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).
For cocktails you can't go wrong.
Fra den tid hvor man ikke vidste bedre
Only with cola.
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.
Too harsh for a rum blanco and not much taste. Can pass in drink but again vodka does as well...
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.
After spreading my wings trying different rums I'm mad at myself for drinking Bacardi forever.
for mix only
good for a party evening
with cola and a slice of lime it fits for parties
this is my go to rum at bars without nice rums I can always count on my Bacardi superior
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.
Avoid this rum at all cost
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.
Gets the job done.
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.
For any mixed drinks you can't go wrong with the stand by.
A good basic mixing rum for Mojitos.
If you are drinking this, you need to get out more. It is the hamburger of rums compared to prime rib and ribeye.
Easily found works well in most mixed drinks
If you have to think about Bacardi, this rum bottle comes always to my mind and it's taste....
Well, yes there are definitely better mixers out there but sometimes you need this Bacardi profile in certain cocktails. However it's not a rum that I would sip by choice or put into my cuba libre.
