Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Bacardi Gold rum is manufactured in Puerto Rico where it is distilled from fermented molasses. It is then filtered through charcoal and aged in charred oak barrels for between 1 and 2 years. Unlike Bacardi Superior, Bacardi Gold is only filtered once.
Bacardi's official logo, a fruit bat, dates to 1862 when founder Don Facundo Bacardi found fruit bats living in rafters of the building he bought to house the distillery. Bats are considered an omen of good luck in Cuba and have emblazoned Bacardi rum bottles ever since.
Flawed with a glimmer of hope
Many of the reviews here seem exaggerated in their dislike of this rum and others like it. They are often funny to read but I take many of them with a grain of salt because they can also be full of similar ideas.
This rum is basic stuff and certainly far from amazing or even “good”; however it’s also perfectly drinkable if there were no other options. Neither the nose or palate show much intensity or complexity. It’s boring more than “bad”.
“Easily consumable in a bind” scores a 5 according to the rating system here. That’s accurate.
There is not much good about this rum. Harsh mouth feel. Taste leaves a lot to be desired. Can be mixed with something strong and you will be alright.
Ok, this has a better taste than the white, but still a strong alcohol taste and hit with a little flavor. I tried it with an orange peel and ice.
