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.

Smooth wood with molasses. Easy to drink, smooth. Woody round molasses aftertaste. Slightly Sweety.

Has one of the better noses i encountered in rum with rich pineapple, burnt oak, and citrus with hint of caramel. It tastes very light on the palate with same burnt oak and pineapple flavors with dry finish. It's a good light sipper, though there are numerous other brands that i prefer over this.

It is a good rum. Its lighter than Mount Gay XO, nor is it as good (though it's close), but for the price this is fantastic. Get some if you can.

(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.
