Rum may be the greatest alcoholic beverage known to man.
The last two nights, however, I’ve had to endure the over-zealous marketing gurus and branding gangs of Bacardi. Fiecrely anti-Castro, Bacardi has faced criticism and legal problems for attempting to falsely convince consumers they were purchasing rum made in Cuba rather than just marking its heritage. Boooo!
The plain ol’ white stuff is very un-Rum like. Light, clean, soft, pretty sweet and generally boring. Good in cocktails but their political allegiance gives me the bolk.
If you really must, then get busy like Gary Glitter with their 8 Year Old (sorry!). Proof that Bacardi can compete at the upper end.
