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

Sweetness: 2/5
Spice: 3/5
Fruit: 1.5/5
Mildness: 4/5

Additional Information (
"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."

Little harsh, but once you get into it, its a solid sipper.

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

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.

The taste is unique, soft in the mouth and empowering flavors. Perfect aging & barrel combination
