Being a "beverage nerd," a wannabe "rum aficionado" and a huge Bacardi fan (because of their history), I purchased all four of the Bacardi Facundo releases (Neo, Eximo, Exquisito & Paraiso). I mean, who knows rum like the Bacardi Family? When I read the story behind this release, I saved up the "dough" and purchased online. This rum is exceptional, the "best of the best" in my amateur opinion. I shared my Paraiso with a neighbor for a celebratory toast and everyone was VERY pleased. I give it a "9.9"...

It's smooth enough, but still a little heat. It's a good rum, but it's forgettable. My bottle will be brought out when I want to make someone feel special who doesn't know all that much about rum. At this price point, I can't really recommend it, but I don't want to trash it either.

Out of all the rums i have purchased, this is the smoothest by far. On the nose it is light and not overpowering. Dry fruits, hint of vanilla. On the tongue it is very Balanced, no burn whatso ever, the least i would expect. Bottle 330/2000. Great looking bottle, my biggest disappointment would be the finish which is my favorite part of rum tasting and that is the finish dies off very shortly after the swallow with very little linger which to be honest is a bit disappointing. Is it worth the money..... Nah if I had it to do again I would have to pass.

This was a Christmas gift from my wife (do I have a great wife or what?!?) I was super excited to try this, as I really enjoyed the Facundo Exquisito, this is my 100th RumRatings review, and I am the first reviewer of this! This didn't let me down.

Bottle 820 of 2000. Has notes of caramel, sherry, sugar cookie, marzipan, oak, and a wonderful spice. This is absolutely smooth as silk. Hints of sweetness, but not too sweet.

I generally like sweeter rums such as the Diplomatico 2000 (which I slightly prefer to this). But this is a fabulous rum. Right at the top of the '9' scale!

A great rum, but overpriced for its quality- ron millionario is way better in my pov

Bottle 65/2000. This was purchased for me by my wife to celebrate our 35th anniversary, so I had to dedicate a special time to open. We had our family over and thought it was a great opportunity to share. I was once a Bacardi snob and thought nothing could be better than PR rum, but then once I tried other brands I realized PR didn't have anything on Barbados and the other islands. Surprisingly this rum is a product of Barbados! It is silky smooth and very enjoyable. Delightful nose, not too sweet, slight fruitiness (cherries?) and very smooth finish. Is is worth $300? Probably not. Due to price I am going to savor every drop of this beautiful bottle and keep it in its display box.

Really great sipper. It was very smooth, complex, round...nice caramel notes, but not as impactful a some others, especially at this price. The alcohol aroma hit me harder than expected in the beginning, but I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't come through in the taste or finish. I enjoyed the complexity given by the cognac cask finish. Of course this comes in a gorgeous bottle and packaging.

This is a must have if can find it. You will love the taste and finish.

Nice aroma. Smooth and delicate. Hint of dry fruits without being too sweet. It’s bottle and leather box beautifully done.

Paraiso je blendem nejlepších a nejzajímavějších rumů Bacardi, které společně zrály 23 let ve francouzských sudech po extra starém koňaku.

Aroma: Starý dřevěný nábytek, leštěnka, vlhké dřevo, bezový květ, kokos, karamel
Chuť: Bonbóny, sušené ovoce
Dozvuk:Opět bonbónová sladkost, fíky. Velmi krátký!
Sladkost: 3/3
Vzorek #18 z RumFest Praha 2021
Porovnání s Exquisito: Voní opět nádherně, v chuti a dozvuku je však o dost plytčí a také sladší. Označení "nejlepší od Bacardi" a následná cena je snad špatný vtip. Podprůměr.
Hodnocení celé série Facundo: 1. Exquisito 7/10
2. Paraiso 5/10
3. Eximo 5/10
4. Neo 3/10

Great taste, cannot deny that. Expensive as well, can’t deny that either. But the taste is very smooth. The nose is not too much, it maybe lacks a bit of power. But the taste is very smooth. No afterburner that’s bothering in any way. Tones of chocolate and leather. Tasted it with a Diplomatico ambassador and Cubay XO on the side and this one came out on top!
