Flawed with a glimmer of hope
This rum is easy to forget and never buy again. Definitely not the best sub $20 rum. This is mixer only and a guaranteed hang over. My pallet has gotten much more elevated. Made for young drinkers in my book. Strong alcohol scent and taste.
This rum is at most times $9.99 for a 750ml where I live in CA. It has nice oak notes but a harsh medicine finish. Stop excepting this to be a $40 bottle. It is a great 3rd rum for Tiki drinks and I do not recommended to drink straight. Mix in drinks in small amounts and enjoy the added oak. Too much will overpower
For a mixed drink it works. Would never drink it on its own. I've seen people say it reminds them of band-aids? I didn't get that just burning and some spice. Personally think it's overpriced for how underwhelming it is. Seems like one of the club alchohols people order to sound like they know liquor.
I say astringent. It has a really strange isopropyl taste. But it’s dark so it looks more like cough syrup. Either way it belongs in your medicine cabinet NOT your liquor cabinet.
Honestly Bacardi...what are you doing here? This company has no pride. They’ll bottle anything!
Trying to find rums that are every day negotiable and appealing enough to buy again :
Creosote (banned by US Gov for years) was used to preserve telephone poles from rotting .
Having lived close to creosote plant for years , I know Creosote .
Tar smells better and and is more palatable .
To duplicate Bacardi Black : Simply take a shot of vodka and lick the inside of your chimney flue.
