Bacardi Gold rum

Bacardi Gold

Puerto Rico | Gold

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.

This goes well in cola, and that's it.

But given the choice, it's better than regular Bacardi.

Who hasn't had Bacardi? This is what you find at high-school and college parties, mixed with just about anything you could imagine.
It was made for shooting and mixing, and for mass production and distribution to attack the global market. It has succeeded with flying colors.
Its not bad having a bottle on the shelf. Works in a pinch, though by now, I have so many other options, that I only use this rum for when I want to experiment, as there's no remorse if it fails.

Not a great rum but not awful either. But if coke and it's fine

Nice nose considering it’s a mixer rum and relatively smooth with no real flavor. Again not created for sipper but with coke does balance well. For smoothness with coke good but if your looking for flavor notes from rum it’s lacking.

This is not a sipping rum. The only way to drink it is with Coke or Sprite. I will not go out of my way for the Gold.

Not a sipper. When used with coke makes a decent Cuba Libre.

I pretty much only have my rum with a little coke and sometimes lime. On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being a broke college kid looking for anything cheap, and 10 being a rum snob), I'd have to say I'm a 4 or 5. I definitely appreciate the various flavors of rum and I don't only drink cheap stuff. This rum was okay at first. But the more a drank it, the more it began to have a funky flavor. The only way I can describe it is a chlorine aftertaste.. But it's fine for mixing, I just don't like having more than one in a sitting or it starts tasting funky.

Have trouble even finishing a glass of this stuff. Maybe its ok with coke but not straight up

I like the Bacardi Superior (silver) better in a Cuba Libra (rum & coke with a lime), as it really pops with the lime. If I'm drinking just a rum and coke, however, the gold does add another dimension.

Almost every other rum I have ever had was better than this, including some whites. If you absolutely have no other option, use it as a mixer. Very strongly alcoholic, which is reflected in the taste and the aroma.

You will probably never want to touch it again if you drink it straight.
