About this deal

A very Highland malt like dry wood is the dominant note on the palate, with tobacco, dry fruit, and vanilla singing backup. Both the 8 Year Old and Ocho are made using molasses, distilled using column stills and aged for at least an year before being charcoal filtered and re-casked for 8 years minimum in, most likely, ex-Bourbon casks. Alternatively, try BACARDÍ Reserva 8 in a Rum Negroni: serve 30ml BACARDÍ Reserva 8, 30ml MARTINI Riserva Speciale Rubino, 30ml MARTINI Riserva Speciale Bitter over ice and garnish with an orange twist. Known by its makers as “The Family Reserve”, Bacardi Ocho is a truly noteworthy release from the nation’s favourite brand of rum. Bacardi Reserva Superior 8 Year Old Rum 70cl is a premium, golden, sipping rum, made from a blend of Bacardi Rums aged between 8 and 16 years.

Bacardi 8 Year Old Rum is aged to perfection, beautifully capturing rare flavours from the Bacardi family’s treasured recipe. Bacardi Reserva 8 Year Old was created in 1862, BACARDÍ OCHO remained the sole preserve of the Bacardí family for seven generations. Notes of dried stone fruits (prune with hints of black cherry) with oak and maple shining through alongside vanilla, caramel, toffee, butterscotch and spices. The brand's emphasis on sustainability, community engagement, and responsible sourcing underscores its commitment to both quality and ethics. Prolonged ageing allows a concentration of flavours via evaporation and extended contact with charred wood, causing tannins to diffuse into the rum.

Bottled at 40% ABV with the Bacardi 8 Year Old containing around 12 grams of sugar per litre according to the fatrumpirate‘s measurements, and the Ocho having around 18 grams of sugar per litre according to the Bacardi nutritional info.

A floral sweetness with notes of caramelised banana, balanced with a warm earthiness which ends with a well-rounded, expansive finish. What sets Bacardi apart and makes it truly unique is its role as a trailblazer in the world of rum production.
