Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is a balanced rum and smooth to drink. But there is nothing that sticks out from a flavour point of view.
Picked a bottle up for half price and even at that I wouldn't buy it again, was quite a harsh taste that even pop couldnt cover up
Finally they did something right, this was wonderful.
So not that I've trIed them all but this one is very nice. When 1st out retailed over $100 and all of a sudden... what $50?!?!? Turns out was overrated. At least that's what I was told. Bottom line, neat or one a single rock....all night long.
Sweet but flat body, but way better than you'd have expected from Bacardi
Smooth molasses, honey and vanilla. Nice finish but forgettable.
Yup, I wouldn’t have thought so either! But this is top notch and worth the premium, so... here we are. Good for sipping neat. Anything else would be wasting it. Not as easy on the nose as others with this high a rating, but tastes and finishes nicely.
A good sipping rum..................................................
The taste is unique, soft in the mouth and empowering flavors. Perfect aging & barrel combination
The regular price for this is $100 but the distributer is giving great pricing to the retail stores. I have only had Bacardi in my youth as a mixing rum. This is is good value for the $50 I paid for it but not $100.
Fantastic nose and flavor, never thought a Bacardi product would be of this quality.
Good Smokey taste, oak raised, good sipping rhum, between the mount gay XO and the plantation XO
Nice golden colour with a nose of banana and dried fruits. Nice taste with vanilla and a touch of oak. Little burn. The bottle is much nicer in Canada (black glass with gold label). Not as good as El Dorado (15 or 21).
Bright golden amber color. Aromas of watermelon candies, lemon verbena, caramel, cream soda, and apricots in syrup with a supple, crisp, fruity sweet medium body and a tingling, easy pineapple confection, banana syrup, and pink peppercorns finish. A sweet and fruity rum that will be a real crowd-pleaser.
Niet te sterk ligt zoet
Mooie rum voor puur
I love this one! Took me a while before i got one but it was worth the wait! Really nice sipping rum! At a decent price for a numbered bottle! Worth the try!
A little pricey but nose gives you nice banana and vanilla aroma. Relatively smooth with a little bit at end. Came off a little dull but overall decent option for a higher end Bacardi offering
Amazingly smooth. Little sweeter than I'd expect, and very tasty. The smoothness is unexpected, the aroma suggests a little more bite. This is a very nice rum.
When you smell it's just a little too much. I've had it multiple times but I just can't get used to that smell
On the nose, instantly you'll know it's a Bacardí. Then...clean, wonderful aroma, spice, lots of cinnamon, dried fruits...coconut, caramel, vanilla, shortbread cookies and subtle oak. Once you take a sip...light, mellow, dry, smooth...cinnamon, vanilla, dried fruits like coconut, plums, apricots, subtle citrus peel like lemon. Salty caramelized nuts like almond, hazelnut...caramel, buttery shortbread cookies. Finish, floral with a hint of brown sugar and light oak. No smoke at all, comparing it to Bacardí 8. This is not a molasses taste rum, very little molasses at the end...if any. Needless to say, neat.
Very nice rum, if you like the cuban rums.
A bit oaky, not too sweet. Pretty decent finish.
All round good rum. Hard to go wrong with this one, although for the price, you could find some other gems.
This ist not the stuff you see in all the cinema advertisments. This is very good and solid stuff. Sweet fruits in the nose. A bit too burning on the tongue, but then there is oak and plum. The same goes for the aftertaste. As it says for 8 points: Recommendable for most.
Tried the Bacardi Reserva Limitada at the Bacardi distillery in San Juan last year and it's very mediocre compared to the hundred or so better aged rums out there on this price range. The flavor is quite mellow with a hint of burn at the end. I have tried well over 200 aged rums over the past 15 years and this Bacardi earns the highest grade at 7.
But that's like saying you prefer to drink name brand bleach instead of no name.
This doesn't hold up against almost anything out there. Minimal body, no mouth feel. I wouldn't feed this to my sink drain.
If a Bacardi can be called good, than this one is. I suppose that when it was still made in Cuba, this would have been their median standard. Not really a sipper for me. A bit flat and lacking in body, but quite drinkable on ice. The best compliment I can give is that it does not taste like a Bacardi.
