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 rum just doesn't grab me. It's OK as a mixer but after trying several others, this lacks the depth of flavor found in other similarly priced gold rums.

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.

N- oak, sugar and cherry.
P- Weak. Also: olive brine.
F- Nope.
This rum is not offensive. I would not call it bad. But I will definitely never need a bottle of it, and may very well never drink it again. Ok, moving on, next thing!

Bacardi and Cap Mor are the most over-hyped brands in the rum world (in my humble opinion). That said, to make an excellent rum cake my wife would only use Bacardi Gold.
