Civil another possibility is any white by Flor De Cana. As for rumdog's query medications can do some big things to the bodies chemistry, which WILL effect a persons taste.

No I haven't. But that would make a quick explanation. The taste is not only different but so is the smell. My neighbor who doesn't drink rum could tell right away. When you compare it to a good bottle there is a distinct smell difference.

If you've gotten 19 bottles in 8 months, it's probably time to look for a new rum. There are some many alternatives to Bacardi.

Maybe this rancid smell and taste was caused by the formation of butyric acid during the fermentation process, and the unpleasant aroma can transfer over during distillation. Butyric acid can give a distillate notes of rancid butter, vomit, etc. I recently sampled a spirit with a very strong lactic acid presence that had the smell and taste of bad baby formula....not a smell that is easy to forget!

Anyway, I digress.....but it does sound like an issue that is coming from the fermentation process.

Hope you get ahold of some better tasting rum!
Happy New Year,
