I agree that Bacardi 8 has a flavour profile that is unique to their other offerings..And one I quite like.

I admit that I did not know they are using sherry casks for aging this product. I wonder if this accounts for the "toffee" aroma and flavour I find prevelant in this rum? It certainly is a "heavy" rum compared to the rest of their line-up.

I believe Ed announced the closing of the Nassau site some time ago in "Rum News"

Whether they continue this product upon closing of the Nassau facilty remains to be seen.
