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.
Bacardi anos 8 is a Nice smooth rum. Its got a sweet taste with vanilla and oak note's.
Worth it's value! I've heard a lot positive about Bacardi 8 and found it likeable.
I never liked Bacardi, and I did not think could make a rum so good for this price range...instead it was really a nice surprise. Nothing outstanding,obvious, but recommended at this price!
Basic, not too sweet, maybe too thin in the finish.
I had zero expectations and was truly surprised over Bacardi 8 year. I did taste against El Dorado 15 year and Ron Melacom 12 year and it was to my surprise delivering well. I paid 20 euros for it in Spain and sipping it on the terrace with see view, maybe it helped. Recommended to have for testing sessions,
Smoky, Woody almost Scotch.Not big different from Bacardi Reserva.
Very pleasant as a sipping rum. Good aroma, sweet taste with no other aftertaste. Based on price this is a top mixer on my list. Tried it with some of the classic recipes such as Rum Old Fashioned with excelent results.
Full, soft and smooth flavors. A little smoky and woody Not sharp or strong. Really surprised of this rum.
its not a bad rum for me its a mix drink rum and nothing else
This is so far removed from Bacardi Superior as its possible to be ! My favourite rum to have with a good make of cola (Theres plenty if you look around) This is great value for money and very well made ! Dont buy their cheap stuff but invest another $20 in a bottle of the 8 , you wont regret it !
For an aged rum it's just ok. I prefer the Flor de Caña 7 any day.
I had the opportunity to sample Bacardi 8. Not a bad rum considering the price range. Color is light amber. Aroma shows notes of vanilla. The legs are not long. Tasting reveals vanilla and butterscotch. Mild after burn with a short finish. I think it is ok neat but could make a superb coctail rum.
I usualy never drink Bacardi but this one was a very good surprise. Very smooth...
J'ai toujours pensé que bacardi était une marque faite "pour tout le monde". J'ai été surpris en goutant ce rhum 8 ans ! Je l'ai trouvé excellent, il n'agresse pas la bouche. On sent bien le goût de cêne et de sucre/caramel. Il a une bonne odeur vanillée, mais pas très forte. Ce rhum fait parti de mes préférés pour l'instant.
I always thought that was a mark made bacardi "for everyone." I was surprised while tasting the rum 8 years! I found it excellent, it does not attack the mouth. The oak and sugar/caramel flavor tastes good. It has a good smell of vanilla, but not very strong. This rum is one of my favorite for now.
I find it difficult to like Bacardi, but this one is not bad.
Shines in rum and cokes even against more "well regarded" rums, especially at this price point.
IMO, this is much better the Bacardi Anjeo, it has good flavor, a longer finish, deeper color and richness. A pretty good rum for sipping, it will perk your desire to drink better rums, not a bad thing!
Nice sweet / smooth bacardi, one of my bacardi favourites!

Prima rum van Bacardi, zoetig met fruit smaken, hout en vanille heb ik ook kunnen ontdekkken..
Dit is een sipper wat mij betreft, en ben nu ook benieuwd naar de Reserva Limitada.
at least compared to the superior white rum,which is simply horrible
Este ron puede tomarse confiablemente sin que te de daños colaterales como lo hacen sus hermanos de menor edad
This is one of the cleanest rums i have ever tasted.. It´s not thick, not strong, not light and have none special notes.. It´s the most average rum i have ever tried. When i think of rum.. This is probably the taste.. I will not regret this buy..
Ce rhum m'aura surpris. Je ne m'attendais pas à autant de goût, de finesse et de douceur, pour le prix, ça vaut bien le ''diplomatico reserva''.
Who knew Bacardi had a rum like this in their stable? This is a nice versatile rum that mixes well, adds flavor and variety to any cocktail, and is not a bad on the rocks sipper. Well done for what it is supposed to be.
