Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Soft oak. Honey vanilla, baking spice, tropical fruit, banana. Don't ruin it with water or ice neat all the way. Overall one of my favorites
I bought this on my 18th, and saved it for grad, many months later, and it was amazing, it made my cola taste like Apple Juice, the case it comes in is cool to, it creates the Bacardi Bat.
On a road trip where I found myself at a TGIF Fridays drinking something that I'm not sure was rum (Atlantico) I then wandered into a liquor store and found a bottle of Bacardi Reserve Limited. I'd heard about this but thought you had to go to the tour center or at least Puerto Rico to find it. A land locked, random Midwest liquor store didn't seem like a logical place to find it. And after wrestling with the $125 cost decided I had to find out.
I'm glad I did. I seriously considered giving this my first 10 ever, but settled on a 9. On the plus side, this is without question the smoothest rum you will ever drink. It would be easy to consume all or the better part of a bottle in one sitting but at over $100 a bottle you might not want to do that.
On the other hand it's so smooth that is subtle. The flavors are all mild. There is some fruit (apricot?). I think there is a hint of nutmeg and just a very mild hint of vanilla. I don't know if there is sugar cane, molasses or what but it is just slightly sweet. Here it is perfect, neither to sweet nor too dry.
I think a enjoy the smoothness and the way the flavors blend more than the taste of say the Zacapa 23.
Also price has to be considered. For well above $100, this should be stellar.
I would really like one of the Bacardi experts to tell me what flavors I got right and wrong and explain this nectar to me - or just somebody on the site who knows more.
If you can find it and afford a bottle try it. Oh, and all you Bacardi haters, if you drank this in a blind taste test you'd be out of you mind for it, so just stop.
I visited Bacardi while working in Puerto Rico earlier this year and was amazed that such a product was produced on the island. This is a very rich and smooth sipper tasting of quality that I have not expected to get from a bottle of Bacardi.
I purchased my bottle with my name and year and placed this on my top shelf where it remains unopened for now.
This was my first high end rum and it has set the standard. Still trying to find another one that's close. Anything less than a 9 is due to that persons lack of palate to understand complex flavor. Best neat, but one ice cube with about 2oz serving really brings out sweeter flavors. A MUST try!!!
It was truly something special with its easy, round and mellow tast and exclusivity to purchase only in Puerto Rico. Now i found it at the Airport Munich making it more available but less rare. One of my favourites
I was not very impressed with other Bacardi Products but I had seen great ratings for this product and decided to pick up a bottle while on Puerto Rico. This outstanding rum is masterfully blended and has a smooth, buttery consistency. It finishes very well. The nose is rich with the typical molasses, vanilla, and plantain nose of a fine rum. If you happen to be vacationing in Puerto Rico, you can get a bottle for $75 or less at a Duty Free shop. In the States it will cost you about $110.
I picked this up in the airport for £79.00. At that price I'm still dancing around now. It's smooth, this was not what I was expecting. This is a very good rum, I'm still surprised that it's a Bacardi. I'm off to pour another glass as I'm in shock that something so well can be made by Bacardi!
this is a really nice, blanced rum to be drank neat in my opinion!
I just brought a bottle of this back from New York City. I had tasted it before, but this is the first time that I gave it a serious tasting. It is one my top rums. I love sipping it. It is a huge step up in class from your normal Bacardi products.
Bacardi Reservation Limitada delivers fantastic flavor and aroma. The light golden color is attractive. The swirl leaves noticeable legs on the glass. Vanilla and butterscotch aroma. This rum has the perfect amount of sweetness for me. Butterscotch flavor with a relatively short finish.
I consider myself quite a newbie in this realm, but this Rum is my favorite so far. So so smooth.
What a terrific, bargain purchase! This rum is definitely a great deal at any price below $100.00us. The nose is vanilla, smooth drinking with great after tones of light spice and caramel.
Great rum. Price range is in the higher end. Any price sub 100.00 is great deal. Very drinakable and not anything like the cheap Bacardi. A real rum drinkers rum.
Simplemente espectacular!!! Muy recomendable.
Amazing made into a old fashion hold the cherry
My bottle went down a treat on a Sunday afternoon with some friends
I will buy the next year's release and drink with friends
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.
I was lucky and got this at 1/2 price so I bought two bottles.
Delightful aroma and silky smooth. If I see it again for 1/2 price I will get more.
This is an excellent sipping rum and worth the $100 a bottle. Smells and tastes of caramel, vanilla, and molasses. Very smooth and mellow with medium body. Notes aren't extremely complexe but are well blended.
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.
The taste is unique, soft in the mouth and empowering flavors. Perfect aging & barrel combination
This bottle shows that Bacardi can produce a great rum. Mine was a gift from a family member who visited Puerto Rico. My only regret is that I now only own an empty bottle
Good Smokey taste, oak raised, good sipping rhum, between the mount gay XO and the plantation XO
