If this is the white bacardi from 1909 i truly wonder what mistakes they made to make it into what white bacardi is now.. you can drink this straight, oke still not the best white rum but way better than the regular white nowadays! Please read this bacardi 😜 and make more of this!

Hecho en Mexico, not Puerto Rico, this rum has a nice flavor composition that has mimicked as close to the original recipe from the early 1900’s. With a strong Cuban influence, this rum has a fairly complex flavor that can be sipped neat, though mixing would be your best bet.
I like that this is a limited edition from Bacardi without having to pay $100 for its Reserva Limitada.

Slightly firmer due to the higher proof. This is great to add to cola and a slight improvement over the bar classic.

WAAAAAAY better than standard Bacardi Superior, but still not speaking to me.

Although this still has that iron like, signature Bacardi flavor, it is much smoother and better than the regular line. The higher percentage is also nice to see. Unlike the regular Bacardi, you can even drink this neat if you so choose and like others have said, it makes a nice Daiquiri. There are many better rums out there but this is actually fairly decent for a Bacardi!

This sample is unique for bacardi family because of it's pear, smooth aroma, smooth, sweet and fruity taste.
Everything seem to be nice and strong 7, except Bacardi's gasoline aftertaste, that spoils everything. Trust me, I love, when it burns, but burnes with funky cool aromas. This aftertaste kills the whole complexity and heritage intrest. I'd rather put more dense Jamaican dark sample with oaky flavor to my fruity daiquiri coupe, neither experience weird gas station in my mouth.

But on the other hand, if you are into classic daiquiri, you use lime juice, you dissolve sugar in it, you avoid the water, etc - this is your joice. Handy on the budget, but really hard to find. This is probably the best from Bacardi family, but definetly not the best "white" option, if it's not about daiquiries. It created only and for the prohibition cocktail. Nothing more

Avoid sipping it neat

Нейтральный запах как у мороженого, привкус чего-то хвойного, сладковатый с горечью. Очень питкий и конечно обязательно с закуской, потому как недесертные 44,5%. Наутро состояние собранное , но остатки алкоголя выводятся некомфортно долго.

It was very hard to track this bottle down.
This is significant jump above the typical Bacardi Superior. Really love the mouthfeel, which is far more velvety. I would almost go as far as to say this is medium bodied, complimented by a very pleasant fragrance.
I could sip this all day, and would happily use this as my primary daquiri rum.

44.5% ABV. Plenty of rubbing alcohol on the nose. It's hard to get past that. Fortunately, it dissipates after 10 or 15 minutes, but still pops its head up periodically (I even got an ammonia note from it at one point). Very sweet on the palate. A bit cane-y. Fruity, mango-like finish. Grapefruit as well.

Based on reviews I'd seen, I had higher hopes for this one, and it's a bit of a let-down. The nose reveals a lack of care for the distillation process, and it is rather sweet. The flavor itself isn't bad, though, and I bet it'd make a killer Daiquiri. It's really not a terrible package, and could be attractive at the right price (if it were still being made). At the end of the day I think Bacardi accomplished what they set out to create, and it kicks the pants of anything else they're currently making, but it's still not a "great" rum.


P.S. Curiously, doesn't say 1909 anywhere on the bottle...says 1888. There must have been some external marketing around this.

Love this in a mojito or daiquiri.
I use this rum when making the barcardi recipes for the mojito or daiquiri and it blends in great.
The little extra alcohol percentage gives it a nice kick.
