I don’t understand why some people are so harsh on this rum. When I read comments containing words like “nose” and “oak and dark chocolate flavors” for describing this rum, I know that person is trying to pose into someone who knows rums, but doesn’t really. Criticizing a 10-14 euro rum for not tasting “special” is like being disappointed cous your Toyota Prius doesn’t keep up with your neighbor’s Porsche.
Also…people that comment that this rum is not a sipper: are you insane, or have you just discovered rum? It’s a cheap mixing rum. You expect to pay 14 euros and get a Diplomatico 1997?
Let’s face it: 99% of the people who drink rum, buy this kind of cheap stuff and mix it up. And this one does the job perfectly. Yes, it doesn’t taste special, distinct. You want special? You want premium? PAY PREMIUM.
People who say this is bad have clearly not tried some of Bacardi’s garbage.
You can find this rum almost everywhere on the island and it is a bargain! Seems, we gringos prefer the Barcelo, whereas the locals prefer Brugal. I would not drink this straight up or just on the rocks. Mixes well with Coke or gingerale.
Set your standards where you like, whino or poor mans special, not that there’s anything wrong with that, but not my choice even on a bad day. But when I was a younger man traveling abroad made a decent rum and coke, except for the hangover the next day.
