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.
Interestin taste. it's to aditived. Smells to alcohoolic. Vanilla flavor.
Still not one of the best but already one rum with good pure taste. Nevertheless I rather have mixed with coke. Always good to have it in the bar.
Quite special with a tar like nose. It tastes good when mixing it with coke and some ice but not when drinking it neat.
If you tasted "the kraken" then you know a black rum in that price range can be a much smoother experience then this harsh rum. I see people say at least it is enjoyable when mixed...i don't agree it has a extremely dominant taste. Not my cup of tea this one...
I will drink it only in the club and mixed with cola.Nothing special.
Solo para cocinar o cuba libre (cuando no hay otra cosa para beber)
Got this long ago when it 1st came out. Walked in the bottle shop to grab some Beam & they where giving away shots of this as testers, & it was the 1st time I handled a shot straight without choking so ended up walking out with this. Me & a mate nearly finish that bottle the same night & it was the 1st & only time I got smashed. Never again. Power throwing for 6 hours isn't fun. Lol.
Oh & a line from Eminem's song, "Bacardi dark can't hardly talk"! So true!
All up, not a bad drop.
Kann man trinken, muss man aber nicht. Für Mixgetränke noch ok.
Kan næste ikke vente med at smage denne! - Har været på stor indkøb og købt lidt forskelligt :)
Drinkable, but only for mixing.... cuba libre and similar
til drinks og cola er den ok, ellers så ikke:
Sugar: 15 gpl. Another basic bar rum. This rum has a funny smell and my reference point was to the kitchen sink full of soapy water came to mind. It's a mixing rum and if you put in enough juice or mix, you can block out that detergent taste. It's better than the Bacardi white rum, but in retrospect the bonus Air Miles that came with the purchase were not worth it.
Nothing special, another Bacardi commercial product. Pass over
Gambled on this and lost. Unless it's an aquired taste I just burned $25. I had to have a Lemon Hart after just to make sure there wasn't something wrong with the ice or Diet Coke - is it possible to get a duff bottle of rum? After drinking rum for 45 years this was a really nasty surprise. If I'm lucky they'll let me trade this for a bottle of something else at the bar where I work.
I've had this bottle for years and never opened it. It still had the old paper tax label on it. Finally cracked it open. It was a twist off so I wasn't expecting a lot. Has a somewhat strong alcohol smell. Very dark. Decent legs. While it is aged and dark, it is somewhat light on the palate. Not a great rum, but pretty decent for the $15 current store price.
You can't drink this rum straight up, so you have to mix it with cola or something similar. And if you like mixed drinks, there are way better options than this one.
I have not seen rum but I have heard it has been relabeled as the select, so I will rehash my rating from that one. Not a bad tasting rum up front but with a saccharine aftertaste.
always better than normal bacardi...
better as the 'normal' blanco,it's still a strict mixer
Ale určite nie chutný rum. Osobne by som ho najradšej už nikdy nevidel. Žiaľ komercia je komercia.
This is not a sipping rum. I never mixed it as I was disappointed with the taste neat
Ale jo, za svou cenu docela dobrý a lehce pitelný komerční rum. K tomuto rumu ochutnanému na návštěvě mi bohužel chybí podrobnější poznámky. Časem možná napravím.
Puur, met ijs, met cola of in een cocktail, alles kan met deze allrounder. Maar je kan beter de Reserva kiezen.
Not usually a fan of Bacardi rums and didn't even know this existed as I haven't seen this in a UK bar but saw it on a drinks menu in Budapest. I was served on ice and went down very well. We need more of this in the UK!
