Facundo Neo Silver Rum
Bacardí // Bahamas
Facundo is a collection from Bacardí named for the company's founder Don Facundo Bacardí Massó. Neo ("new") is a blend of Bacardi "library" rums aged up to 8 years that have been charcoal filtered to a clear/silver color, while retaining the flavor influences of the barrels. Note: The sirens depicted on the bottle reflect the history of the original Bacardi offices located on the port of Santiago de Cuba.
Silver RumAKA Blanco, Light, White. Rum that is usually aged (but not always) and carbon-filtered to remove any color. No specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for aging for most countries with a few exceptions.
"The nose reveals a honeyed, fruity and slightly meaty aroma with oak accents. The palate tastes a bit like a watermelon dipped in sugar, with sweet and peppery spices. There's a very alcoholic, acetone finish that overshadows most of the pleasant mellow flavors, begging the question of just how much of the blend contains older rums vs. younger that can't be more than a year if that. Not much of a neat sipper, but throw some fruit juice on it and it's probably fine."
