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.
Didn´t like it! Maybe you can mix it with coke. Too harsh!
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.
There are so many better alternatives, that I can't find any reason to buy this. At least it is a straight, unaltered product. Then again so is Flor de Cana 4 Anos. Price difference is minimal. Hence Bacardi Superior could be used for larger parties but cheaper rum by other distillers will do as well.
Surely it is not a beverage to drink in straight mode, but sinceraly used for coktails it is not much better.
If Bacardi Superior was all the rum i had to drink, i would switch to bourbon. or kerosene for that matter
erm, the rumthat put a generation off drinking rum, this is one not to drink, it has fantastic marketing, we never say it's shit....but you know it is, one for the people not into rum....37.5abv says it all...popular but far from nice...
It only drinkable in a pinch but other than that I stay away from it rather have don q Crystal.
A good rum. Been here and enjoyed for years. Tasting small batch craft rums kinda blows it away. But for consistency and quality still great. A great mixer. Much of it's flavor filtered away
The standard mixer you should always have a large bottle of this in your cabinet when you want cocktails that let the ingredients do the talking. A Bacardi Superior Screwdriver is my favorite.
Its Bacardi, i dont need to say anything else really, everybody's tried probably the biggest standard white rum in the world. Its not great, but as a company the heritage is there and no doubt they'll be making rums forever. Try some more in the range though!
This is a light and smooth white rum that mixes well with any mixers, may it be soda, cranberry or Coke.
Probably a decent wound antiseptic or floor cleaner. Almost impossible to cover its harshness and no redeeming rumminess to speak of. It's popularity speaks only to its marketing ability and not mutch else. Might as well use vodka if this is the only rum at hand, at least the flavor is easier to mask.
Its clear. Its on the shelf. I suppose you can take it to a party and mix it in stuff and get drunk. Thats fine, just don't try to drink this rum straight or on the rocks...just don't do it. I don't really have any use for it in my cabinet because there are far superior mixers for the same or better price. The issue really is that it has no flavor other than a barely noticeable citrus. I suppose if i had to choose between Bacardi Superior and a standard Vodka then I would choose the Bacardi Superior. Thats about all I can say for it though.
I’m old enough that I was in the first wave of people who could drink when they lowered the drinking age to 18, back in 1973. This was the rum that everybody drank. Older and wiser now, and I do not drink it anymore!
As white rum goes, it’s not terrible. In a mojito or daiquiri, it works. It’s flavours are not exceptional, and it won’t accent any cocktail, but it gets the job done as well as a cheap, mass produced rum can.
Few aromas, stingy alcoholic note. A little better and less stingy than Bacardi white carte blanche.
Seems necessary to have on hand - only used for mixed drinks for company that doesn’t actually like rum. Not bad in a fresh mojito
Rum vhodný pre svoj charakter len do miešanych napojov. Neodporúčam piť samotný,príliš mu nepomôže ani limetka a ľad. Naozaj ho beriem len ako barmansku pomôcku.
Go to rum when I want to have at with a coke. Add a splash of roses lime juice to add a little tartness.
ron blanco, suficiente para un Mojito regular. solo para cocktails
This should never have been called a rum
It’s the rum and coke go to choice, you know you have ;-)
Just for cleaning, dissolving or murdering purposes. Boozy with no taste.
I use it in orange juice or coke and it is fine. I never have tried it straight up or on the rocks.
