Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
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.
I purchased my bottle last year while visiting the Bacardi factory. This has to be one of the best rum that I have tasted. I doesn't need anything but a single cube of ice.
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.
i've expected not so a good Ron, but this Bacardi is Top.
Can't help it, there is just something in Bacardi which I don't like about. Even this reserva has a strong alcohol taste which is pushing over.
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.
Very Smooth with one ice. I would put it on my top Shelf.
Got a bottle of this a while back as a gift from someone who was at the distilerry. It's good, but at the price point a lot better, smoother and more complex can be had.
One of the nicer Bacardi rums I've tried. Smooth neat, better for me on ice, and nice with mix though losing it's unique flavor versus cheaper rums. Not sure if worth the price but certainly enjoyed.
You are a little bit surprised over Bacardi company thta should have the resourcesto produce the finest Rum or by up from the ones that do so. For the brans calling a product Limitada you should expect extra all fromthis bottle. I would say that 8 year is better for the price.
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!!!
A very impresive rum, a great taste and a nice colour. The aftertaste is short but it's all right. Well, all around, the Bacardi Reserva limitada is a great rum.
It's a decent rum. A little sweet at first, then oaky. Finish has some heat. Nothing memorable or particularly tasty.
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.
I consider myself quite a newbie in this realm, but this Rum is my favorite so far. So so smooth.
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!
We are all looking for our next 9 or 10, but I have to say I think I got a deal too. One of the local stores had this - on sale - so even though I can't give it a higher rating, I still think I scored with a $50 bottle of pretty good stuff!
Sugar: 15 GPL. This is a smooth rum, probably one of the smoothest from Bacardi but that is because it doesn't have any strong flavours. Tasting notes of honey, wood, vanilla and some fruit. In the glass it has the aroma of new leather and honey which seems an odd thing to say but that's what I came to the conclusion of. It goes down really easy and the after burn is very pleasant, but it doesn't last that long. The taste profile is not very complex to say the least as it doesn't wow you. At $120 CDN per bottle this rum is vastly overpriced. To be fair this is the best Bacardi that I have tasted, however I think Bacardi is jumping on the premium rum trend with this blend. I am inclined to think this is a money grab and that the rum in this blend isn't that "Limited".
