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.
Obviously not meant to consumed neat or on the rocks. But if you're looking to make a Rum & Coke why not. Available everywhere.
There are almost no redeeming features of this rum. It has a chemical taste that barely make you think of rum.
Bacardi Superior Rum det er en gammel flaske jeg har stående, kun når gæster ønsker en rom & cola, og jeg fornemmer man ikke ønsker rom smagen, bliver denne rom serveret.
This is a must have in your collection for making the classic mojito.period!
I'll be honest with you. Bacardi Superior is the standard (basic, bottom shelf) in white rum period. Also, it's the first rum most people have every had the pleasure of drinking. It's not tasty, that's why it gets a score of a 6. It's bland, simple, but you know what, some people like that and Superior fills that void.
I would definitely recommend this to that friend you have that says, "I don't like rum, I like vodka" or "I just want to get sloshed". There are very few other white rums that have these tasting notes (don't laugh) and can be mixed with anything, like a vodka can. Superior is perfect in a mojito or cuba libre.
If you're looking for something similar, but "different" (you know, something that does the same thing) you should try Brugal Especial Extra Dry white rum. I'd give that the same score, but it's good to have options.
The nose reminds me a bit of slightly sweetend hand disinfection products:-) the palate is alcoholic and somewhat bland. Not to be served neat, but fine as a mixer. Dont feel the need to own this product, as id rather make a drink with the outstanding el dorado 5 for just a few extra dollars

Very smooth rum
Quite possibly the worst rum in the market. Cheaper rums are available that match or exceed Bacardi Superior quality.
Classic, but poor. It has its specific mold taste to it.
There are so many better alternatives, that I can't find any reason to buy this. At least it is a straight, unaltered product. Then again so is Flor de Cana 4 Anos. Price difference is minimal. Hence Bacardi Superior could be used for larger parties but cheaper rum by other distillers will do as well.
Indispensable en la barra
The most widespread white rum that is completely unspectacular. Drinkable with a high ratio of cola but thats just because there's so little flavour that you can't taste it.
Not a rum absolutely.
Bacardi can do decent rum but this is for uneneducated masses.
Now i don`t know why they have changed this rum? i have tasted the pre-Castro one and it was a totally different rum, flavorful!.This one is like rum being made to vodka...and to me it has a chemical aftertaste that is very unpleasant. I cannot for my life recommend it, there are other real good and flavorful and not over-filtered white rums out there.
Surely it is not a beverage to drink in straight mode, but sinceraly used for coktails it is not much better.
For cocktails you can't go wrong.
You might wanna use it for Mojitos. But don't, there are several better alternatives.
Fra den tid hvor man ikke vidste bedre
Only with cola.
Yes, Bacardi is probably the biggest rum brand in the world, and I understand that at one time it was pretty good. Now it is made 100,000 gallons at a time. Big fat heads cuts. It's all about money and nothing about quality. I give it 3 stars because it works alright as a mixer when you have a lot of other big flavors in the drink, but it does not taste good on it's own. When making a drink with Bacardi, I struggle to hide the flavors. I don't know one good bartender who is proud to use it in a drink.
