Bacardi Superior Rum is the original Bacardi rum, dating back to 1862 when Don Facundo Bacardi Massó purchased his first rum distillery in Cuba. 150 years later, Bacardi Superior is now manufactured in Puerto Rico, but the recipe remains largely the same.
A unique strain of yeast discovered in the Cuban sugarcane fields is used to produce Bacardi Superior rum. The rum is filtered through charcoal, a process pioneered by Bacardi, before and after it is aged in oak barrels for at least one year.
Serious improvement needed
I feel like this is just about everyone's first rum in the sense that its mixed into just about every tropical drink. It's cheep, it's basic, but by no means is it something you'd want to drink on its own. It's good if you're trying to boose something up, but just be prepared to mask with Malibu, juice or a lot of Coca Cola. If you're looking for a cheap white rum you'd be better off with something like Meyers Platinum.
Let's be honest, this end of the Bacardi lineup is very limited, but has a role in the RUMba Community. You walk into a watering hole and see the selection is... well, let's just say you are in no mood to experiment. We've all been there. It's hot. You're thirsty. The character behind the bar has the patience of a gnat and "Q" tattoos. "Bacardi and soda, please." The well lemons look like Joan Rivers before her 12th face lift. You get the picture. Don't hate just set your expectation for what this one is good for.
Great mixer. Strawberry daiquiris mixed with this was my point of entry for rum. Anyone that rates this as bottom-of-the-barrel rum is a moron. It's actually one of the better values out there considering it isn't sugared down like a lot of "premium" rums. That said, I doubt I'll be shipping it any time soon, but the characterization by some cranks of Bacardi Superior as being naught better than drain cleaner is undeserved and hyperbolic in the extreme. Some people really need to get a grip.
