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.
I will probably take heat over this review but for some reason I have never warmed up to Bacardi rum. It is consistent in its taste but it just is not my go to rum at all. Their pricing is good but for me the taste is less than desirable.
For mixing only. And there are better out there at the same price, though cheap as it is.
This smells like the bathroom in a sorority house during a basic white girl party. It does have slightly more flavor than a basic white girl but it will singe your nose hair as it hits your palette. Mix it in a Mai Tai with something else for God's sake.
ok to mix
wouldnt be rushing out to buy it again
Harsh rum that is angry at you for drinking it and wants to punish you as much as possible! Definitely a mix-in kind of rum. Not for sophisticated palettes. Flavor is ok, but reminds me of axle grease or something - weird undertones of something like grease or tar. Hints of vanilla and carmel, but a huge flavor of oak and that other thing.
This is really dangerous type of alkochol. Karmelaized. It is like sugar liquor. Don't even try it. Also CM gold version is deadly as this.
A little bit of harsh nose. Alcohol forward at first with a little burn, no unpleasant but it mixes well in Tiki drinks.
Much milder than Bacardi's white ones, few aromes. Good for mixing, don't sip it.
Bacardi Gold is the cheap rum students use to spike rum & coke. It has very little character or subtlety. For the tiny price difference, I'd much rather go with something along the lines of Appleton V/X.
Solo para tragos donde el ron no sea el sabor principal. Piña colada, coco loco, mojito ok. Cuba libre, no tanto. Y con agua jamás...
This is remarkably tasteless. I don't know how they get away with calling this rum.
Wenn man schon mal Black getrunken hat, braucht man Gold auch nicht mehr probieren.
Don't remember how much i payed but i am sure i could get something cheaper and better.
You'll be good as long as you mix it. Fun to try this one instead of more cliche rums.
Bacardi gold Works great and drinks and a combination of other rooms.
This rum just reinforced me in dislike for this brand - plain taste and harsh alco...
Only a mixer for me. Would never consider drinking this neat or on ice.
This should be illegal to drink in most countries, states and provinces....
Not much to really say about this one other than had it a time or two or a bazillion.
Suitable rum for drinks..with cola and ice, maybe ?
For a bacardi rum this one is not the worst. Therefore my rating of 5. Only good with coke.
Warning: I didn't try this rum straight.
I bought this bottle just once when I was desperate for something to mix with Coke in my Las Vegas hotel room to save money before going out. That is the only context in which I tried it.
I thought it was surprisingly good, probably better than any rum and Coke I have been served at a bar. I can't comment on the flavor profiles besides the hint of wood/age I detected, but if you're going to waste rum by dumping it in Coke (without even a lime), I think this is a good bet. However, I would never dream of drinking it straight or using it in any sort of tiki drink.
za rum kolu dobar ali ne pretjerano, standardni alkoholni okus, bez puno arome
Available in 375ml so when I have people over who never bring anything this is what hey get. Very affordable and not too bad as a mixer. I'll drink with juice. Or for a flashback, Hawaiian Punch.
