Proof66 Notes

The Bacardi Limon is one of the line of popular flavored rums; it's made with natural lemon essences.

The 2012 Beverage Testing Institute found it to have a "acid phosphate diet 7-Up like finish" in a lukewarm review. This sentiment was upgraded to "lemonade poweder finish" in 2013. 

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.

The combination of Limon and Coke tastes exactly like fruit loops. Try it, and you'll never un-taste it! ;) (It's a combination I love, though, aha)

Drinking straight I can totally get why some people taste pine-sol. Makes a great mixer though.

It tastes like someone drank a bunch of Bud Light and pissed into a chlorinated aluminum can of Pine-Sol. I don't get the allure, really. It seems like alcohol should either get you completely trashed, taste amazing, or be interesting because of its super high quality. This doesn't do any of that.

Im only giving it 4 stars because this is the very first spirit that got me in the liquor game. In reality its 3 stars makes an excellent mixer and is a great gateway to rum. There are tons of better rums this is a good starting point if you are deciding to experience rum.
