Purchased the Entire Facundo Line!

I am a fan of the Bacardi brand because of their amazing history and the integrity behind the brand to make the world's best rum. Yes, I am a fan, but will stay true to my "unsophisticated pallet." This rum is "ok" when consumed "neat," but best when poured with a "Mexican Coke" in my opinion. The packaging surpasses the actual product.
The Neo is one of the better light rums I've tried. Oak, sugar cane, vanilla, almond, and pepper.
A little expensive for a light rum; I prefer the more affordable Vizcaya Cristal and Diplomatico Blanco. But still, this is one of the better light rums I've ever tried, though the score may seem a little low because I prefer aged rums.
I received this as a gift for my birthday. I've read it was an aged rum that has been filtered to take the color back out. It is definitely interesting. Not as smooth as what I normally like. Probably would not buy it again once this first bottle is finished.
