Bacardi 8-Year is a blended rum, filtered using the Bacardi-pioneered charcoal filtering system and aged for eight years.
This rum was not released to the public until 1995, when the first limited edition Bacardi 8 was sold with a sherry oak finish in a Baccarat crystal decanter. Despite a price tag of $400 per bottle, the rum was hugely popular and led to the larger release of the blend without the collectors' features and price.
Coming from bacardi it's fairly common and good value. Just about drinkable straight but maybe not enough flavour to work well with a mixer.
This is the Bacardi to get if you want to have a great sipping and mixing rum. Forget about the white one called "superior" and buy this one instead.
I give this rum a 7 for sipping straight as it never really gets the the point its making. It has a robust flavor I enjoy straight but it has too much going on at the same time. Don't get me wrong its an excellent straight sipper but not my first choice even at this price point. For a mixer I give it a 10. So an 8.5 overall.
I guess this could be a mixing rum. More fire than flavor and what flavor there was ...was flat.
Needed a better rum in small town liquor store and found this aged Bacardi. I am not too high on Bacardi other than Limon but this was quite good considering the over produced approach. I like with Soda or in a dark & stormy. Decent price as well.
Kan drikkes ren, men har en del mangler, er meget hurtig flad, derfor bedst i drinks, hvor vanille smagen også kommer lidt frem.
Ikke et genkøb
I recently used this as a mixer with ginger ale. It has a nice flavor, mixes well. I did not get a chance to sip it by itself. Could be a go-to mixer for a decent price.
Has gone down in quality in recent years as popularity has forced a little overproduction. Still a great rum on the rocks with leathery feel.
I bought some of this on a fishing trip with a couple friends turned out to be one of my top 10 rums not to strong or light just right for me
Very nice rum and a surprise at how good a sipping rum this is.
I have tasted better stuff that home distillers have made and aged themselves. For 8 years it should be much smother than it is. Not a good value buy.
This rum is easy to find, so that's a big plus, and it's not too bad. Smooth it is not. Perhaps as a mixer.
A good mixer. Ginger Ale and lime is always a refreshing, enjoyable drink. I find Ginger Ale a way better than Coke. Give it a try.
This was my second introduction into aged rum and still a favorite. Great with coke, AMAZING in cocktails, and a the only Bacardi rum I'll drink.
I am not a fan of Bacardi rum. I find it very plain and unimaginative. I was given this bottle and figured it worth a try. The amber colour is nice but it lacks the flavours of other ambers. While it is not bad for a Bacardi offering it is not one for the avid rum taster.
I rather like to mix this rum, although this one you can sip. Actually it's the first valuable Bacardi that you could sip without to puke.
Nice smooth rum
Un très bon rhum Bacardi, il faut l'admettre.
Un very good rum from Bacardi, we must admit.
The best of Bacardi's production but it remains a Bacardi smoot an featureless
Really nice tasting rum. Smooth, with a little bit of smoke and a lot of dark berry fruits. Definitely a sipper. If you like Appleton, this is a rum for you. Also one of the cheapest out there, no matter where you are. Sorry Bacardi haters, but sometimes you gotta give the devils their due.
Nice little taste
