The best from all Bacardi line. Good with coke and ice.
I have only heard bad things about Bacardi, but this was suprisingly nice. However, it does not have much depth to it and serves much better in a rum sour than neat.
The initial alcohol aroma and taste is overpowering. As a result I don't find this rum particularly flavourful, but after breathing for a few minutes the hint of caramel lends smoothness to an otherwise harsh spirit. I would not recommend this as a sipping rum, but I would highly recommend it for mixing.
My review is for the new bottling "Carta Ocho", which is the 8-year rum of the new line.
I bought it because i read a very good review on a blog and i am very satisfied by this underestimated rum.
It is a balanced rum that goes well on the rocks, in simple spirit-driven cocktails and is even drinkable neat.
I think that at 20€ (i paid my bottle 16) you will hardly find something better.
Dried fruit, spice, cinnamon, oak and smoke aroma. Taste, smooth and pretty much the same from the nose plus hints of vainilla and caramel with more lingering smoke. A few drops of water makes it sweeter and a bit more spicy. Since, the aroma and the aftertaste are so similar having it neat becomes...kind off.. boring. But makes a great rum for an Old Fashioned cocktail.
Am not the best person to ask for advise when buying rum, but here is one I really enjoy. On its own I had to get used to a rather sweet rum, leaving a tone of caramel on my pallet. Almost too sweet for me.
But with Coke, this one is a joy to drink!
Would definately buy again.
Der Bacardi 8 años Gran Reserva ist ein sehr leckerer Rum in einer stilvollen Flasche und einer edel aussehenden Geschenkdose. Der Geschmack ist süßlich, angenehm und komplex. Im Vergleich zu anderen, günstigeren Rums von Bacardi schon sehr lecker.
Tried the Bacardi 8 Gran Reserva rum at the Bacardi distillery in San Juan last year and it's just ok with a strong burn at the end and the traditional mish-mash flavor profile and very close to the regular Bacardi 8 year old. Surprisedly very sweet for a Bacardi.
This rum surprised me, when after my first bottle ,I noticed that I have not rated it. At $32can this is a smooth sipper, sweet and uncomplicated. I am glad to have sipped my second bottle to realize this is no ordinary Bacardi.

Usually I do not like Bacardi, but that's ok 6 out of 10
I think the difference is that this one is from the Bahamas, while all the others are from Puerto Rico.
A little bit smokey and not too sweet. The taste itself is quite average.
