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.
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).
Maybe one of the worst of the market right now... could be mixed with coke but that's it. I would say almost all the other rum are better !
Tried this at a friend's house in Cuba Libre since that's all he had. Probably what most restaraunts serve as well. I can't fault it for what it is. I think people are too harsh though. i can't believe I'm rating it above the current average rating of 3.7! I would never spend money on bottle and would never try as a sipper . . . and you shouldn't either! So many others are so much better, some for less $$$.
Look lets not get too harsh, this is not a great rum and a bit cloying but its ok as a mixer and would suit drinkers with a less mature palate, straight...... no dont do it
Bliver udelukkende brugt i drinks og kun så længe lager haves. Til trods for at det er verdens mest solgte hvide rom, findes der mange der er meget bedre.
Bacardi is not a bad company. They grew from a bat infested shack where they distilled their first rum (hence the logo) to a major corporation with their product available in almost every liquor store globally, however throughout the growth process they lost their trademark touch on what they consider their lower level products. They are mass produced and tailor made for people who know nothing about rum and just want to get drunk.
I'm not saying that Bacardi does not have good products, they do...... Just not this.
I'm surprised about all the super low ratings this has been getting.
Didn't we all start out with beer and a Bacardi and coke when we where younger?
Yes, as you get older in get into all the different rums which are way better than this it really is a minor rum.
But for all the good memories from years back I still give it a 5.
My rum adventures started with this one right here. The most popular brand (in my country). I liked it then, but when you try some aged rums you quickly want to forget this one. It's ok for mixing but you can buy some better rums for the same amount of money. Ok for a white mixing rum, clean testen. 5/10
I use this rum to put in daiquiris or cocktails. It's rum for mixing and it mixes well. It doesn't add an overpowering flavor so you can still taste the strawberry or what ever its mixed with.
A rum I have used in mixes and cola for many years, unfortunately it has changed over time it was a better rum in the 60's and 70's or maybe my tastes have changed with the times and exposure to better rums.
Great to keep on hand for large pool parties where you don't want to waste great liquor on those who are unappreciative of the quality.
Bottom of the barrel yet I know cheaper rums that are better. Yet if you are looking for a name brand only and want to get drunk on a slightly cheaper rum then here you go. Slightly bland and only used as a mixer. For those friends you are not sure are friends.
it's party fuel. with deals for 2/20$, this is the stuff to buy when pouring lots of mixed drinks at a college party. Other than that, no purpose.
