Question Bacardi & Blasphemy

At 37,000 feet, there wasn't much choice in rum. So there an impromptu tasting of Bacardi Silver was held, albeit while I had a bad cold and after having gobbled a chili cheese dog at the airport DQ and a good hoppy beer in the airport bar.

Y'know what, the Bacardi Silver wasn't at all bad. Drunk straight, it didn't have any real flavor (blind folded, I don't think I would've identified it as a rum) but it wasn't as harsh as even good vodkas can be. It mixed well with the Canada Dry gingerale. I remembered Bacardi Silver as much worse. But now I'd say it was an approachable neutral spirit. I don't know if it should rate it as a "rum" in anything other than legal definition, because it was missing so many of the qualities that I expect in a rum (like, y'know, tasting like rum). But I'll give it it's due. I will give it another try when I don't have a cold to see what it's like.
