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.
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.
Great when needing to mix and smoke a cigar. Rum and Coke etc.
It's nothing that will blow your socks off but it is by far the best amber rum in its price range.
What can I say, if you pour enough coke in it it tastes like coke. My years of cheap drinks at the bars are hopeful long gone. If you want to get a cheap rum go for cruzan over Bacardi.
Netter than the white, but or doesn't live up to it's promise. Nice as a mixer, but nothing more.

I haven't had this in many years, and would only drink it as a last resort nowadays. Only good as mixer.
Since bacardi is pretty popular in pop culture i thought it would a average captain morgan like drink, but boy was i wrong it is very overated. The taste brings nothing to the coke better of with another cheap rum than barcardi. Since i've tried barcardi gold i tried to stay away from anything else that starts with barcardi and to get rid of that bottle i would bring it at party's and share with everyone.
