Paid $39.99 at a PA store. I have been staying away from the Bacardi rums (with the exception of Facundo Paraiso) but when I saw this new 10 yr old rum, I was intrigued. The bottle states a minimum of 10 yr blends which is a good start. A little light on the first sip, but fairly smooth and complex. A slight lingering burn but not overpowering. Quite nice.

I'm generally not a huge fan of Bacardi rums, which you'll know if you look at the bottom of my shelf. But I really do like their Gran Reserva Limitada, so I thought I'd try something in the middle. Purchased for only $29.99 at Total Wines & More. This rum really impressed me!

It's smooth for a 40%abv rum, and went down easy. It's a little on the sweet side, but I'm ok with that.

Smells and tastes of molasses, vanilla, oak, and light spice. Simple, but very good.

I usually rate rums about a point below their consensus rating, so me giving this an 8 is a very good complement, especially at this price!

Edit: I finally just tried the Bacardi 8 and agree with two other reviewers that the 8 is slightly better, as it has even less alcohol burn.

Wonderful Carmel color, slight hint of sweet and spice. Very close to a Mid level scotch in smoothness

For a very long time first thing that appeared in my mind when hearing "Bacardi" was their basic line of mass rum production, meant to be mixed in every pub all around the world. However, at some point I decided to give a chance to something more complex from this brand, and here I am - my meeting with 10 yo Bacardi can be described as fully enjoyable and - as stated in the title - this product is a decent aged rum. Slight alcohol burn at the end made my score to be one point less in comparison to other spirits of similar age, nevertheless I would recommend Gran Rezerva Diez 10 yo to anyone interested in exploring the Bacardi brand. Give it a go - you will be positively surprised.

Having added coconut water ice cube, my rating goes up to 8/10.

Unlike others here, I am a Bacardi fan. Bacardi 8 is what got me started on aged rums. The Gran Reserva Diez is less complex than the 8 year old rum but has much more alcohol burn. It’s smooth enough but not enough to be a sipper. I very good mixer but for the price there are far better values. While Bacardi 8 is a solid rum and the Reserva Limitada is as good a rum as you’ll ever find, this falls short. Save the money and buy the Bacardi 8.

Very smooth gold rum. Bacardi got this one right. Sips well with ice. Never too harsh with a nice easy finish.

Decent wine for the price. It’s nice to drink when you don’t want to waste your bad bottles.

Sugar:17-20 GPL. Thought I would give this a try as there’s not much coming into the LCBO this holiday season. Oak, caramel butterscotch, some spice and of course vanilla. All traditional tastes but this rum has a strong alcohol aroma that does fade after a few minutes but it carries on into the taste of the rum. Other than that it’s a fairly smooth rum but it’s a good mixer for me. It’s $44.00 in Ontario and I would say that you should save $12 and purchase the 8 year old version.

Nice smooth drink with robust flavor of the park aging.

Still on qurantine, still alive.
Trying two not expensive and not too old drinks side by side: Bacardi 10 vs Porteno 8.
Firstly B10. Strange etanol on the nose. Seems does not evaporate in a while. Pretty smooth on the palate, but again the same hint of the alcohol bites and ruins the taste. The aftertaste is the best part of this exercise.
Then there was P8. Light and semi sweet. Again, nothing special in the taste, but it is simply more attractive and fine.
So Bacardi 5.6 - Porteno 6.5
