Drink Review: Bacardi Black Rum

Premium dark rum from the world’s biggest rum brand. Rich, smooth and full-bodied, this is perfect with cola or fruit juices

Bacardi Black Rum Review:

In the Caribbean, rum is associated with good times and strong men – from pirates, revolutionaries and warriors to modern day tourists. That said, Bacardi is one of the fanciest, most exclusive brands around. Don’t be deceived by the tongue-in-cheek, light-hearted name as it takes itself seriously (within reason). Bacardi brand rums encompass a range of flavours and styles. Bacardi is best known for the piña colada (a sweet blend of white rum and cream spun into a frothy concoction of pineapple juice) and the Medio tiempo (which blends everything from dark molasses to light muscovado sugar). Mainline rums are the strong stuff, produced to a 42.5% abv and Bacardi Black is no different.

Bacardi black is quite a complex rum with notes of molasses, burnt sugar, dark and roasted malts, light tobacco, light honey and an aftertaste of vanilla. This rum also sports a smoky nose which develops a leathery note (which I personally find rather attractive). At over 40% it’s also quite strong.

Despite its lighter colour it’s taste and aroma are very intense. I enjoyed the full flavour to flavour (which is to say this is quite a monster) and it was pleasantly sweet.

I was very pleased to see Bacardi Black within the Tesco Drink for £4, I have not seen this rum in the UK before and I believe Bacardi Black is the powerhouse in the Bacardi Dark Rum range. It’s also a cheaper option, I believe it comes in at 55% alc, which is reasonable and quite cost effective when you consider how much blenders are charged to add flavourings to rum.

I have experienced Bacardi Black rum before in the US and I have to say it is an over the top rum. I know everyone has their favourite rums and opinions vary dramatically so I’m sure this rum won’t be to everyone’s taste and I’m never here to say that any rum is better than another. However, I can say that Bacardi Black is hugely impressive, you can definitely tell it’s a rum at the flavours described, it’s no wonder it’s Bacardi and the rum brand’s premium rum.

This rum doesn’t really stand very tall in the rum stakes, I find it to be a little on the expensive side. I know a lot of people initially find it a little blander than more premium rums, this is absolutely true, but I’d say that it’s still a pleasantly smooth rum. Unlike some premium rums I generally wouldn’t actually recommend this to people to buy, however, if you’re a fan of classy gourmet rums then this might be the rum for you.

I’m sorry, I really can’t talk much about the Bacardi Black rum as I don’t have much experience with it. I drink a lot of ‘proper’ rums, which are actually blended in such a way that they’re actually somewhat hard to talk about.

I generally prefer blends and am quite picky about my wines and liqueurs, so when I look out for more ‘vodka’ or ‘moonshine liqueurs’, I tend to skip straight to the smooth, and more complex, aged rums.

Bacardi Black rum is a very softly-fired rum, which is distilled in Puerto Rico and extremely sweet (as you would expect with Bacardi). It has a very high boost and consequently a strong aftertaste, which is let down a bit by the fact that the rum itself isn’t too ‘complex’ (I’ve been reflecting on this rum a lot recently and a lot of the rum I drank on my recent trip demonstrated a lot more character than this).

However, if you’re looking for a really nice and smooth dark rum then this is a lot of fun. Bacardi has been producing and distributing rum for over 200 years (or 191, give or take) so yeah, this rum (like the rest of the Bacardi rum range) is quite deadly-serious.

Bacardi Black Rum Review:

A perfect bottle for the serious rum drinker. A smooth and well-balanced blend with a hint of vanilla and a fragrance of dark chocolate and dried fruits. Full-bodied and rich

Pros: Smooth, distinctive and elegant

Cons: To expensive

If you don’t know this rum already you should try it. It’s a smooth, light and mild rum with hints of tropical fruit sweet aromatics. Very good value. Better than the

Many people have looked for an affordable, smooth, and easy-to-drink rum. A rum for everybody. The Bacardi Black is one of the best.

A blend of dark rum, molasses, sugar and pure cane spirit makes Bacardi Black a natural exponent of white rum.

It is an excellent, delicious, and excellent, and a smooth rum. I love the smell of the Bacardi Black. I guess that this rum is perfect for those who like the taste of cigars (rum tinctures, Havana cigars, cigars, cigar latte, etc.). And – fortunately for me – I love it! I drink (almost) all rum, but the Bacardi Black has a special place in my heart, I simply love it.

I’m the father of two boys. My nickname is Bacardi. I have the same lucky number (11) as Bacardi. My sons are six and four. As a child, I also liked the pirates and the pirates and I collect the pirate movies and the pirates toys and the books and now, when the boys are older, I get them the gift of the Bahamian Bacardi. From the first sip I am with the pirates. I love the smell of rum.

Bacardi Black is very smooth, I have thick medium stiff hair. The smell and taste are very nice. I like the smell of the rum, I like the taste of the rum, rum and coke, was a very nice combination for a very special rum. The rum came nicely packaged in a very special box, it looked expensive. I like the packaging because my grandfather played with the dinosaurs when he was small.
