Proof66 Notes

Bacardi Select rum considers itself a dark rum--indeed, it was re-labeled from "Bacardi Black"--and includes a blend of rums aged at least 4 years. We suppose that it could be used in a pinch for other dark rums, such as Myers in cocktail recipes that call for it.

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.

Hot and rough. Has a fairly decent flavor hidden in there when mixed but better rums can be had at this price.

Cheap and it shows, doesn't have a very good flavor. Seems to be for mixing more than anything else.

I guess it's ok for mixing... but when I taste it, I feel like I just got done licking an oak tree. I think they tried to accelerate the aging somehow with this one.
