Facundo Eximo Rum
Bacardí // Bahamas
Bacardí's Facundo collection honors the legacy of the company's founder Don Facundo Bacardí Massó. Eximo, "to free," is intended to symbolize the company's desire to create rums "unrestricted from rules and conventions." Breaking down the bottle design, the sun rays symbolize the ones that can be seen on the floors of the company's offices, while the "X" refers to the minimum age of the rums contained within (10 years). A blend of medium and full bodied rums is combined to age in cask, a process which sets this release apart from its other rums which are aged, then blended.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
"Brown sugar, honey, and something reminiscent of root beer dominate the entry flavors. Roasted coffee, nuts, vanilla and sweet milk chocolate enter the mix, but there is a slight chemical funk in the finish in place of clean hogo flavors. Adding some ice might dissipate this a little and bring the spices out."
