Nice step up from the normal Bacardi rums. This one can be sipped and is quite nice. Just not great. A solid every day rum sipped or mixed.

I never tried the earlier version of this. My rating of 7 puts it on par with Diplo Reserva and El Dorado 8 in my ratings, which feels right. In fact I prefer it to the El Dorado for a less extreme oak finish. And it's price is a lot less than the Diplomatico. So it earns a permanent spot on my shelf. I enjoy it as a sipper, and it's bold enough I'm sure it would shine with almost any mixer.

Not much for a rich rum smell, only slight sweetness on the nose. Taste is little to no sweetness, very woody and oak, some slight dried fruit. Drinks almost closer to a whiskey. Finish is very smooth though and is fantastic for sipping. If you are not a fun of overtly sweet rums or syrupy rums, this is a fantastic choice. Great for its price point as well.

Based on people's ratings, I didn't have high hopes, but I think it's pretty not bad. Drinking it right now and it's an easy sipper, pretty smooth, not much burn. Worth a try, depending on how much you pay for it.

I resent the trash that is Bacardi, that said this is closer to tolerable then most of their bilge

I've never been a big Bacardi fan but a friend of mine got a bottle of this so I gave it a try. I drink my rum neat so that is the way I tried this one. It is not the worst I have ever tried, in fact it wasn't that bad. Fairly smooth and not bad taste. I don't know what he paid but there are better choices out there.

Po celou dobu velmi ovocne - ovocna zavarenina, tropicke plody. V chuti na pozadi smetanove kremove a zaroven intenzivne korenite. Korenitost pretrvava az do konce dozvuku. Nijak komplexni, nicmene velmi prijemna zalezitost

Anejo rums are starting to gain a greater level of traction in the marketplace, and Bacardi has come to understand this. The 8 years spent in cask has allowed for a beautiful sipping spirit, as well as serious mixer to develop.
It has a thicker mouthfeel than many other rums, and it may be from added sugar, though nothing is cloying at all with the sweetness. I find much of the flavor to be smooth, and teasing. Molasses, toffee, spices, and pleasant, smokey dark chocolate that opens into a touch more sweetness and nuttiness with water. Coconut water is a real winner for mixing, otherwise its quite nice on its own, or over ice. Picked this bottle up for $18.
