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.
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...
Average rum which mixes well in a cocktail. The rum itself lacks flavour, but it's suitable to drink
Such a shame that most bars (at least where I live) seem to consider Bacardi Superior to be the gold-standard of white rums, so offer only this or a nasty house option.
It's not the worst spirit you'll ever encounter, but it definitely belongs masked in a sweet cocktail and nowhere else.
Great for making mixed drinks. Nothing bad about it.
Nothing to do with rum. Just some commercial tasteless waste. Wouldnt even mix this in my drink
Persoonlijk vindt ik deze rum geen smaak hebben, je kan net zo goed pure alcohol in je cocktail gooien
Maybe there will be a day that I will drink some good bacardi rum, becouse I see they have many options that are reviewed here, but again this is barely dinkable for me, even with cola, and brings me so much pain when I see that people buy it on some parties to give some alternatives to rum lover and god damm, they are so wrong with that oprion
Final verdict: I will not buy it again
After all these years, having tasted complex and masterful cane sugar spirits, I should detest Bacardi Superior. The OG rum to my generation, whatever, it's (nearly) everywhere and (almost) in everything. Old reliable. Can't say I've knowingly had it in decades, but it was in the first Cuba libres I drank, and my cousins had it on hand at the vacation house. "It'll make you go blind," I was told. I think they meant the 151, but the hangover was blinding. Nuff nostalg.
Don't hate this rum. It's a reason why your beloved rum is so popular to begin with. And yeah, avoid the stuff if you have a selection to choose from, but this - and in all its other artificial flavors - is the pop star of North American rum.
Pop stars do annoy me, however...
Most of the awful reviews, I would wager, are from snobs. Which is fine, a bit of snobbery is definitely needed in any niche community. But I think sometimes, that snobbery can lead to hyperbole, especially when something extremely popular is the topic of discussion.
Is Bacardi a "good" rum? No. It's not very smooth, it doesn't have any unique flavor to it, and it won't impress your friends. But it's not a "bad" rum either. If I were in the mood for rum, and this was the only thing I could find, I certainly wouldn't pass it up. I wouldn't be ashamed of Bacardi the way that I have been some other rums.
I can't say I recommend it, hence the lack of a positive rating, but I can't say I'm against it, hence the lack of a negative rating. This is a generic, default rum.
This really isn’t rum. It offers no rum flavor. It is a serviceable utility mixer for blends where generic alcohol works, but it doesn’t have much value beyond that.
I enjoy this mostly when I go out for more than just a couple of drinks... mainly because at that point I don’t care what I’m drinking and it’s usually the cheapest!
Wow not so good straight. But good for mixing if you want to keep a rum bite in your rum and coke. But has a heavy burn straight.
For me, mixing makes this generic rum tolerable...
Keep this rum in your first aid kit to disinfect wounds.
Horrible and not good tasting at all. Drink Flor De Cana
