Enjoyed three glasses of Bacardi Spiced on the last day of 2020. Decent bottle and label design but nothing fancy. Reddish golden color. Strong vanilla ja spicy mixture to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Very sweet vanilla laced ending. Garbage rum like the entire 2020 was.
This "spiced" rum has a very strong earthy flavor. It's like good garden humus or mushrooms, or a damp, moldy cargo hold (me hearties). The earthiness kinda fades to butterscotch.
Keep the soil in the garden and keep this rum out of your cabinet. So many superior rums out there.
This trash is enough to turn anyone off of a rum.
Simple, harsh, and unrefined garbage with some basic spices sprinkled on top.
Bacardi earns its reputation for making bad rums here.
Got to say I’m not to enamoured with this. For me it doesn’t differ from any of the other spiced rums of this ilk and in this price bracket. In fact there are a few spiced rums that are cheaper than this Bacardi and are actually better tasting, Alfred Lamb’s, being one of them. This Bacardi Spiced Rum has the pleasing smell from the vanilla and when drank neat, the mouth is instantly bombarded by the sweet spice. But that’s where the feel good factor comes to an abrupt end. For me, this rum has way to much of a scorching alcohol after burn, as if it’s laden with far to many additives. Never a good thing, especially as nowadays us consumers are literally spoilt for choice, when shopping for a rum, whether it be flavoured or spiced. Having said all that, I do have to concede that this rum is quite decent once turned in to a long drink with Coca-Cola as the mixer. It becomes much more palatable, because the coke has the desired effect of neutralising the majority of the gruff after burn. Plus, this rum is great to use in cocktails. I created the JIM SPARROW cocktail (in the pic above) where the Bacardi rum mixes brilliantly with the JimBeam and Archers Peach Schnapps. To summarise this Barcadi Spiced Rum is ok, but with some much choice, currently on the market, just being Ok, is no longer good enough. Who remembers Nokia phones? Exactly!
