Whilst Bacardi is now a World renowned Brand, it's origins are much more humble and interesting than most might expect. After an earthquake in 1852, Don Facundo lost everything - including a son and daughter to a subsequent cholera outbreak. If that wasn't enough, his company went bankrupt soon after. Rather than give up, he took his work home where he focused on creating a smooth and elegant rum to replace the then crude, harsh cane spirits. The rest, as they say, is history.
The nose is light and fresh with a little spice and pepper, quite spirity. The palate is of medium-body with hints of tropical fruit and a note of dark brown sugar and winter spice. The finish is good with smooth vanilla spice notes.
