Proof66 Notes

The Bacardi Gold rum does not carry an age statement... we presume that, like the silver, it is aged 1-2 years in oak and and given a light filtration and bottled (presumably at least some of the color is owed to the wood aging). Formerly known as the "gold rum" it experienced a name change in 2015 changing to "carta oro." Thankfully, for lovers of cave dwelling animals, the bat logo remains intact.

Bacardi Gold is a mixing rum mainly with regular Coke Cola.Its nose is oak , butterscotch, caramel,, and charcoal. The entry is heated with a palate of bitter citrus molasses, caramel, spice , ending with vanilla finish.It does not mix well with citrus due to its bitterness,Cruzan Gold Rum and Ron Rico Gold Rum are better for less money,

Mix this with Coke. Please do, on its own it needs a lot of help.

Mix and stir kind of rum, well served with cola and to cocktails, not very recommended to drink neat, or on the rocks

A situational spirit.  The situation is, you're at a backyard cookout in the summer and this is being poured into Coca-cola.  Within roughly those parameters, it serves well enough.

Barely hanging on to the slippery edge of OK is Bacardi Gold. Granted Ive had worse - much worse - but the problem with this one is there is nothing interesting, particularly tasty, or quality about BG. Its only good point is its cheap price. Failing that, look just about anywhere else in the same price range or higher.

Not something I would have on my shelf. Good for mixing though.

For a less expensive rum, this one is pretty good as a mixer. Overall smooth taste. Definitely has an alcohol bouquet. Not a good choice to drink neat unless you like the feel of a hundred needles tickling your tongue!
