Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Yup, still kinda taste like turpentine... I actually poured this one down the skin after two (mixed) drinks because I didn't want to torture myself any further.
When I was younger I enjoyed my rum to much so I quit for about20 years. When I tried this Bacardi 20 years later it is the one that reminded me why I like rum so much. It is a good place to start to see if you have th palet for rum.
Pleasantly surprised with this Bacardi, which I believe is now Bacardi Black. Good nose for a young rum, with strong hints of caramel. I've used it in mixed drinks (mojitos for the most part) and guests liked it. I am getting far better cocktails using Bacardi Select than comparable (or slightly more expensive) rums. If I want to up it a notch then I tend to go with Bacardi 8. I just used my last "Bacardi Select" bottle, re-stocking with the newly branded "Bacardi Black" ... at least that's what I'm finding in my area.
I loved the nutmeg notes in this, but then in the aftertaste, it tasted like some really old time medicine even in a mixed drink that has made me a little shy of using this much. Still, its infinitely better than the bottle of Castillo I tried.
If you had to buy one cheap bacardi bottle, this is the one.
Decent balance, no aftertaste, no burns, tastes of winterfruits with a slight sweetness.
This isn't bad but it wasn't really good either. Having tasted and enjoyed both Bacardi 8 and Oakheart, I expected another pleasing find among Bacardi's upgrades from it's flagship Superior brand. The flavor seemed bland compared to the other two.
This rum has plenty of flavor, but it's not super balanced. I keep thinking that if there was something else, it would be more well rounded. It's sharp, but not too sharp. Notes of dark fruits and raisins.
