Product DescriptionRare Gold Rum
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.
Created in 1862, Bacardi 8 Year Old remained the sole preserve of the Bacardí family for seven generations. Used only for the most special occasions, this golden sipping rum is the oldest private rum blend in the World. After it was released to the public in 1998, it quickly became coveted by the world's best bartenders.
In 1862 Don Facundo Bacardi not only set the standards for white rum production by producing the world's first premium white rum, he also produced a number of revolutionary golden Bacardi Rums. He took the same light and heavy rums used to blend Bacardi Superior Rum, and aged them for longer to give them greater depth of flavour.
