This is genuinely good sipping rum. The sherry finish is very good. One has to wonder why it took them so long. Nice entry, very smooth and a very nice sherry flavor. Good balance. Not a lot of complexity or this would easily score 8. A little thin. Short finish. But all in all a very nice rum, especially for the price.
A standard Bacardi 8 y.o. style bottle with a different red label contains a great rum that is a few shades darker than the standard 8 year. After resting, the nose is rich and barrel forward with just the right amount of Sherry. This rum does not make a good rum and coke like the regular 8 y.o. , the favour is so much better and made for sipping. Only $36 @ LCBO is the same rice as the regular 8 and a great deal.
2-night rum tasting with Falcon91Wolvrn03 continues with a rare Bacardi 8y Sherry Cask Finish. We tried it back-to-back with the Bacardi Gran Reserva 8y. Both bottle and label designs are high end. The Sherry Cask Finish has a surprisingly mild sherry flavor, but it's too sweet for my liking. The Gran Reserva 8y is extremely sweet also, but not as sweet as the Sherry Cask Finish and hence better in my opinion.
