I'm by no means a rum expert or even a liquor one. But I am a big drinker of bottom shelf stuff- it's what I was raised on. For the price this is the best you're gonna get. Castillo is a subsidiary of Barcardi and it's pretty good stuff. No complaints to be had. If you're mixing it's a great choice maybe my taste palate isn't refined but it tastes fine to me straight too.
I think this one is more of a mixer than a sipper. Tried it on ice, then on Coke Zero. Much better.
This rum got me through our teens. It was cheaper than Bacardi and a bit better. Thanks to ABC for turning us on to it when we were poor and 18-19. Many Cuba Libras, but I’m sure I would have a hard time choking one done with my more refined pallet 53 years later.
Nice golden color and smells ok but.. Taste is pure alcohol with a chemical flavor. Tried it with Coke but the chemical flavor remained and was barely drinkable. Then i tryed it with pineapple juice and it tasted fine, the nasty flavor was gone. Needs a mixer that can conceal that bad flavor.
Needs a chaser or something to mix for pleasantness but shots are ok, $9 a LITER for this and I like it better than regular Bacardi. If you don't have extra bucks to buy like Kraken or Blackheart definitely get this!! ! ! !!!! Be careful about chugging it straight and try to enjoy it with something. STRONG alcohol and will get you destroyed if guzzling it down quick. BE SAFE MY FRIENDS.
Bought a bottle of Castillo Gold. Cheap bottle and label design. Cheap at $8 per bottle. Pale golden color. Nasty oak and pure alcohol to the nose and palate. Strong burn at the end. Does not even mix well.
This rum is a good $5 cheaper than anything else at my local store. It mixes well especially with Coke which is my favorite. Definitely recommend.
Very much like Bacardi gold, to my taste. Tried them side-by-side and couldn't tell the difference. Not surprising, considering Bacardi owns them from what I've heard. Not fantastic, but not horrible, either. Good for mixing, and was finding it for $4 a bottle for awhile!
Not as bad as some other cheapies. But I say it's around the same range as canada house, flavor wise. Doesn't taste very "rum" like. But it's not terrible.

Bacardi Gold run-off 3 out of 10
I'm shocked that this (and Bacardi) are rated below Castillo Silver (which, I read reviews defending it.) The fact is, they're basically all the same crap. Castillo is leftover Bacardi and Gold is just Silver with caramel added. Anyway you slice it, it's all pretty mediocre. As with Bacardi, the caramel helps to tone down the kerosene aspect but not enough to qualify it as good. There's better rum in the world people...
