Rum Review: Bacardi Rum 8 Year Old

  • May 20, 2010

For my introduction to this review I thought I would write a short history of the Bacardi Company.  I did a little research and realized very quickly that a “short’ introduction was impossible.  So I changed gears and wrote  instead a longer article called  “Ron Bacardi & Cuba – Turbulent Times” and published it “Extras” Section of my Blog  (And published previously on Rum Connection).  If you click on the article name you will be brought to the article.

One thought I would like to add, is that I went into this review fully expecting to dislike the Bacardi 8 Year Old.  It is, after all, quite fashionable to bash Bacardi and claim with a somewhat superior air that anything they make is for the masses, and therefore obviously inferior.  Let me say right up front that it is just that type of intellectual snobbery that made me pass up this wonderful rum for almost a year.  This rum doesn’t just break the stereotype I had in my head … it destroys it!!  Here is an except from my review:

“…. I could not help but notice that the delivery of the Bacardi 8 year old rum was very similar to the delivery of a really good whisky. I am not talking about flavours mind you, I am talking about style.  The rum carries a lovely light smoke, and a firm oak flavour which provides foundation and character.  This is not a sweet rum dripping with honey. It is a firm well oaked rum….”
