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.
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.
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.
I really can't understand how all these bad reviews are coming about, I'm assuming they're written by novice rum drinkers who choke on anything . The smell of this stuff is not nice but it is very surprisingly tasty . very very easy to drink , good for mixing, even with a high rum to mixer ratio. Very prominent flavours of caramel, oak and fruit. Definately recommend .
Ik vind deze persoonlijk lekker .................,,
Well , I bought a 650 no, just to check on the new Bacardi black, really surprised me? It's so smooth and sweet, drank the entire bottle of rum . Love to buy it again and again, it's black, it's smooth, it's sweet and makes you feel perfect after the entire bottle of rum. Just wants everyone wants, to enjoy and drink, this is the best one
This was my goto in all occasions, I can't find it anymore. I had to switch to Select.
I go to this rum because it has good flavor, no burn, and is not as expensive as other rums similar to it. It's not the top shelf but is way above the bottom!
sometimes i like to have it a bit stronger
I found this to be a very good rum.
Nice by itself with notes of vanilla, molassas and banana, I also mix it with your darker fruit juices and coconut to really pull the flavors through
This is really not terrible IMO. Even neat it has a decent molasses flavor to it, and it goes great with Ginger beer. Glad I gave it a chance.
The drink feels like captain Morgan black with a slight difference in taste when mixed with something. A Bandaid is not what i describe the taste,its more like a sweetened taste combined with cola the harsher black rum goes to the kraken.
In the beginning I didn't like it at all, but after two or three times I started to like this Black. Rating based on mix with a coke.
Not as great as the Cruzan Black Strap, but not bad at all. Tastes great in a Pain Killer... My favorite rum mixed drink.
I'm not sure why all the bad ratings as I find this rum very drinkable. It's smooth but doesn't have the fine flavors and aromas of higher rated runs in my cabinet. This rum is doable and OK on the rocks and I find it excellent as a mixer.
A smooth taste
aroma is amazing ..
A good mixer. Not an all night rum. Nice for a change up.
One of my goto rums
Considering I'm not a Bacardi fan I was really impressed with this dark offering. Great with coke or cocktails.
Ale jo, za svou cenu docela dobrý a lehce pitelný komerční rum. K tomuto rumu ochutnanému na návštěvě mi bohužel chybí podrobnější poznámky. Časem možná napravím.
Bacardi BLACK is a discontinued product that was quite a great value and very good for cocktails. The garbage that they now sell as Carta Negra is good only as paint thinner.
What should I say. It is like your first experience in bed. Although you know it could not be great, you will remember it your rest of the life as one of the best experiences.
Here it is the same. I really like it, but it's just because it remembers me of the good old days.
