Bacardi Ron Solera 1873

Puerto Rico | Gold

Bacardi 1873 Ron Solera is a golden rum aged up to three years in charred oak barrels. As the name suggests, the Solera system is used to produce this rum, which mixes new batches of rum with older batches each year.

"1873" represents the year of the Virginius Affair, the name of a captured American ship that resulted in a remarkable international diplomacy for peace between the US and Spain during the Ten Years' War.

Didn't like this much at all, I don't rate Bacardi's efforts of dark rums too much

Tasted it in Mexico in a hotel bar. I expected hard Bacardi stuff and was surprised it had not that very strong alcohol presence as in the 8yo. Definitely the best Bacardi I tried until now, nothing great compared to other rums. Could be a good bar or club standart but they don't sell it here in Spain.

Maybe I just don’t like Bacardi rums. I find they all taste bland and have a bad aftertaste that reminds me of diet coke. I have tried the most premium Bacardi labels for $200 that don’t even compare to a decent $50 of Zafara 21 or even Zaya at that

Way to rough to drink straight, it has a funky taste that is not classic to Rum. Over priced to use as a mixer.

Everything i look for in a sipper...
Had the smell of good Tennessee Whiskey... Smooth to the palette with a warm , smokey finish... A soothingly delicious companion to a cabin fireplace

I got this one on sale today for only $15, which was hard to pass up. The dark colored glass on the bottle hides the orange rum inside. The aroma is of oak and fruit, with no legs in the snifter. It probably has little or no added sugar. The taste is smooth, but that after taste has quite a burn because the oldest rum in this solera ageing is only three years old. For those of you familiar with my other reviews, you very seldom hear me complain about an after burn. This after burn is quite pronounced, but I could get used to it. I would therefore consider this one as a good mixer. Adding an ice cube opens up the flavors, but does not kill the burn. An update will be posted as this rum ages in the bottle, and I would expect the same results down the line.

Update April 9, 2019: The burn is now gone with only 9 ounces left in the bottle. However, the heavy oak flavors now dominate and even come through with a half and half mixture of cola. If you like strong oak flavors, then you will love this one. If not, then stay away from this one. My rating remains the same.

Good enough for mixing when you are on a tight budget.
