    Wife liked it

    I’m used to Captain Morgan dark spiced rum with cola! In an effort to save a little bit of money I bought Barcardi Black. It’s a unique flavor with cola…. Kind of citrusy??? I will try it with other calorie free mixes and decide if it’s a keeper or not! Definitely not as smooth as black spiced rum! Cheers!

    I have drank dark rum since my Navy days. 50 years ago. I thank it taste like a mild dark should. Bacardi Black does don't need spice or something else with it. It is what it should be.

    I have difficulty finding this sometimes. I was pleased I did not have to wait.



Dark rum doesn't really have a definition. However, dark rum generally refers to rum that is brown in appearance thanks either aging, or the addition of molasses or caramel coloring. Dark rum is known to taste slightly more charred than other varieties, like white rum. That said, people often drink it neat or with over ice.
Dark rum goes great with a number of mixers, including ginger ale, orange juice, grapefruit juice and sodas like Coca-Cola. Dark rum has the heaviest, fullest body of any other variety of rum. It's rich in color, flavor and body - usually tasting of caramel and molasses. So, any beverage that could use a kick of caramel will be well suited to go with dark rum.
Also known as white rum, this is rum that has no color and a light flavor because its filtered multiple times and has a short aging period. It's often aged in steel tanks and is known for having a light body and sweet flavor. This is different than gold or dark rum which is aged in wooden casks and is notably more caramel tasting.
