Facundo Paraíso XA Rum
Bacardí // Multiple Countries
Bacardi has been keeping a secret. Scouring through the warehouses of their distilleries in Puerto Rico, Mexico and The Bahamas they collected the oldest and the best barrels they had and created the “Facundo” line named after their founder, Facundo Bacardí Massó. Paraíso is a blend of rums aged 17-32 years and is almost completely devoid of Bacardi branding.
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".
"Surprisingly muted on the nose. Eventually, notes of green bananas, vanilla, fresh herbs, and clove present themselves. The palate is a very different story. It starts out quite bold and sweet with an unexpected blast of guava followed by vanilla, burnt sugar, tropical fruits, and pipe tobacco all without a trace of the heat on the nose. The sweetness is intense, very pervasive and lingers for quite some time, while the finish is balanced but quiet. Overall the spirit is very complex but lacking the balance this price point demands."
