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...
Acheter avec la promotion des canadiens nhl. C est fait pour être mélanger avec du coke. Pour ma part, c est un fait pour avoir une gueule de bois et virer une brosse, sans plus.
Lekker stevig maar wel wat zoeter. Is zo te drinken of in mix.
If I had only Bacardis in the bar, I would choose this one. It’s good in the summer time by the pool. They say it is the same as Bacardi Select, but I don’t think so. Lime required or forget it.
un ron que no refleja su calidad.
Sorprendete con un sabor de Bacardi que te confirma su buena calidad con sabores y aromas que enamoran.
Definitely a mixing rum. Tried on own actually smoother than expected. A little sweet smell. Taste isn’t complex as expected thou taste not as bad as I expected from other reviews. Sipping rum it’s not but wouldn’t recommend. You get a licorice type note with a little dryness and some sweet. Ok overall
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
Black colour, taste ok not great. Have to type something hope this is 50 characters
Not a good one not even a good mixer had to drink with coke and it wasn’t pleasant
This really sucks. The taste after you drink it is horrible. I really don't like to drink this one, not even with a coke.
This is rum, that is born for cuba libre.
It means, that if you would not put lime and coke inside, you will not be satisfied.
One of my favourites for Cuba Libre. Mellow and smooth, but still not for sipping.
Tried the Bacardi Black rum at the Bacardi distillery in San Juan last year and it's not a neat sipper at all. Go with the Bacardi Oakheart over this one any day.
With its dark colour I was expecting a more pronounced taste. It smells a bit the oak drum but has a medicine like after taste. It's good for mixing.
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.
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.
