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
By itself, Bacardi Superior lacks complexity and isn't exactly smooth with an unrefined flavor which I can't describe beyond "sweet" because it just isn't distinctive. Sipping this rum is like using a screwdriver to drive a nail into a wall-it's difficult and the result is ugly. Don't do it. As with most light rums, this thing is intended for mixing, and it performs that role adequately. Imparts rum notes on the cocktail without overpowering the other ingredients while the mixers disguise its harshness. While there are better light rums out there, it's relatively cheap and readily available.
1/10 as a sipper, 7/10 as a mixer, with 2x weight for mixing (due to being a light rum) yields a score of 5/10 overall.
This rum is only suitable for cocktails like mojito's or something smooth like that. It's just a "night club with buddies and ladies" drink.
Probably the most famous rum in the world! A celibrity mainly due to the quantity produced rather than for its quality, unhopefully :(
It's an industrial rum, not the worst one but far from being the best.
The Ti punch with bacardi is reaaaally easy to drink. However, it's the only one usage of this rum which is not ridiculous. I don't think we can call it rum, it more a preparation for great Ti punch.
Not to use in macerations or ponch.
(My real note is 5, but I've to counter the ignorants fools who note him 8 or 9, like only an old rum should be)
