About this deal

Its flavour notes of apricot, nutmeg, and vanilla create a deliciously complex profile that is sure to impress even the most discerning of palates. Our packaging is eco-conscious: 100% recyclable, compostable, and biodegradable internal fittings made from recycled materials. Notes of dried stone fruits (prune with hints of black cherry) with oak and maple shining through alongside vanilla, caramel, toffee, butterscotch and spices. It also provides a wonderful depth of flavour to any dark rum cocktail, such as a Rum Old Fashioned.

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. Together this makes BACARDÍ Reserva 8 satisfying to sip or perfect as a gift for men and women, rum aficionados, and those who appreciate quality and craftsmanship.uk accepts no liability for inaccuracies or misstatements about products by manufacturers or other third parties. The flavour profile of both rums is consistent, it’s just that the newer bottling took it a few notches higher – it could also be a side-effect of the 8 Year Old sitting in the bottle for longer, but I doubt. 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. It may not be reproduced in any way whatsoever without Ocado Limited's prior consent, nor without due acknowledgement.

Incidentally the Bacardi Gold (or Oro as it is now) has recently been re-released in the UK as a 40% offering as opposed to the previous 37. With its luscious and gentle flavours, this rum is perfect for sipping neat or for use in cocktails and mixed drinks.Bacardi Rums are known for their diverse character, often marked by a symphony of flavors, from tropical fruits to caramel notes, and a smoothness that mirrors the tranquil waters of the Caribbean. In the event of any safety concerns or for any other information about a product please carefully read any instructions provided on the label or packaging and contact the manufacturer.

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. Complex and blended to perfection, it’s exceptional as a sipping rum, served neat, on ice, or at the heart of a quality cocktail. Known by its makers as “The Family Reserve”, Bacardi Ocho is a truly noteworthy release from the nation’s favourite brand of rum. Bacardi 8 Year Old Rum is aged to perfection, beautifully capturing rare flavours from the Bacardi family’s treasured recipe. I knew before I got into Newcastle Airports duty free that the rum selection would be fairly limited, I expected to pick up some Bacardi, Captain Morgan, Lambs maybe even a Woods or a Pussers.Following its success they launched a standard 8 year old in 1996 without the finish or fancy bottling – that’s the bottle I have. Bacardi Rum, a symbol of Caribbean vibrancy and the art of rum-making, stands as a testament to over a century of dedication to producing exceptional spirits. It is said that Bacardi 8 was created in 1862 and kept private for the Bacardi family for 7 generations. Known as "The Family Reserve", this BACARDÍ rum was inspired by a recipe from 1862 and was originally kept for family special occasions, but is now available for the world to enjoy.
