Each batch of Bacardi 8 Year old Rum is made from a special selection of barrel-aged reserve rums
Bacardi 8 Year Old Rum is expertly crafted and hand blended by Maestros de Ron Bacardi. Each batch is made from a special selection of barrel-aged reserve rums, ranging from 8 to 9 years old and due to being shaped using a secret blend of charcoals it is smoother than any Cognac. After the master blenders achieve the desired taste profile, the rum is bottled and sealed with a cork.
Bacardi 8 Year Old has a very complex flavour with many different layers that develop as you sip it. The most distinctive flavour is a pronounced dried stone-fruit note, specifically prune with some hints of black cherry. Wood notes are prominent with oak and maple shining through alongside vanilla, caramel, toffee, butterscotch and spices - ginger, cinnamon, clove, all spice and nutmeg. Its sweetness is floral and honeyed with caramelised banana balanced with the warm earthiness of walnuts and pecans. It has an expansive and well-rounded sweet finish with the slight piquant bitterness of orange zest.
