill. If you really want to try it, just melt some cherry cough drops in nail polish remover at home and enjoy.
Dark and harsh with a long bitter aftertaste. The safest bottle in my cabinet.
Pedestrian. Just a darker version of the regular bacardi. Needa to be mixed.
Good for coctails but not for fine drinking
Quite brutal backround.
5 shots and you have stomach ache.
Be careful not to dring this one too much.
As soon as this rum came out I have always had in my cabinet. I love the taste of rum and this rum fits it well. Unlike most dark rums the cuffing on this rum is light enough it will not burn your stomach. It has a smooth rich flavor. I judge others against this rum.
All i can say is i have been drinking this for almost 20yrs nothing better. Started as select then renamed to black. The aroma taste is full bodied aged to perfection.
Artificial taste, only for mixing cant drink straight more than 3-5 drops.
Look, we know Bacardi is the “Sam’s Cola” of rum brands but I don’t think it deserves a “1”. If you know what to expect, B Black is a dark not-complex sipping rum that can be enjoyed if you can lower your nose long enough to drink some cheap stuff.
It‘s a good Rum to mix. Unfortunately, you can‘t buy it anymore. It is much bettet then the new carta negra
