Had the misfortune of wasting my money on this stuff. If you want to drink alcoholic charcoal, then this is your lucky day!

Yes, I know that aging liquor in a charred barrel imparts a smoky flavor, but this tastes like they drained the rum, scraped the barrels, and bottled the charred scrapings instead of the rum.
This. Is. Not. Rum. (It's reconstituted soot.)
Stay far away!!

What can I say really; poor flavour profile, mass produced, and lacking any redeemable qualities. I would recommend almost any other dark rum over Bacardi

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

Bacardi Cola mit Black war damals etwas Besonderes.

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...
