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.
There's really not much to this rum. Smells like a wet rock, but the taste includes a hint of sugarcane and vanilla. While it's certainly ok, there's a lot of better rums out there. You can easily drink this straight at 40%abv, but again there's a lot better.
Not enough flavor for my liking, I stick to the spiced if possible
I don't mix my liquors with pop! I like my drinks "neat" and this brand just sets my pallet on edge!
Good for cocktails, thats it. I do like the bat :-) it's the best thing from the bottle.
The best mixable rum. It just goes with everything easily. Try it neat with a splash of water. Mind blown. It's the simple things.
This rum is only ment for cocktails late in the evening when You can not taste anything anyway.
I can't think of any reason i would buy another bottle of this. The limon is slightly better.
If you drink this straight something is seriously wrong. It tastes like hairspray. It's fine mixed and it is very cheap to buy. So it's price is actually quite fair. Still, for a few dollars more you can get far better white rum. My rating for straight tasting is a 3; mixed it's a 5.
Unless you are Starsky and Hutch
Bacardi and coke....do it.....do it.
Reading some of the reviews of this rum is akin to watching a elementary school kid get beat up by the entire high school football team. Is it a well-aged solera or single barrel best sipped neat from a glencarin? Of course not. Does it make a drinkable rum and coke which all of us have ordered at a bar and was probably responsible for some great nights/times with friends? Absolutely. Just pad your ratings and move on and quit taking yourselves so seriously; It's Bacardi Silver.
Fine rum when mixing with cola or used for cocktails.
Good for mixing. That's about it. Not much else to say about this one.
Always wondered why this rum is so popular. Taste like rubbing alcohol but cheap.
Don't expect to drink this straight, I find it is best in cocktails like the mojito and other citrus based drinks. Keep the Coke with the goldrum
yes, it's for mixing only. i'm not impressed with anything.
I could not drink straight.
...and rate the white, ubiquitous, highly commercial, insanely marketed Bacardi Superior for what it is: a mixing rum. By my knowledge it never pretended to be anything else than a party mixer. It is indeed to blame for the fact that most of the world thinks rum cannot be drunk straight, but that tide is changing. And mixing it does fairly well. Of course there are many rums that make better cuba libres and cocktails, but you could also do a lot worse. Try the generic ultra-budget-bottle just labeled 'white rum' on the low low shelf of your supermarket. That's the really nasty stuff.
Klasika medzi rumami. Vynikajuci do Mojita. Priemerna kvalita za rozumnu cenu.
I've been drinking Superior with Sprite and limes for years. Nice light drink on the go. Rate it however you want, there's a time and place for everything.
El más clásico ron para tomar con coca. El invitado a todas las fiestas que no puede faltarte
Excellent pour mettre dans une voiture en panne d'essence.
Da bere come base per cocktail e niente più. Buono per preparare un buon Cuba libre
Legendary rum for cuba libre. Mixed with coke it really is not bad. But you can spend you money better with choosing on of Havana products, I guess.
Once upon a time, I would have given this rum more credit and a higher rating. However, after sampling many much better rums over the years, I just can't give it any more than I did. Do I still drink it? Yes, but only rarely and in certain drinks. It's still acceptable for entertaining a group of drunks at a party, but I would recommend reaching for something better if it's for friends or family.
big brand but not the best. bit of a chemical taste wont buy this again
