Default Bacaradi Hits

When I hear the name Bacardi I often think of their "misses" (gold, white, and flavord) as they pretain to the real rum. I recently did a tasting of some of the Bacardi rums I have in my cabinet (Bacardi 8, Bacardi Solera and Bacardi Anejo) and have to say that not all their portfolio are "misses". I have been enjoying the Solera lately since it has a very dry flavor and its hints of orange, chocolate and leather. I am anxious to try the Ruby Rey once I can locate an online shop that will ship to my area or my local. I did notice the one common theme between all these rums is the fact that they are not made in PR like all the others. They are made in Mexico and the Bahamas...maybe this has something to do with why I like them.

I hear you Blue..I live in the land of the BAT. They do produce good stuff..It's curious to me that it's hard to find the good stuff here, My favorite is the 8..Which is produced in the Bahamas..And they are closing that facility.

What else if anything, besides the 8 was produced in this facility?

I found it's one of the few Bacardi rums I can drink.

Too bad it is closing.

The Bacardi Solera and the Gold Reserve are what got me started on rums. I find the two very similar, so if you've had the Gold Reserve then you are very close in taste to the Solera (They may even be the same rum in different packaging).

Do they still make the Gold Reserve? I have not seen it in any of my local haunts or online, I only see the Bacardi Gold? The Solera is made in Mexico not sure where the Gold Reserve is made.

The Bacardi Gold Reserve was discontinued some time ago I believe. They market differently country by country. For instance, the only products they are currently promoting here in Puerto Rico are their White, Gold, Limon, Black/Select and "8". If you visit their Mexico website they are promoting a much larger range of flavored rums as well as the Anejo and Solera 1873, the latter of which may well be the Gold Reserve re-worked.

If you're using my body for the shots I think the watermelon taste would be drowned out by the navel fuzz. Sorry for painting that mental image that none of you needed, but I think its safe to say Im not ruining bacardi watermelon for anyone on the site...
