But not go dringing straight.
The smell is Bacardi like, mainstream.
Light burn and not many flavors.
And not a long lasting aftertaste.

I gave bacardi last chance to imprese me with the good rum. Disapointing again. Typicall for bacardi taste - caramel sweetness and alchohol aftertaste . Nose - "grassy"-like with the alchohol background. Nothing more. Where does it spent his 8 years?
I tasted all the main lineup of Bacardi rums, and i must say that Bacardi cannot make a taste, good rum, only cheap mass product for getting drunk. For me Bacardi dead as a rum producer.

Евтин входящ ром, който може да се пие чист или разреден с кока-кола или друго. За 25€ нямах големи очаквания, а и той не ме изненада с нищо.

Did not expect to much from this 28 Eur rum. After tasting it I was pleasantly suprised. Not bad at all.

Opened the bottle 20-30 min before tasting

Light intense copper-golden colour with a big water edge.
Light intense in the nose with aroma's of smoke, spices and some caramel.

Soft start on the palate with aroma's of oloroso sherry, wood, spices and some whiskey-hints.
Long finish

The aroma's are not my personal favour, but this is absolutely a very good distillate. Nicely balanced and good length.
Score: 81/100

Caveat: This is my first review of a rum I have seen from some reviews might be a good, standalone sipper. I am a newbie to the rum review world so have limited experiences to compare to.
- Appearance: A dark, inviting amber
- Nose: A nicely subtle sweet, caramel and vanilla note
- Palate: It comes across immediately with the sweet caramel and vanilla flavor the nose promised prevailing. With coaxing, there is a very, very, slight hint of smoke and the tiniest alcohol bite. The finish is nice.
- Overall: I like the sweetness in this offering. It makes for a pretty smooth, easy going sipper on a quiet evening after a good meal. Sweet, warming and enjoyable. Better than the affordable price might indicate, IMHO.

It's not terrible but it's definitely not a sipper. Decent, affordable mixer.

Many rum purists (myself included at times) dismiss Bacardi as a "mainstream mixer" not worthy of a more "advanced" palate. Yes, that's supposed to sound snobby and pretentious. This bottling is a totally acceptable mutlipurpose rum. It works in an Old Fashioned, a rum and coke, and in a bind it's not so bad on the rocks. I won't fight you for a bottle, but it's a decent rum. It's a bit sweet for my tastes, but there is a little oakiness and a few other flavour notes (vanilla, oak) are present. Give this one a chance if the price is right.

This rum is meant for mixing and not to be sipped. Good for a rum and cola.

This is a fairly middle of the ground rum. Nothing about it is overly offensive, but nothing stands out either.

As a mixer, it’s very good. I don’t find it overly sweet, and the hint of rum is a nice addition.
