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
My mum has a bottle of this in the cupboard, I’m pretty sure she uses it for cooking. I think this rum should be used for cooking and not much more than that as it is drinkable but just barely. It doesn’t have any enjoyable flavour, if it is all you have and you’re headed to a party you might as well bring it because it is still alcohol, but no one will be impressed.
This is always what I thought rum was in the old days. Clear, virtually tasteless save for the alcohol tingle, and certainly unfit for sipping. Really, this adds too much harshness even to mixed drinks. Fine if all you want is a cheap mixer, but I wonder how many people read this that it applies too. There are much better white rums to employ.
If you’re looking for a room that will act as a vodka replacement, look no further. Bacardi light is much more flavorful than vodka. But, when I think rum, I don’t think vodka replacement. I don’t understand why Bacardi runs this rum through a filter, to purify it. The fact that it is clear has no appeal to me personally. However, you could do much worse in the liquor world, and even the rum world. Do a blind taste test sometime and you may be surprised. Personally I’ll take Ron Del Barillito or Havana Club (the Cuban varietal) anytime, but Bacardi has its place.
