I saw this rum on clearance for only $9 US. Not being one to pass up a bargain, I bought it without being able to read the label. Evidently, Bacardi hooked up with the modern Caribbean EDM trio Major Lazer to improve on their godawful Superior rum. Yes they did, but they went way overboard on the oak that dominates the aftertaste. As to why I had never heard of this group, I quit listening to Caribbean music once it became modernized like this.

This rum won't go to waste and would make a fairly good mixer. However, their Mississippi Rum Punch recipe on the back label has me concerned. Pour equal parts of this rum, pineapple juice, and apple juice over ice cubes, then add a few drops of bitters. Apple juice and rum?!!!!!!! Unthinkable! Well, I had to try it. Without a few drops of Angostura Bitters, this would be almost undrinkable. Believe it or not, the pineapple juice dominates this drink, even hiding the excess oak from the rum.

It is safe to say that this rum is the poor man's version of Bacardi Limitada that costs up to 10 times as much. Both rum have similar taste profiles with excessive oak.

A 5.5 on my scale. Generally approach Bacardi with some skepticism. Not as bad straight as I thought it would be. Better mixed. Bacardi keeps adding interesting blends

My wife brought this home, we hadn't heard of it. It looks like a marketing thing with Bacardi and a hip hop DJ (Major Lazer).

I poured it neat and it has a strong, but fruity nose with hints of banana and apricot. It has a rich, but oily, texture with a golden brown color. It warms a little as it goes down, with a little sweetness left behind.

Not a bad sipper for the price, and would mix well. We picked this up for less than $20, and I would put it next to a number of sweeter mid-range rums (like a Zaya).

I was nervous at first since it smelled like rubbing alcohol. The taste was light but really smooth with fruit and vanilla notes. You can sip it but not recommended. Best with a fruit punch or soda. If you are looking for a lot of flavor this isn’t it. Smooth yes, not much character.

Nothing spectacular with this rum. Fine as a mixer! I bought this due to its being a limited edition to add to my collection. Little complexity and subdued flavor lends it to being a staple mixer as is the case with many of Bacardi’s other offerings.

This selection caught my eye first because of the price - $10 for a 750ml bottle. How could I go wrong? It wasn’t in the database, so this my chance to give the first rating! This limited edition dark rum from our friends at Bacardi is a solid offering. Even though it’s only 40% ABV, it tastes stronger. It’s got an initial bite that warms as you swallow. A little caramel, a little vanilla, with a pleasant finish. It doesn’t over power your taste buds, so I have to believe everyone will like it. There is not a lot there, but also nothing to detract. Great for mixing and for guests. At this price I will pick up a few more bottles.
