Bacardí Superior, “the original white rum,” is made from a recipe based on the one created by Don Facundo Bacardí Massó at the original distillery in Santiago, Cuba in 1962. Rums are aged separately in ex-bourbon casks for one to two years. They are then blended and charcoal filtered for clarity.
AKA BLANCO, LIGHT, WHITE. RUM THAT IS USUALLY AGED (BUT NOT ALWAYS) AND CARBON-FILTERED TO REMOVE ANY COLOR. NO SPECIFIC TYPE OR SIZE BARREL REQUIRED. NO SET TIME REQUIRED FOR AGING FOR MOST COUNTRIES WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS.
“A bit alcoholic on the nose, with some aromas of vanilla and cherry. The cherry becomes more medicinal on the palate, with a strong note of charcoal and rubbing alcohol. Definitely not one to sip neat, it’s more reminiscent of cheap vodka than rum. Take the advice of the label, which states it’s “ideal for mixing.””
