OK I've done this a few times now and can offer more advice.

1. After removing the orange, let it age another 1-3 months. It gets warmer and smoother with time and the aftertaste mellows out.

2. Bacardi white rum is highly variable in quality. Some bottle are smooth, and some are hot and nasty. If you must use this rum, taste it first and use the smoother varieties.

3. The flavor varies a lot depending on the time of year you make it. Local farmers market oranges in the late summer are best. Imported South American oranges in the winter are sharp and citrusy.

I'm doing a 2L batch now with Valencia oranges. I can't wait to try that one out.
