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.
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.
Great for large batch and frozen drinks when you don't need much flavor. Headache prone. Not for mixing although OK but definitely not for sipping.
Ok - I've drank quite a bit of this over the years, mostly on cruises or resorts. It is cheap and after a few drinks it doesn't really matter any more.
erm, the rumthat put a generation off drinking rum, this is one not to drink, it has fantastic marketing, we never say it's shit....but you know it is, one for the people not into rum....37.5abv says it all...popular but far from nice...
Have tried every drink made with this stuff. Alone it is awful, mixed its ok. The only thing I can drink it in is a Mojito. I went to the 150 year Bacardi party in Boston last year after the Cocktail Summit (free tickets). I went because some heavy hitters such as Ed Hamilton was there and i wanted to pick his brain about rum. That was better than the drinks.
And she has no taste!
choose something that tastes good - not just to get drunk on.
If you want to get drunk cheaply - drink sherry - as an student will tell you, most alcohol per pence
Bacardi is by far the bottom of the barrel when looking for rum. Lacks any quality flavour and is far from smooth. For a white rum there are many other better options out there. Never on my bar.
Nothing wrong with Bacardi. It's an easy staple at almost every bar, so if you're looking for something other than rail, it's a good bet. Nothing fancy, just straightforward. Works best with a citrus addition, my fave is lime.
Nose: Clean, hint of cane.
Taste: Light mouthfeel, light taste. A very good thing when you consider this is the go to light rum for all mixed drinks. Consistent and safe bet. I would not drinks this by itself.
If you are drinking this, you need to get out more. It is the hamburger of rums compared to prime rib and ribeye.
