Bacardi Superior rum

Bacardi Superior

Puerto Rico | Light

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.

Only with cola.

As a spiced rum guy, this one is meh for me. It's kinda funny because the first time I really ever drank it was Bacardi light and juice mixes.

As far as your classic rum flavor goes, it hits the nail on the head. That's about it. It's too harsh to drink neat or iced and there's not really much point to taking shots of rum.

That leaves mixing, which it does well. Great for mojitos, coca cola and several other tropical mixers like rum runners.

Personally I'm not really a mixed drink person except the occasional mojito (sometimes dirty). I'm probably not the best objective source since my personal preference colors my opinion of a rum that you can't really sip neat or on rocks, unless you're desperate and I'm never that desperate.

Es war in jungen Jahren der erste Rum und natürlich mit Cola. Mehr gibt es nicht zu sagen.

Good for cleaning paint brushes, not much else. A favourite of the working men’s club.

This rum is incredibly poorly conceived and executed. I do not know what gave Bacardi the idea to label this as 'superior' rum, but it's not.

It is quite cheap, though.

Usually everybodies first experience with Rum. Please don't use this as your basis for Rum, this stuff is garbage. It's essentially rubbing alcohol that they sell at the liqour store instead of the pharmacy.

White, this rum is only for mixing with cola. Nothing special.

I've only drank two different rums ever but by far it is the best (referring to the silver variant); being I've only tryed captain morgan, and the gold variant of Bacardi so my opinion probably means pretty little. Other than that I mainly drink cognacs, brandys, Irish whiskey, or burbon.

Bra drinkbas, bör finnas i grundutbudet för drinkmix hemma tillsammans med Havanna 3. Men som dryckesbedömning är det inget som går att beskriva. Men en klassisk rom och cola med denna flaska är klassisk.
