Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I'm posting these mostly so that I know what to buy again and what to avoid. This is the latest in my adventure to try what's on sale for the month. This is my first Bacardi. I'm somewhat leery of the brand, given how hard it get panned here, but it's on sale and supposedly a cut above their rack grade grog, so what the hell...
I like molasses, and this has a good taste of it. Similar to the Captain Morgan Deluxe Dark, but overall smoother with less bite and none of the ethanol taste. Not much for aroma, but my nose isn't all that keen anyway. I'll buy it again as a good all purpose rum.
Edit: Going back to this one I can now certainly taste the added sugar. I'm going to knock a point off and probably won't buy again.
Funny how quickly the palate evolves. I really do prefer a dry Jamaican style rum for sipping
But not go dringing straight.
The smell is Bacardi like, mainstream.
Light burn and not many flavors.
And not a long lasting aftertaste.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
The aroma's are not my personal favour, but this is absolutely a very good distillate. Nicely balanced and good length.
It’s light, slightly floral. It’s quite a fresh nose with a lot of vanilla and light milk chocolate.
"There is a honeyed sweetness with this rum which does become a little cloying at times. That combines with a slightly bitter finish which becomes a touch over oaked."
