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.
This is not a special one or anything like that... hence not the best taste even in cocktails...
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.
Used to love this rum, when I was in the university, but I can’t stand it anymore...
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.
Dont waste your money on this thing. Its same trash as Morgan just not with as good PR as Morgan has. Its pretty useless to write anything about taste or smell here. Simple said - its aweful and you should avoid it.
This is, without any doubt, the worst rum I have ever tasted. It might be the worst alcoholic beverage I've ever had, period. DO NOT waste your money on this swill. If you really want to try it, just melt some cherry cough drops in nail polish remover at home and enjoy.
Dark and harsh with a long bitter aftertaste. The safest bottle in my cabinet.
Pedestrian. Just a darker version of the regular bacardi. Needa to be mixed.
Good for coctails but not for fine drinking
Quite brutal backround.
5 shots and you have stomach ache.
Be careful not to dring this one too much.
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.
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.
Artificial taste, only for mixing cant drink straight more than 3-5 drops.
Look, we know Bacardi is the “Sam’s Cola” of rum brands but I don’t think it deserves a “1”. If you know what to expect, B Black is a dark not-complex sipping rum that can be enjoyed if you can lower your nose long enough to drink some cheap stuff.
It‘s a good Rum to mix. Unfortunately, you can‘t buy it anymore. It is much bettet then the new carta negra
Not as great as the Cruzan Black Strap, but not bad at all. Tastes great in a Pain Killer... My favorite rum mixed drink.
Strong taste that carries well in mixes such as a candid rum and coke
But not to my taste. Definitely not a sipper. It can just about work with coke.
Sampled Bacardi Black and was expecting a barely consumable drink on its own. Not overly sweet it is definitely not a sipping rum but tolerable in a pinch
For me the Bacardi Black has a sharp and strong flavor. This is not a sipping rum. I drink this rum with Sprite Zero and it an alternative if I can not find my rum.
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.
This is a ok everyday “go-to” rum. Better with a mix, though not to shabby soing shots (as ling as its chilled).
Напиток ставший моей первой любовью среди Ромов. Доступный в любом магазине, где есть алкоголь, доступный в любом ночном клубе или ресторане среднего сорта. Я был верен ему долго. Но времена шли и я начал пробовать вещи и по интересней.
На сегодняшний день могутпоставить этому рому 4+.
Крайне сладкий напиток, переизбыток карамели и сахара. (Так и до диабета не далеко...)
Captain Morgan black - 4
Bacardi black - 4,5
Havana Club special añejo - 5
С этой бутылки - Bacardi black началась моя коллекция рома в конце 2011 года...
