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.
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.
...has taken a once reputable brand and sunken it to the depths of Davey Jones' Locker. The rum that I grew up drinking, is no longer the same. In the late seventies and early eighties this rum had flavor and a bit of nose. Now it is an astringent smell of alcohol wafting from the bottle and the burn of unrefined swill. Being the largest brand worldwide has done nothing to assist this product unfortunately except lower the price. There are better rums at comparable prices, please skip the Bacardi offerings and look for the others.
If this is superior to anything, I'd like to see that. Undrinkable even mixed. Such a harsh and unfavorable taste, yet many people seem to love it. Not my cup of tea in the slightest.
I wouldn't drink it but would use it to clean the floor... Not a white rum fan
If someone only tried this, they would never drink rum again..I try to avoid anything with the name Bacardi attached to it..an insult to rum drinkers
Schmeckt mir überhaupt nicht, für cocktails nicht optimal. Selbst mit cola nicht so gut.
I think bacardi used to be a good rum. Many years ago. It is a light rum. I think that being so popular today the company doesn't bother doing good rum anymore. With is a shame as being the pouring rum in many many establishments.
This is the worst rum i have had. Why is This the best selling rum in the netherlands? I also prefer gold rums.
Today, I have ordered a Bacardi rum hoping for something at least passable, but then I got this. It was somewhat bland, like drinking water with ethanol. It was more like vodka than rum, and that is just sad. There were moments when it tasted like a bubblegum that was chewed for an hour or so and it was not pleasant at all.
I can see this being served with some fruit juice, possibly cranberry or orange, but other than that pour it down the drain and buy yourself something worth your money and your taste buds.
lets be honest, this is probably the last rum you would choose to enjoy. This is to get drunk, and for that it works great
Very bad, non rumtasting drink, taste almost like vodka. Even bad for your coke.
I am a devoted Bacardi white Rum drinker. The new Superior Bacardi is making me rethink drinking Bacardi at all. I began drinking the tried and true. White Bacardi "Light" years ago in Miami. I prefer the clean fresh taste over the new Superior which tastes like I'm drinking the engine of a race car-Harsh!!! The review below mentions a vodka like taste. The best boozes are the cleanest and easiest to drink. Bacardi white-light or not at all!
This is a really rough drink, and only if needed then but it
The only thing I like about this rum, is the style of the rum bottle. But seriously I do not understand, why this Rum is so popular. Spend some less money to get an unlabeled Rum with same taste or spend 1-2 more € to get Havana 3yo to get a better taste. So I really do not understand, why this stuff has such a large market share.
Strong but unpleasant taste with smell of nail polish remover... and of course no colour what is just boring.
Drinkable in tea and some juice, but hard to accept on the rocks or with cola.
I'm really disappointed... :(
This is what i used to drink a while back until i discovered decent rums !! It seemed good ? at the time with pretty crap cola , Luckily for me i found a treasure trove of fantastic rums from several different parts of the world and have made it my mission to "sample" as many of these as i can in the future !!
All of Bacardi rums are garbage not worth drinking
I mean I don't expect much from a cheap mass-produced rum but come on Bacardi, you have to cut the heads and tails off somewhere. The nail-polish remover smell make it hard to even down this one, fortunately the (lack of) taste is not as bad as the smell would make you think.
Not a totally rancid flavor... good for taking shots to drop panties at a college frat party.... not much else.
Minule mi po ňom prišlo nevoľno. Možno sa hodí do miešaných nápojov ale na obyčajné pitie určite nie.
Too harsh for enjoyment. Not suitable for consumption.
You first try this s%€t and wonder years later why you like rum now. it is not because of this
There are almost no redeeming features of this rum. It has a chemical taste that barely make you think of rum.
Bacardi Superior Rum det er en gammel flaske jeg har stående, kun når gæster ønsker en rom & cola, og jeg fornemmer man ikke ønsker rom smagen, bliver denne rom serveret.
I'll be honest with you. Bacardi Superior is the standard (basic, bottom shelf) in white rum period. Also, it's the first rum most people have every had the pleasure of drinking. It's not tasty, that's why it gets a score of a 6. It's bland, simple, but you know what, some people like that and Superior fills that void.
I would definitely recommend this to that friend you have that says, "I don't like rum, I like vodka" or "I just want to get sloshed". There are very few other white rums that have these tasting notes (don't laugh) and can be mixed with anything, like a vodka can. Superior is perfect in a mojito or cuba libre.
If you're looking for something similar, but "different" (you know, something that does the same thing) you should try Brugal Especial Extra Dry white rum. I'd give that the same score, but it's good to have options.
