Review: Bacardi Gran Reserva Diez (10 Years Old)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on September 27, 2019

In 1862, Facundo Bacardi and his brother José bought the Santiago de Cuba Distillery and began to distill what would become the most popular commercial rum in the world. Using a method of charcoal filtering, and oak barrel aging  along with a still of copper and cast iron, Facundo Bacardi created a smoother more refined version of the locally made rum. His smoother version of the spirit became local favourite, and over time, an international sensation. Of course, Bacardi Rum is not made in Cuba anymore, the Ron Bacardi Company left Cuba in the wake of Fidel Castro’s plans to nationalize all private property and privately held bank accounts on the Island. The Bacardi family moved important trademarks out of Cuba, and using a Bacardi owned plant built in Puerto Rico, were able to continue to build their company. Bacardi is now the largest family owned spirits company in the world.

The Bacardi Gran Reserva Diez (10 Years Old) is produced using column still distillation and  barrel aging. This rum has been aged for a minimum of 10 years in the Caribbean.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Bacardi Gran Reserva Diez (10 Years Old)

“… The aroma is somewhat spicy as a firm dusty oak presence dominates the breezes above the glass. Vanilla and treacle unravel themselves from the dry spice followed by impressions of tobacco, marzipan and more dusty oak spice. There is also a lovely touch of baking spice (cinnamon and indications of nutmeg and allspice) and an underlying sense of bitter walnut. …”

Please enjoy the review which includes my cocktail suggestion, the Rum Old Fashioned.
