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 one is tasty enough to be used for cocktail (like cuba libre) but on its own this is not enough to spend time and money.

This rum is simply not good. I imagine it’s made for homeless and alcoholics.

"Although I've gotten somewhat used to the burning sensation and distinct vodka-esque gasoline taste in rum and cokes everywhere that better rums are simply unavailable, I have to place this one at the very bottom of my list. It's like a bad lover that you keep going back to because there just isn't anyone else around- better than nothing, familiar, but it leaves a bad aftertaste. Gold is only marginally better." Well this is the gold. I drank it in high school with red bull and would like to keep those bad memories in the past.

Harsh and one-dimensional; not for drinking straight yet more expensive than other adequate mixer level rums.

Do yourself a favor... don't buy this. Get kraken... get MALIBU for all I care

There are so many better sipping and mixing rums. This is their gold. This is flat notes with a little aroma. Buy Plantation 25th anniversary. Forget about cost. Mix or sip The aroma alone is worth it. Life is short.

I picked this up by mistake. I like spiced rums. Oh God. I needed to put the first shot down the sink. After a second try in earnest, sent that down the drain too. Tastes like something filtered through a used sock (as far as I imagine since i've really never tasted liquid squeezed from a sock). Anybody want the rest of the bottle? ...oh god.

Obly tastes of alcohol. None of the tastes as advertised.

Terrible product, this was one of the first rums I had and it made a terrible first impression of what rum was. The only way I could drink it was cutting it with cola which was also not good. Stay away!

Smooth and enjoyable, great value for the price. Perfect with Coke, not to my flavor mixed with citrus.

Base line for easy mixes but too harsh on its own.
