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.
Although I've gotten somewhat used to the burning sensation and distinct vodka-esque gasoline taste in rum and cokes everywhere that better rums are simply unavailable, I have to place this one at the very bottom of my list. It's like a bad lover that you keep going back to because there just isn't anyone else around- better than nothing, familiar, but it leaves a bad aftertaste. Gold is only marginally better.
Barely drinkable - do not recommend it, even for cocktails...
Not sure why this is the one rum you can get anywhere. But there is always a 1.75 on the shelf for that guest that wouldn’t know Bacardi from Myers Legend. Good for a bowl of rum punch at the BBQ.
Not bad for a mixer or cocktail and no other choice around fairly expensive for the hype
It does the job for a basic rum and cola. Cheap and tastes fine. The ice and cola mellow the bite and let a subtle vanilla flavor through.
This is a perfectly fine mixable rum. The rum of my youth. The rum of Bon Jovi's never say goodby in the back of my station wagon trying a one handed bra unhook. Its going to taste like your mixer plus booze. McDonalds shamrock shake plus Bacardi = drunk date and stained prom dress. No spices, no fruit infused orange flavors. The Rum for people who "don't need nothing, but a good time" and wanna "rock and roll all night, and party every day". I have had some bad liquor in my college years and bacardi is a treat compared to those. its a 1-10 scale for a reason folks. Backyard get together, no one will fault you for serving this.
The nightmare that some liquors confer just looking at them. And if a smell were to loft, you better hold onto your gag reflex, because the hungover midterm is rushing all right back.
Smooth, minimal aroma, aftertaste subtle sweet with a little burn. This is a decent mixer, no complaints. Sure you can find more elaborate white runs, but this is consistent
This rum won't dissapoint, won't make you too happy, it is just average and okey. Sadly, being average actually might be good enough, especially given the price, and to be fair, I am fine with this in a cocktail or a basic mixed drink like rum and coke. I however totally preffer Havana Club for the mixing, even made two daiquiris each containing a different rum and just like the havana one more, and since the price is about the same, this just doesn't get too much attention from me.
Dont drink this. Spend a few extra bucks and get something decent like kraken, sailor heck even capt. This is just bad
Für Cocktails finde ich ihn grade für den günstigen Preis sehr gut. Für alles andere jedoch nicht zu gebrauchen.
Vielleicht mit Cola trinkbar, aber auch dafür gibt es besseres.
Is this worth your money? No way. You want something cheap to mix with your drinks? Go for Havana Anejo Especial. Dont waste money on this, dont waste money for company which provides bad rums. Same as Morgan - just commercial garbage.
Everyone has had Bacardi and everyone will move on from Bacardi. It's a great option for a cheap start, but there is better stuff out there.
My basic preference for good Cuba Libre party cocktails though I dare to use more expensive rums on special occasions.
For those of you who have been following my reviews on this site, you know that I absolutely hate Bacardi and Captain Morgan. However, since Bacardi introduced a few new premium ones that garnered fairly good reviews from me, I decided to rate one of the most popular rums on this site that I have not already rated, which is this one. I also only paid $1.79 for 100 ml in a glass bottle, so plastic cannot be blamed for any bad taste here.
It smells like water and tastes like nothing! The burn going down is where it shows it's young age. This is a mixer white rum only. However, one is better off with other budget white rums such as Don Q Cristal or Cruzan Light. I have 27 white rums rated better than this one and only the vile Wray & Nephew Overproof is worse than this one. That one will make you barf, but this one won't.
It is ok for a white rum. Better than the standard low quality white rums for mixing, but can still be enjoyed with a slice of lime and ice.
No aroma/taste really. Your run of the mill rum for NON spiced. Overall mediocre. 5/10
zum mixen ganz oke! trink ich in den ferie wens nix anderes gibt. bevorzuge dunklen rum.
This cheap rum could be use just to prepare some cocktails. Nothing compare to flor de cana or cana brava.
After not drinking Bacardi for about 5 years, I’m really disappointed. The taste has changed dramatically and is not the Bacardi I remember. It’s more like a subtle methylated spirits taste now. I noticed that the Bacardi and cola cans were no longer sold here in Australia, so I’m guessing they got that bad they had a decline in sales forcing them out of the market. On the upside, a few drops of coconut essence with Bacardi and coke will see me through this bottle then onto Bundaberg Red label I think.
Could be drink in coctails but nothing special

There are so many better choices in this category...Do yourself a favor and try something like Plantation 3 star or Flor de Cana 4yr instead!
