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.

Szansa kupna dziś opisywane rumu sięgają znikomych - otóż kilka lat temu znikł on z naszego rynku, ale nie zupełnie - zastąpiony został odmianą zwaną "Carta Oro" (Taki napis widnieje również na spodzie frontowej etykiety co możecie zaobserwować na zdjęciu powyżej). Nie mam pojęcia jak bardzo zbliżone są to trunki, ale można ją odnaleźć butelkowaną w dwóch mocach pod tą samą nazwą - 37,5 oraz 40% więc trochę już zgłupiałem... Także wracamy do opisu po prostu Bacardi Gold. Dużym plusem na wstępie jest (była) dostępność tego rumu w butelce 0,5L - dla mnie bomba gdy 0,7L to za dużo. Ogólnie jak to Bacardi ma w naszym kraju świetną dystrybucję, szczególnie tych rumów z początku palety - praktycznie w każdym sklepie lub markecie półki się uginają.

ZAPACH: Melasa, świeże liście tytoniu, świeżo ścięta trawa, morele. Zapach nawet przyjemny, niezbyt intensywny - można śmiało go określić jako delikatny.

SMAK: Jednym słowem: łagodny - alkohol czuć dopiero po przełknięciu. Wyczuwalne migdały, morele, orzech włoski, toffi a na końcu delikatna słodycz oraz aromat waniliowy. Nie jest źle a dodanie lodu podnosi słodycz oraz wanilie.

Ogólnie Bacardi Gold można opisać jako mało intensywny, łagodny, nienachalny. Wyśmienity dla osób początkujących w świecie rumu którym nie straszny jest gryzący alkohol :). Niestety dla oczekujących więcej wspomniana neutralność pozbawia całość charakteru. Do drinków wyśmienity, polecam szczególnie do pina-co-lada - i tyle w temacie.

This is very bad rum for drinking straight. If you're going to drown it in cola or mixers, why not buy a better mixing rum (e.g. something by El Dorado or Flor de Cana or Seale) and watch your drinking life improve. Also, you'll attract better friends.

A step above engine degreaser. Strong alcohol aroma and taste...almost confused it with a whiskey.

I bought this rum before I read all the heinous reviews on this website, which made me worry that I'd made a terrible mistake.

It turns out that, in my opinion, this is a fine rum, great for mixing and not bad for sipping.

It smells of vanilla, clove, and caramel, with only a very sense of alcohol. I almost get a whiff of black cherry as well.

The taste is gently sweet and very spicy. Not much burn, but it does have more bite than similar rums at the same price, although a cube of ice clears that up easily.

The aftertaste is refreshing and has a vanilla and apricot flavor.

I will concede that it lacks the complexities of a good sipping rum, but it isn't unpleasant on its own.

In short, if you had to buy one bottle of cheap rum for both people who like mixing and people who like sipping, it's a decent choice -- especially if you can't find Cruzan 9.

Yes, I have tasted it, but I'm trying to avoid it. There are even worse ones, but hopefully I don't have to taste them.

I didn't like this. A very unimpressive drink. It tastes chemically to me. Give it a miss, it's not for any sort of quality libation!

There's only one way to drink this. What it was made for. Cuba libres. Aka rum and coke. Be sure to add plenty of lime. Don't know why all the bad reviews. It was made for a specific purpose. GAI. (Get after it)

Mixer only as most Bacardi rums are. Mixes easily with cola which masks most flavors

Its better than their white or the oakheart. I bought it to taste it, and that is all I did with it and then put it back on the bottom shelve behind everything.

I never really liked this rum even back in my college party days. The harshness overpowers flavors that are not impressive to begin with. This is what you give to guests you don’t particularly like so as not to waste your good rum.

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.
