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.
Easily consumable in a bind
C'est pour mixer avec du coke. De couvert au Mexique et pas cher. C est un rhum un peu fort (38%), sent le caramel et goûte un peu le chêne, mais je le compare au bacardi blanc. Boff
A friend of mine took this for me from mexico and i loved it! Sadly not available here! But i recomment trying it if you can get one!
Tried the Bacardi Solera 1873 at La Bodeguita del Medio in Guadalajara. Semi dark color, quite strong to the nose, a lot of oakiness both on the nose and taste. Bacardi Solera goes for whisky lovers, but its a far cry from flavorful aged dark rums. Mix it with Coke and it shows a glimmer of hope. Very strong alcohol taste if neat sipped.
This was the smokiest rum I have ever had. Wasn't great, but better than most Bacardi products. No flavour or bite on the swallow, smoke was in the aftertaste.
I usually go for a spiced rum like Kraken for a simple Cuba Libre, but this rum fits in very nicely! Milder taste than a white rum, and I wouldn't sip it straight, but as for a mixer, very good
