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.
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.
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.
In mix vond ik het persoonlijk iets te scherp misschien zou een schijfje citroen/limoen het wat afzachten
While this stuff obviously can't compare to real stuff it isn't that bad. If 5 is average for cheap stuff I would give a 6.5. I rounded down because of the fact that they use Carmel color to make it look more aged than it is. Would never drink it straight but would say it is fine for the average person in a cheap mixed drink. That being said if it was me I wouldn't touch it and just drink quality stuff, even when mixed.
If you don't know anything about rum or just hate a good rum and coke then this is for you. It's a very low end rum, like most Bacardi rums, but it's not there worst it just tastes like cheap alcohol with hints of rum. I'd stay away from it.
It's not too tough to drink, but the finish reminds me too much of white rum which I don't like.
Well, if you were to draw a plain stick figure on a blank white piece of paper...it would be this. Very little character...alcohol, a bit of sweetness that's hard to decipher, and some burn. It's a mixer with no character. If you're looking for similar, but need some flavor, go Oak Heart. It's at least got some sort of added flavor.
Had it a couple of times way before I started drinking better rums (when i was still a student). I had it mixed with coke and lime. I will never buy a bottle again. I'll rather pay for Bacardi 8 años instead of having a free bottle of this. Just not my thing.
This is not sweet, not complex, not smooth. I suppose if you added enough fruit juice you could get it down.
I think this gets low ratings because it's the "common" brand. But it's a solid, safe bet, especially if you just want a rum-and-coke.
Drinkable with mixers, but nothing special here for sure
Did not get the feeling that it way a top shelf rum. Ok to use as a mixer but not for a sipper. The color is good but has a little bit. I will not keep it on hand for my guests.
The only way to drink this one is to use it in a mixed drink or with a coke. Not for sipping at all (suppose that is also not a purpose of this rum).
