Tasty, but not quite great
Bacardi 1873 Ron Solera is a golden rum aged up to three years in charred oak barrels. As the name suggests, the Solera system is used to produce this rum, which mixes new batches of rum with older batches each year.
"1873" represents the year of the Virginius Affair, the name of a captured American ship that resulted in a remarkable international diplomacy for peace between the US and Spain during the Ten Years' War.
