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).
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.
This is the first rum I ever tasted, I was around 10 years old and accidently drank one of my parents Bacardi & Coke instead of my own regular Coke. Even at that age I somehow knew there were better rums out there and never went back.
Its decent to mix with coke/cocktails when you don't want to add any flavour, but besides that I can't think of a reason to buy it.
Words cannot describe the unadulterated contempt I have for this poor excuse for a rum. As an impressionable young adult, this 'rum' turned me off the whole experience until I re-acquainted myself with the elixir of my teenage years Captain Morgan. That in turn moved me back in the right direction towards decent, and finely well balanced sipping rums. Save yourselves the displeasure - stay away from Bacardi.
There is a reason its sometimes the only option one may have at an uncivilized establishment it is the Budweiser of rum. No one ever got fired for serving it too the best of my knowledge and nor is it worth fighting for so its a safe bet for the barbarians at the gate.
It's a great rum, for students. Great name, low price and available almost everywhere. Best with coke and lots of lime. And your best friends. Women beware!
It's not a very good rum - no question about that. But for many of us it was the first rum we tasted, in a mixed drink somewhere. i know it's what got me interested - so it can't be all bad...
Impossible à boire sec et son odeur n'est pas top ! Ce n'est pas une boisson pour un amateur de rhum, mais avec du coca, ça peut convenir aux gens qui veulent se soûler rapidement pour un prix raisonnable... :)
Unable to drink straight and the smell isn't good ! This is not a drink for a rum lover, but mixed with coke, it may be suitable for people who want to get drunk for a resonable price... :)
Sugar: 0 to 2 gpl. This was my go to rum when I was a Rum and Coke drinker many years ago in school. It's definitely a mixing rum, but there are much nicer rums on the market. It has a petroleum smell and harsh taste which is why it's always mixed. It is a standard bar rum, but not in my bar. I don't own any and if offered this I order beer.
