Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Probably a decent wound antiseptic or floor cleaner. Almost impossible to cover its harshness and no redeeming rumminess to speak of. It's popularity speaks only to its marketing ability and not mutch else. Might as well use vodka if this is the only rum at hand, at least the flavor is easier to mask.
Its clear. Its on the shelf. I suppose you can take it to a party and mix it in stuff and get drunk. Thats fine, just don't try to drink this rum straight or on the rocks...just don't do it. I don't really have any use for it in my cabinet because there are far superior mixers for the same or better price. The issue really is that it has no flavor other than a barely noticeable citrus. I suppose if i had to choose between Bacardi Superior and a standard Vodka then I would choose the Bacardi Superior. Thats about all I can say for it though.
I’m old enough that I was in the first wave of people who could drink when they lowered the drinking age to 18, back in 1973. This was the rum that everybody drank. Older and wiser now, and I do not drink it anymore!
As white rum goes, it’s not terrible. In a mojito or daiquiri, it works. It’s flavours are not exceptional, and it won’t accent any cocktail, but it gets the job done as well as a cheap, mass produced rum can.
Few aromas, stingy alcoholic note. A little better and less stingy than Bacardi white carte blanche.
Seems necessary to have on hand - only used for mixed drinks for company that doesn’t actually like rum. Not bad in a fresh mojito
Rum vhodný pre svoj charakter len do miešanych napojov. Neodporúčam piť samotný,príliš mu nepomôže ani limetka a ľad. Naozaj ho beriem len ako barmansku pomôcku.
Go to rum when I want to have at with a coke. Add a splash of roses lime juice to add a little tartness.
ron blanco, suficiente para un Mojito regular. solo para cocktails
This should never have been called a rum
It’s the rum and coke go to choice, you know you have ;-)
Just for cleaning, dissolving or murdering purposes. Boozy with no taste.
I use it in orange juice or coke and it is fine. I never have tried it straight up or on the rocks.
Even worse than the Bacardi Gold. More like vodka than rum.
I won't touch it normally - they call it prefume in Puerto Rico and no one local drinks it. I've heard they make their rums with GMO sugar beets, but I have not been able to verify that. Harsh and flavorless.
Good marketing, horrible rum, tastes like window cleaner
Drank this stuff in High School. It pretty much turned me off rum for most of my life. Now that I know that there are some real gems out there, I'm making a comeback!
Advertisement is key, which is perfectly clear when trying to drink this 'rum'.
As a spiced rum guy, this one is meh for me. It's kinda funny because the first time I really ever drank it was Bacardi light and juice mixes.
As far as your classic rum flavor goes, it hits the nail on the head. That's about it. It's too harsh to drink neat or iced and there's not really much point to taking shots of rum.
That leaves mixing, which it does well. Great for mojitos, coca cola and several other tropical mixers like rum runners.
Personally I'm not really a mixed drink person except the occasional mojito (sometimes dirty). I'm probably not the best objective source since my personal preference colors my opinion of a rum that you can't really sip neat or on rocks, unless you're desperate and I'm never that desperate.
Es war in jungen Jahren der erste Rum und natürlich mit Cola. Mehr gibt es nicht zu sagen.
Do you know those restaurants were you ask which rum do have? And they answer: Bacardi, can i order a vodka sprite please!
Good for cleaning paint brushes, not much else. A favourite of the working men’s club.
This rum is incredibly poorly conceived and executed. I do not know what gave Bacardi the idea to label this as 'superior' rum, but it's not.
It is quite cheap, though.
Usually everybodies first experience with Rum. Please don't use this as your basis for Rum, this stuff is garbage. It's essentially rubbing alcohol that they sell at the liqour store instead of the pharmacy.
