Proof66 Notes

The Bacardi 8yr Anejo takes the original silver, which is aged for 1-2 years, and gives it an additional 8 years in oak barrels (giving rise to the label). This is considered one of the premium end products of from Bacardi and considered an exceptional value for the money.

Bacardi Rum was founded in 1862 in Santiago, Cuba by Don Facundo Bacardi Masso. The brand became inextricably linked to Havana, the daiquiri, and the Cuba Libre (rum and coke) at the turn of the century and through the gilded age. The company was strong until the Communist takeover in 1962. The plant was relocated to Puerto Rico where it remains to this day as one of the largest rum producers on earth. Today, it has also acquired a number of spirits over recent years and today have sales in excess of $5 billion. While the original company was founded in Cuba it's totally absent from the Communist country today and headquartered in Bermuda.

(3 out of 5). I was skeptical because of the brand, but had to give it a try because of the price and reviews. Interesting and enjoyable scent. Very light and pleasant, and a decent sipper. Nothing exceptional, but for the price it's pretty good, and is presented well. I'd still rather pay the extra few bucks for Ron Abuelo 12, Mount Gay XO or Matusalem 15. $18 in my area.

At The Rum Project Forum we have reviewed over 120 rums and tend to like younger rums. Eight years in the tropics is like 20 years in the north. We found this 8 year to be a surprisingly pleasant, light sipper, nice and fresh. But really unremarkable, and honestly I have to doubt its age, as it tastes much younger. For the complete review and many others, do stop by:
