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.
Don't take it seriously. If it is the only rum you have, pour a lot of cola to dampen the taste. That will be drinkable.
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 .
Not a fan don't care yes it's smooth but nothing special.
Had it with coke. Nothing special, wouldn't buy it nowadays. It's an ok rum for students who wants to get drunk and is not picky about taste.
In short the taste isnt, plane almost like the superior but i like that more. Glad i got to taste this without buying the bottle.
I can drink this only with Coke and still there will be better ones...
Like many a bacardi bottle, you can pass this one up.
Very intense flavour of.... YUK, you can't even use it for mixing with coke.
The only bottle i ever bought aged out in my cabinet until now, and every time i dare to unscrew it, a noseful of the scent reminds me of never drinking this again.
Not recommended. Not enough mix to make it taste better.
Není až tak spatny. Ale nejvíce se hodí asi do míchaných koktejlů. Na popíjení v čisté formě jsou jiné rumy.
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.
Bad on its own, medicine flavor. Whoever said bandaid nailed it. It's weird. Bad to the point that cola can't even cover it. It still has a weird aftertaste.
This is not a special one or anything like that... hence not the best taste even in cocktails...
As a broke college student, this is not the worst thing I have had (this is coming from a guy who doesn't mind drinking cheap). It does not taste like a rum at all. It is rum disguised as a whiskey. To me it tastes like a cheap scotch that the makers realized that it tasted like shit so they tried to make it as oaky as possible. But if you were to say, mix it 3:1 Bacardi Black to Amaretto, it might give you a decent godfather, but that means buying amaretto in order to drink it.
Bra att ha i grogg. Definitivt inte för sig själv.
Mixed with Coke and it is okay. Pure is the taste not so okay.
This is undoubtedly the worst rum, I ever had. Its taste was horrible somewhat like paint thinner. I would never dare to touch this horrible thing ever again.
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!
Really not into mixing Rum anymore. Reminds me of spring break fun.
Tried drinking this on the rocks at a wedding recently and just couldn't stomach it. Certainly made me appreciate my rum cabinet at home. Didn't try it in a mixer, but I couldn't recommend this rum to anyone.
Horrible. Could Bicardi have put just an ounce of effort into this?? The official that authorized this release should be fired. Nothing else to say.
Goed om te mixen, net als de Oakheart.
Voor de rest niet echt voor puur drinken
Muy malo, deja un retro gusto amargo. Nada recomendable ni que te lo regalen.
