Bacardi Superior rum

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.

I think this was the first light rum I ever tried right after Captain Morgan. Never liked it. No flavor. Burns. Harsh alcohol. I will not drink this. Many many other better runs out there for the same price or a buck or two more.

This rum and its name do not go together at all. I really don't like the taste of this rum nor do I even like using it as a mixer in drinks. It is probably just me but do not recommend this rum at all

Living near a Bacardi plant my whole life it’s a staple name in my life. As well as a clutch bottle to depend on. I always appreciate a Bacardi superior and coke

It’s not going to knock your socks off, but it is the perennial classic. Get a well drink from a bar and it’s likely to be be Bacardi. Clearly not for sipping, it is a staple for mixing. Very old company. Very consistent taste. If you need something to put into a Cuba Libre, this is the standard.

Hier zieht nur der Name. Trinke ich nur, wenn es nichts anderes gibt. Und nur gemischt.

Ok, not for sipping. But perfectly fine in a mixed drink.

Nothing to add is just a rum to mix drinks. you won't find any that excel. It does to job and is very cheap.

in fact there is a little difference with vodka. Even you can get much better polish vodka i lower price. If you like white alcohol vodka is better option then this. But this "rum" it is not so badly, just for drunk.

The rating description for 2/10 says it better than I can: "this is the rum that makes people say they don't like rum".

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.

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.

Posted 6 months ago by daddkf from United States with 3 ratings

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.

Posted 6 months ago by scallywagg444 from United States with 16 ratings

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
