Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Dans la pure tradition des rhums Cubains ( ben oui je sais, je sais... Allez lire un peu sur l'histoire de la maison avant de me traiter d'inculte ) cette bouteille n'est pas sans intérêt.
Tranchant, sec sur des notes de miel, petit fruits, noix et un petit chênes subtil, ce rhum est un produit qui a visiblement jouit d'un grand travail de recherche avant la commersialisation!
Produit honnête, parcontre un peu cher pour ce qu'il a à offrir.
Considering price, this rum is only slightly better than the 8 yr. Had this after Barrilito 3 Estrellas and I just stared at my glass wondering if I really just had a top shelf rum. It's all around average to boring. Nothing of it seems worth the price.
I visited Bacardi while working in Puerto Rico earlier this year and was amazed that such a product was produced on the island. This is a very rich and smooth sipper tasting of quality that I have not expected to get from a bottle of Bacardi.
I purchased my bottle with my name and year and placed this on my top shelf where it remains unopened for now.
I just brought a bottle of this back from New York City. I had tasted it before, but this is the first time that I gave it a serious tasting. It is one my top rums. I love sipping it. It is a huge step up in class from your normal Bacardi products.
Very Smooth with one ice. I would put it on my top Shelf.
Got a bottle of this a while back as a gift from someone who was at the distilerry. It's good, but at the price point a lot better, smoother and more complex can be had.
One of the nicer Bacardi rums I've tried. Smooth neat, better for me on ice, and nice with mix though losing it's unique flavor versus cheaper rums. Not sure if worth the price but certainly enjoyed.
You are a little bit surprised over Bacardi company thta should have the resourcesto produce the finest Rum or by up from the ones that do so. For the brans calling a product Limitada you should expect extra all fromthis bottle. I would say that 8 year is better for the price.
This was my first high end rum and it has set the standard. Still trying to find another one that's close. Anything less than a 9 is due to that persons lack of palate to understand complex flavor. Best neat, but one ice cube with about 2oz serving really brings out sweeter flavors. A MUST try!!!
A very impresive rum, a great taste and a nice colour. The aftertaste is short but it's all right. Well, all around, the Bacardi Reserva limitada is a great rum.
It's a decent rum. A little sweet at first, then oaky. Finish has some heat. Nothing memorable or particularly tasty.
What a terrific, bargain purchase! This rum is definitely a great deal at any price below $100.00us. The nose is vanilla, smooth drinking with great after tones of light spice and caramel.
I consider myself quite a newbie in this realm, but this Rum is my favorite so far. So so smooth.
I picked this up in the airport for £79.00. At that price I'm still dancing around now. It's smooth, this was not what I was expecting. This is a very good rum, I'm still surprised that it's a Bacardi. I'm off to pour another glass as I'm in shock that something so well can be made by Bacardi!
We are all looking for our next 9 or 10, but I have to say I think I got a deal too. One of the local stores had this - on sale - so even though I can't give it a higher rating, I still think I scored with a $50 bottle of pretty good stuff!
Sugar: 15 GPL. This is a smooth rum, probably one of the smoothest from Bacardi but that is because it doesn't have any strong flavours. Tasting notes of honey, wood, vanilla and some fruit. In the glass it has the aroma of new leather and honey which seems an odd thing to say but that's what I came to the conclusion of. It goes down really easy and the after burn is very pleasant, but it doesn't last that long. The taste profile is not very complex to say the least as it doesn't wow you. At $120 CDN per bottle this rum is vastly overpriced. To be fair this is the best Bacardi that I have tasted, however I think Bacardi is jumping on the premium rum trend with this blend. I am inclined to think this is a money grab and that the rum in this blend isn't that "Limited".
Tasty, but not much more..the should be doing better... they have the resources...but do they have the will and skill?
My wife bought me a bottle of this stuff for Christmas! Well I would have never bought it because when I think of Bacardi I think "Rum N Coke". This stuff is very good and definitely top shelf Rum. The rum starts out good and just finishes up the same. I would recommend a bottle if you are a true officiator of fine Rum.
I was not very impressed with other Bacardi Products but I had seen great ratings for this product and decided to pick up a bottle while on Puerto Rico. This outstanding rum is masterfully blended and has a smooth, buttery consistency. It finishes very well. The nose is rich with the typical molasses, vanilla, and plantain nose of a fine rum. If you happen to be vacationing in Puerto Rico, you can get a bottle for $75 or less at a Duty Free shop. In the States it will cost you about $110.
Amazing made into a old fashion hold the cherry
My bottle went down a treat on a Sunday afternoon with some friends
I will buy the next year's release and drink with friends
Soft oak. Honey vanilla, baking spice, tropical fruit, banana. Don't ruin it with water or ice neat all the way. Overall one of my favorites
I was a little hesitant to buy this given it's $100+ price and relatively low score for the price. But I was curious so I decided to buy a bottle.
I was pleasantly surprised. Brown sugar, vanilla, with a very nice oak aged flavor. Maybe it's not worth the price (costs about the same as some much better rums) but a fine rum nonetheless.
Tasted only one time, some years ago, at one friend's house. Not a bad experience, good body, and nice flavor. Maybe in the near future I'll buy a bottle of this one.
I held off on buying this one for a few years because of the price and the generic stigma attached to Bacardi products.
Overall it has a nice fruity smooth taste but underneath is that mass-produced generic taste that I was afraid off. + there is no way this bottle should cost $120 bucks. There are far better products that you could purchase at half the cost.
