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...
It's fine I guess. Another captain black knockoff, not as good, wouldn't buy again
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!
Good for shots and with coke. ...........................
The 2016 version seems to be a change from blends of the same name in earlier years. The label purports this to be a blend of rums aged 1 to 3 years in heavily charred oak barrels. I'm not sure how Bacardi defines "Black", it looked pretty amber to me and only when I put it side by side with Bacardi Gold could I tell it was a little darker. Tasted straight up, there is an initial aroma of caramel, charcoal and hint of dried fruit. Smooth, sweetish but with hint medicinal after taste. Not a very strong flavour profile, and is best served with coke and lemon slice.
Nice by itself with notes of vanilla, molassas and banana, I also mix it with your darker fruit juices and coconut to really pull the flavors through
Interestin taste. it's to aditived. Smells to alcohoolic. Vanilla flavor.
This is one of the first rums i ever tasted... Enjoyed it a lot aswell... But when you try better rums you see this for what it is :)
OK as mixed with coke... Was ok nice n
And smooth... Do
Different over coke then straight
I give it better than a five, not too sweet, in fact a nice oak flavour, maybe a bit too much of a bourbon like flavor. It's smooth enough to drink on the rocks, but as a black not quite enough molasses notes for my taste. Good looking bottle for the bar, nice looking next to the 151.
What should I say. It is like your first experience in bed. Although you know it could not be great, you will remember it your rest of the life as one of the best experiences.
Here it is the same. I really like it, but it's just because it remembers me of the good old days.
Its an better rum, but stil an cheap rum, and no Real special taste, but still better then ordenery bacardi rum
Just slightly better than its pale brother. Luckily this one has been made since some restaurants only have this and the pale on.
Not bad rum, but as for me this rum is too sweet. But girls like it! :3
Just another bacardi rum, nothing much to it. throw it in a mix and youll be fine.
This is not a real black rum--it's a colored version of Bacardi's White. It's a bit sweeter than the white, which masks some of the alcohol predominance. A very poor rum and a poor value.
Just average rum coloured with caramel, that has not much to offer, but is still good enough for mix drink or cola.
It is the same rum that is named Carta negra (for example on UK market)
Opzich is hij wel oké maar er zit een nasmaak aan die echt heel vreemd is een beetje chemisch ofzo moet te zeggen
