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.
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
50 pln / 0.7
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!
Only have used this in cocktails and it serves that purposed fine.
Bacardi is probably the bottom of my taste when looking for rum. Lacks any quality and is far from others...
Maybe the best known rum out there, and maybe just because of that the rum all others are compared to. Also my first experience with rum, many years ago. Still first choice for a rum-and-coke any day of the week, but not for situations where I want to experience drinking rum.
Basic rum for blender cocktails. Make sure you usequality ingredients if you want average cocktails.
I started drinken this rum with cola when i was young, so mabey the rum issent the best in the world but it is where it started with for my.
Just good enough for mixing. Nothing more. Don't expect anything good
...even my windows deserve to be cleaned by this stuff. Sorry, but this is so far away from a good rum as possible.
Went to a party and this was the only rum available. I guess I'm a rum snob and I was going to switch drinks but I decided the rum drinkers ought to be represented rather than leave a bottle unopened. I can't remember the last clear rum I've drunk. Anyway into the glass and add some ice. Here goes. Wow. Not much on taste but it's amazingly smooth. Maybe it was the good party, but I can see I'm going to have to try this one again to confirm my rating
Let’s face it! We all need a white rum for a “boat” drink, like a daquiri, and this is my first choice for such drinks. Tasting notes are inappropriate for a pure mixer, so let’s just say this rum is destined to enhance a mix of ingredients. To that end, well done!
Denne Bacardi rom har absolut intet at gøre med en rom. Den er sprittet, klar som vand, og der er ikke en eneste smag af noget som helst. Bacardi Superior minder om hvad Slots Pilsner er for øllen
Dont do this to yourself and buy better one. Not good even for drinks.
This is at best a last resort rum and coke or a rum punch mix.
Great in a cocktail, ok in a daiquiri. That's it though. Harsh flavourless not even good with coke.
This is not very good. Cut it with coke it was passible but still very strong taste of ethanol. I’d pass on this one and go out of my way to find another white rum if possible.
Not a lot of body in this rum but can make a great rum whenever mixing a batch of frozen drinks. Mix in another darker or spice rum for an extra punch...
