Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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!
This is a great sipping rum. Its a mild color with mild flavor, not very overpowering in anyway which I think is the beauty of the rum. I really can't compare it to any other rum I have drink thus far so it's in a class of it's own. Price point was a little high but was worth buying. Enjoy!!!
Dans la pure tradition des rhums Cubains ( ben oui je sais, je sais... Allez lire un peu sur l'histoire de la maison avant de me traiter d'inculte ) cette bouteille n'est pas sans intérêt.
Tranchant, sec sur des notes de miel, petit fruits, noix et un petit chênes subtil, ce rhum est un produit qui a visiblement jouit d'un grand travail de recherche avant la commersialisation!
Produit honnête, parcontre un peu cher pour ce qu'il a à offrir.
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.
Considering price, this rum is only slightly better than the 8 yr. Had this after Barrilito 3 Estrellas and I just stared at my glass wondering if I really just had a top shelf rum. It's all around average to boring. Nothing of it seems worth the price.
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.
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.
