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.
Strong rubbing alcohol aroma. This is dreadful stuff trading purely on the bacardi brand name. Tastes dreadful. If you like white rum then i suggest you try El Dorado 3 year old or Flor de Cana 4 year old!
Good rum for mixing with coke. Nothing to special though
This is not to drink pure. Only mixed with coke i can handel it. Even when mixed it’s stil a low budget taste😫
Economy rum. Better than college, not for middle age budget.
That's what it's constructed for, after all. No shame in that. After enduring several of these cocktails at a resort using their well rum, I had much better results requesting them made with the Bacardi.
Bacardi Superior is a classic and a staple in the rum industry.
Just swill....harsh, barely passable even in a Cuba libre
Now I'm not going to rate this as if its supposed to be a sipping rum, because its obviously not. As a mixer, its not that bad. It does have a bite, but for some reason it tastes really good in a Cuba Libre. The bite goes well with the lime. I enjoy this more than their gold. But that said, its a mixer and that's how I rated it.
Had I know that there was such a thing as a sipping rum I would have abandoned this before I turned 45. Thank fully I upgraded to a much better flavor mixing rum Appleton V/X. Sorry Bacardi, life is much better now that I have tasted what sipping rums has to offer.
Some would chuckle, but in my collection of rum I still keep a bottle of Bacardi and a bottle of the Cap'n. They don't sell this for you to sip, but there's a lot of history, and a decent rum that comes out nicely in a Cuba Libre (with Coca Cola and a wedge of lime).
Another dissatisfied customer with this bottle. Bacardi has got into the habit of just throwing bottles out as fast as possible to make money, with almost no quality.
Nothing more to say except it’s only useful as an alcohol adder that won’t ruin your drink if it’s drowned out by everything else.
Only good for mixing like R&Coke or any other punch like drink ! Cheap price
C'est fort ça brûle bref c'est vraiment pas terrible, même en tipunch...
Un ron de baja calidad que cumple la función de embriagar y pasar un buen rato con tus amigos.
Bacardi in my opinion is the staple for any base cocktail requiring a white rum. In my opinion, the rum does hold slight notes of earthly flavours which are seriously highlighted in cocktails that compliment the rum. My knowledge of white rum so far is limited to this and Captain Morgan White and i personally believe that Bacardi is far superior to Captain Morgan White as a base white rum. 6/10
While certainly not a sipping class rum and arguably pale in comparison to most of the rums being discussed in the ratings scene, I am not sure why there are so many poor comments about Bacardi Superior/Blanca rum. It's a perfectly reasonable choice when a clear mixing rum is called for. In fact its preferable to or adjunct to more flavorful, aged rums when making many cocktails (e.g a Mojito, daiquiri, hurricane, Mai Tai) because those other rums would frankly be a poor or incomplete fit. So, yes, include a Bacardi Light rum in your rum cabinet.
As an important aside, I feel a more tragic reality (in the U.S.) is that your typical off the shelf choice of a "Coke" based mixer results in a serious downgrade in your overall cocktail experience due to the notably poor contribution of flavor HFCS Coke has versus traditional sugar cane based Coke or other cola brand. Always have sugar cane based cola on hand when a cola mixer is appropriate for your rum cocktail. If you are not covering this simple use case then it erodes the credibility of any associated rum rating commentary.
It may not be the highest quality Spanish style light rum, but it gets the job done. Unlike a lot of Spanish style light rums, especially Puerto Rican ones, it actually has plenty of aroma and flavor, and is smooth enough. There's never any question that it's a rum It won't let you down in any drink. Obviously, Havana Club (I'm talking about actual Havana Club, not Bacardi's knockoff) is much better, but if you're in the US and can't get Havana Club, this rum won't let you down. Caña Brava and Cruzan (and maybe Brugal) would probably serve you better as Cuban-style rums, but if you can't find those brands, this will work. Choose it over Don Q Cristal or Flor de Caña extra seco, both of which (especially the former) are short on flavor
It's not rum. It's for drunk chicks to stick in cocktails. If you go on a date and she orders a Bacardi and coke- dump her immediately, get a kebab and count yourself lucky.
This is my go to for mojitos. I son't use it for much else but a must have.
What can I say, to me it is like most Bacardi rums, all name and no quality.
This is a rum to stay away from. Not any where near the top rums out there.
...it is terrible.
Not even good as a mixer...just spent a lot of money in commercials and co instead of the quality of the rum itself...
Shame on you Bacardi...
This worthless boiled gutter piss is an offense to the spirit: if this is your rum of choice you have no business being on this site... or consuming alcohol in general; basically don’t breed
