Recommendable to 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.
This one is exceptional. It's a mixed style: light and heavy.
The taste is intensive, fresh and mild, but it has also some heavy aromas.
If you just started with sweet rums, I think you need some more experience to understand it.
Got this for 45€/l, extreamly cheap in Germany.
This is an old version (launched in 2014 for Travel Retail at 99$). If you see it at this price, buy at least two bottles.
And some interesting fact: this rum is similar to Facundo Eximo.
Smell: caramel, oak, molasses (burned suggar, coffee and salt), some gum, fruits (slightly orange, banana)
Taste initial: caramel, molasses, champignon (from the 1yo)
Taste middle: orange, liquorice, some gum, peppermint, spice
Finish: warm burn, spice
Aftertaste: peppermint, liquorice, medicine
Additional Information (https://www.moodiedavittreport.com/):
"Based on Bacardi’s rarest rums that have been aged in oak barrels for 10 to 16 years resulting in an average of 12, the blend is balanced with a touch of 1yo rum to develop a light freshness on the palate, Bacardi said. Similarly, the Maestro de Ron shapes the flavours of this rum by using a mix of charcoals to give Bacardi Reserva Limitada its balance and smoothness."
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.
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.
