Bacardi Carta De Oro 750ml
BACARDÍ Carta Oro named 'oro' from the Spanish word for 'gold', produced in Puerto Rico and is a blend of 14 molasses-based rums. The rums are aged 1-2 years in bourbon barrels before being passed through a blend of charcoals. Formerly named 'Barcardi Gold Rum', it was relaunched in 2014 as Carta Oro.
This rum is always good for a rich taste kick and best served in long drinks such as Cuba Libre. While somewhat harsh on the nose and palate it is not intended for neat drinking but does carry expected characteristic of vanilla, caramel and light oak. It fits the role well as an affordable mixing rum.
ABV: 37.5% to 40%.
Nose: Nuts and butter caramel
Palate: Light & warming, with notes of vanilla, caramel, charcoal, toasted nuts & orange zest
Finish: Dry with a slight sweetness
