Liquor Review Notes:
Bacardi 1873 Solera is considered to be their premium, single-barrel, "sipping rum." It is named for the same year as the Virginius Affair, an event where an American vessel was captured by Spanish ships and its crew executed. The rum is aged up to three years of charred oak.
About the Producer:
Bacardi Rum was founded in 1862 in Santiago, Cuba by Don Facundo Bacardi Masso. The brand became inextricably linked to Havana, the daiquiri, and the Cuba Libre (rum and coke) at the turn of the century and through the gilded age. The company was strong until the Communist takeover in 1962. The plant was relocated to Puerto Rico where it remains to this day as one of the largest rum producers on earth. Today, it has also acquired a number of spirits over recent years and today have sales in excess of $5 billion. While the original company was founded in Cuba it's totally absent from the Communist country today and headquartered in Bermuda.
