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.
I like this in my coke - a lot actually. The taste is good for that mix, but the sharpness of the alcohol is a bit too much for a double or triple in my opinion.
Sharp afterburn, a bitter coffee-chocolate taste or maybe its the added caramel.
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.
Rum for masses - with mixers go fine, though straight is a bit different story..
Ik vind deze persoonlijk lekker .................,,
Bought it on a whim, as there's a first time for everything. I like dark/black rum, so I thought I'd give it a shot. After all, it has that oh-so famous Bacardi name on it, so how bad could it be? Turns out, this stuff is like the McDonald's of the rum world. Cheap, mass-produced...and talk about over-priced! If they didn't have the name brand on the label, this stuff would be on the bottom shelf at the grocery store, next to Myers's. $32 for this stuff is a joke.
Degustace proběhla s Ráďou Hronkem takže zkušenost dobrá. Rum za rozumné peníze, lehce sladký s drsnějším koncem, nikterak zvláštní není ale nezklamal...
use to love this rum with coke and lime but as I grew so did my palate
It's a so so kind for me
imagine taking turpentine and infusing it with chard oaky wood from last nights bon fire.... thats about where your at here. it wants to be a oaked spiced rum but is thin on oak and spice. ok in a mixer.. not a sipper. kinda leaves you wanting to reach for a different rum to make the taste that sits in the back of your throat go away
I despise Bacardí in favour of Havana Club. It's harder with top shelf bottles, but it's easy with basic selection. Overall quality score is better for Havana and the price tag is almost the same. Havana miss the Dark rum and Oro/Gold one, but they are not essential. As I occasionally enjoy Havana 3 Aňos on rock, Bacardí is no go here. Bacardí basics are bit better than Morgan's, but you can get Morgan's with lower price tag and makes it better pick, even though the Bacardí Black has better taste. But not that much.
You can't even make it into Molotov either because it only tastes like gasoline, but not burn like it...
Bacardi used to make a good dark aged rum and they called it "Select". I believe that is now blended into the 8-year, which is really good but more expensive and only available in 750ml. I liked buying the Select in 1.75L but no more. I mention this because I have been told that Black is the same stuff as Select. I'm here to tell you that Bacardi Black is total crap and you couldn't pay me to drink it...
I disagree with many that this is really bad. I like the "pure alcohol" taste with a "spice" flavor. Was on sale and I was on a budget. Ok in a pinch.
It's fine I guess. Another captain black knockoff, not as good, wouldn't buy again
Cough syrup tastes better. If you enjoy this rum there is something seriously wrong with your taste buds.
This is only okay with coke. Not good at all. Not recommended.
Not tooo bad on ice if you don't have anything else - but lacks depth and flavor like the rest of Bacardi's stuff.
Not good straight, but among the better Bardaci 'made for mix" rums. Wouldn't ever taste this straight again. As a straight drink if give this a 2. But mixed it does the job at a very low price.
There is no color, body, or aroma to Bacardi Black. What you do get; a disgustingly pingy gasoline-like taste and absolutely no hints of anything that should belong in a rum. This is worse than doing shots of 5-oclock Vodka years ago. Stay away from this rum unless you are looking to convince someone to quit drinking for good. That is it's only useful purpose.
God mørk Rom til at blande med sodavand og især cola og med isterning til
Comparable with the quality of superior, but not really a fan of black rum.
Taken neat, it's got lovely notes of nail polish, bleach, and petrol, with a nice strong finish of insecticide..
Disgusting stuff!! The worst tasting rubbish I've ever had. Blackbeard would've made a pirate walk the plank for serving this rubbish.
The ONLY use for this substance is as a charcoal starter and that's exactly what I'm going to use it for!
Tastes like nail polish. The only positive to it is giving out free shots just to get rid of it. I would never buy it again.
I thought it was a joke then I realized the bottle read "Rum" on it. Nice try, Bacardi...but, no. This is a total mess.
