Default Casa Bacardi

Is there a way to get my hand on more Casa?? I was told that Bacardi in the Bahamas has some. I had frends going that way, but they never made it to Bacardi.
Thanks John

Casa Bacardi 8 yr is easy to find. Are you perhaps refering to Casa Bacardi 20 yr.? I have never seen a bottle myself.

Is it really any good?

I have yet to find a Bacardi product that makes me happy to have them as a distillery.

Most of the time, I find the bat to simply delude the name of rum and over-advertise to the point that most Americans can refuse to try any "real" rum and can't escape the allure of that rot-gut.

Take a good look at that Bacardi 8 label and I think you'll find that the label doesn't say Aged 8 years, as it would have to to be an age statement. Bacardi claims that " Ron 8 Años," isn't an age statement but a label name.

Hmmm.
US regulations from the TTB website:
"(a) Misleading brand names. No label shall contain any brand name, which, standing alone, or in association with other printed or graphic matter, creates any impression or inference as to the age, origin, identity, or other characteristics of the product unless the appropriate TTB officer finds that such brand name (when appropriately qualified if required) conveys no erroneous impressions as to the age, origin, identity, or other characteristics of the product."

TTB regulations are enforced with a wide brush, the usual answer is that they have so many things to do they can't do everything.

Angelsword,
Where have you seen the Casa?

Justbob,
I like it. It's one of the rums on the bar that seems to be going down, so others are drinking also.

edward, what exactly makes you think that bacardi 8 is not aged for eight years? the taste?
exerpt from bacardi8 website:
"... the distillates are kept in old small casks made of white oak which are famous for their rich aroma. the distillates then remain in the casks for at least eight years, benefiting from the warm and mild carribean climate as well as from the aromas of the wood thar encloses them."
(found at www.bacardi8.com)
