Mix away with this one. It is cheap, but honestly there's better for not much more. Harsh, alcoholic.

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.

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.
