Product Description

Gold Medal, International Review of Spirits Award This aged rum, we are told, was historically reserved for Don Facundo & the Bacardi family. It is a blend of Bacardi’s finest Caribbean rums, is aged at least eight years in carefully selected, small, mature oak casks , then masterfully blended to develop the rounded complexity of that only the finest aged rums attain to. Mixing Bacardi 8 year old is strictly taboo. Colour: Rich copper colour. Aroma: Sweet toffee, roasted nuts, and brown spice aromas are very sophisticated and deep. Palate: SA vibrant entry leads to a supple, glycerous and lightly sweet full-bodied palate of chocolate, warm caramel, toasted nuts, and rich spices with a touch of cigar box and lacquer for complexity. Finish: Finishes with a long, smoky caramel and spice fade. Fantastic and a must for cigars. Until recently Bacardi 8 Year Old Rum had remained the special reserve of the Bacardi family. It is a premium, golden, sipping rum, made from a blend of Bacardi Rums aged between 8 and 16 years. This prolonged ageing allows a concentration of flavours via evaporation and extended contact with charred wood, causing tannins to diffuse into the rum. This delivers a smoother and richer flavour. The final Bacardi 8 Year Old Rum product has a deep golden colour, a complex yet well rounded aroma of prunes, apricots, vanilla and nutmeg over a clean oak base and a long expansive finish with a rounded palate. To fully appreciate the complexity of Bacardi 8 Year Old Rum, it is best savoured neat over a generous serving of ice Originally the rum produced only for the Bacardi family, this is a blend of select Bacardi rums which have been matured in smaller barrels to give them more contact with the oak and develop the flavour of the rum. A bright golden colour, it has aromas of oak, vanilla, almond and apricots with smooth warming notes of brown sugar, tropical fruit and oak. Aged for more than eight years in carefully selected oak barrels. After ageing it is blended to perfection featuring notes of prunes, apricots, nutmeg and vanilla over a clean woody background of oak. Its taste is smooth, rich and very full with a long and expansive finish.
