Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Bacardi Gold rum is manufactured in Puerto Rico where it is distilled from fermented molasses. It is then filtered through charcoal and aged in charred oak barrels for between 1 and 2 years. Unlike Bacardi Superior, Bacardi Gold is only filtered once.
Bacardi's official logo, a fruit bat, dates to 1862 when founder Don Facundo Bacardi found fruit bats living in rafters of the building he bought to house the distillery. Bats are considered an omen of good luck in Cuba and have emblazoned Bacardi rum bottles ever since.
Mixer only as most Bacardi rums are. Mixes easily with cola which masks most flavors
Its better than their white or the oakheart. I bought it to taste it, and that is all I did with it and then put it back on the bottom shelve behind everything.
There's only one way to drink this. What it was made for. Cuba libres. Aka rum and coke. Be sure to add plenty of lime. Don't know why all the bad reviews. It was made for a specific purpose. GAI. (Get after it)
I do not really like Bacardi. Something tastes off about it. The only thing this is good for is mixing with coke or fruit juices, bet even then you get a glimmer of the taste.
This is very bad rum for drinking straight. If you're going to drown it in cola or mixers, why not buy a better mixing rum (e.g. something by El Dorado or Flor de Cana or Seale) and watch your drinking life improve. Also, you'll attract better friends.
Ok to mix in binds specially for Cuba libres or mojito. This is where it tastes good. The taste is ok and not too strong in cocktails. I always prefer Bacardi rums for cocktails rather than captain Morgan
Was my go-to for Cuba Libres till recently. Great for mixing, adds a subtle flavor to the mixers, not exactly a sipping rum...
A step above white, but compared to other gold rums, it's not good, but like the white, very affordable.
A step above engine degreaser. Strong alcohol aroma and taste...almost confused it with a whiskey.
Tastes like olives. Nasty nasty stuff. Yer better off fermenting your own fruits. The botchalism is worth not drinking this crap. Worst alcohol I've ever tasted. I'd rather eat the bottom of a used boot heel. Gross, disgusting waste of money. You'll be hard pressed to find a good review
Bacardi really amaze me. How can they produce so many average rums and still become so popular?
I found this rum good in a rum punch where you do not want too much rum flavour. Not a sipping rum and does not make a good rum and coke ,where you want more rum taste.
Bleh bleh bleh bleh blaaaaa bleh bleh. Not good I'd rather have superior to mix
better than silver but only for mixing not really straight
Mixes ok with coke. Not a sipper. I think the Limon is better as a mixer
Generic bottom barrel rum. Tastes of gasoline. Very bad rum.
This is another rum I use for mixing with cola and Dr. Pepper. Would not drink it neat.
Bacardi Gold was my first serious (?) initiation into the world of rum. It is not the first rum I ever had but it's the first one I drank consistently. The friend who introduced me to Bacardi Gold told me that if I enjoyed it it would lead me to trying other, more flavorful rums.
Simple rum for mix, nothing more, a little bit better in taste that havana
That's what I get from this, vanilla and alcohol. From the smell to the mouth feel, to the taste. All I get is alcohol and vanilla.
Appearance: Pale amber, transparent
Aroma: alcohol, slight molasses
Taste: slightly sweet, slightly bitter
Flavor: wood, slight vanilla
Texture: thin, burn
Finish: short, dry, flavorless
This one is tasty enough to be used for cocktail (like cuba libre) but on its own this is not enough to spend time and money.
I know its not "cool" or trendy but I still enjoy Bacardi Gold.
