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.
Serious improvement needed
This is the first rum I ever bought. My thinking was that if it's so common, it must be representative of what a rum should taste like. Oh boy, how wrong was I. This Bacardi singlehandedly made me lose out on the wonderful world of sipping rums for a very long time (yes, I know it's not primarily intended for sipping). Luckily a friend had a bottle of Zaya rum, and that made me realize that rums can taste completely different and be worthwhile spirits, so much that I now mainly drink rums (bumped down whiskeys and cognac as my previous go to spirits).
I don't even know where to begin to describe this rum. It just doesn't taste like rum or anything else anyone should drink. Chemical like. Why would anyone continue to buy this? It's even terrible when mixed with Coke. Stay far far away.
The nose reminds me a bit of slightly sweetend hand disinfection products:-) the palate is alcoholic and somewhat bland. Not to be served neat, but fine as a mixer. Dont feel the need to own this product, as id rather make a drink with the outstanding el dorado 5 for just a few extra dollars
And she has no taste!
choose something that tastes good - not just to get drunk on.
If you want to get drunk cheaply - drink sherry - as an student will tell you, most alcohol per pence
So Bacardi is the most common rum that you can find second to Captain Morgan (probably even more common than the Captain). Almost every bar has a bottle of this stuff because of how cheap it is (a bottle runs about 15 bucks at Walmart) and it's mostly used as a mixer. I've never seen this on the rocks or straight up, only as a mixer for things like grog, siren tears (rum lemonade), and with cola. This in my opinion is the WORST rum I have ever had and I mean that. To me this tastes like as if someone filled a bottle with rubbing alcohol and threw a small dram of real rum in there just so they could legally call it "rum". I view this as a rum that college frat boys buy to get wasted because it's cheap. In all honesty if this is the only rum at the bar then I just switch to whiskey because I cannot stand the way this stuff tastes.
I rated this stuff a 2 because this stuff truly is gasoline like in fact it even smells a little like gasoline. When our local Pirate Fest comes to town they carry this stuff for their drinks and I always have a friend bring a bottle of Kraken or even Captain Morgan so I don't have to drink Bacardi. Seriously there are so many beautiful rum options available and if money is an issue Captain Morgan or Kraken (my favorite of the cheaper rums) are fantastic options. I won't rate this a 1 because that's far to harsh but this rum isn't suitable for anybody other than college frat guys wanting to get wasted.
i wouldn't rate it high but the rate system has one called "gasoline like". which i would have to agree strongly.
why buy this personally when the cheap bars make your rum base cocktail out of this for you already.
you know you are not going to get any quality when the brand offers dozens of products and this sits on the bottom rung within it's own brand food chain.
no expectations and i can't believe it has not proved me wrong.... time and time again, this should be just used at your local bakery for making tasty pastries.
Artificial alcohol taste. I guess 90% of the budget with bacardi is spend on marketing. Definitely not on the quality lf their low end products.
Is because all they've ever had is Bacardi. You can make do with it on a plane when you don't have other options but for the money get something better. Too harsh and no flavor.
Now i don`t know why they have changed this rum? i have tasted the pre-Castro one and it was a totally different rum, flavorful!.This one is like rum being made to vodka...and to me it has a chemical aftertaste that is very unpleasant. I cannot for my life recommend it, there are other real good and flavorful and not over-filtered white rums out there.
This is the rum that made Bacardi famous - and it's distilled just a few miles from my home in Puerto Rico! A good, all-purpose rum for drinking straight up or, as I prefer, mixed with fruit juice, like my favorite Passion Fruit!
