Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I tried the Bacardi Facundo Exima side by side with the Bacardi Reserva Limitada. I really struggled to pick a winner.
This has notes of honey, caramel, oak, and some bourbon. This was just a tad sweeter (neither were really that sweet, however). I think they both tasted fairly similar overall (no surprise since both are Bacardi products).
Overall I prefer the taste of this over the Limitada, and this is certainly the better value. But it was close. Shortly after I tried this, I tried the Facundo Exquisito, and I think that's a really nice step up.
I have come to learn that Bacardi actually does make some delicious rums that are made to be sipped. Eximo is most definitely one of those rums. No sweetness at all, dried fruits, a hint of tobacco and lots of depth and character with a pleathora of different flavors. This is a very complex rum and it is overall a very nicely done rum. Goo'oood stuff Maynard! And you better say you like it neat or else you might wanna put on your pantyhose..
Fantastic rum for the price. One of the best rums at the $70 price range. It will not disappoint. It is a little stronger in taste than the Facundo Exquisito which is my number 1 pick by far in rum, however if you let is sit in ice for a few minutes it looses some to its strength. If you like strong rums, this is one of the best at an affordable price. The bottle is beautiful and classy. It make the perfect gift for a good friend.
Do not use for mixed drinks, it is too good for that.
Terrific vanilla notes that linger on the tongue. Nice nose with hints of caramel.
Nice and smooth. Can use more time, but overall very pleasant.
This one has a nice bottle.. But i belive that you should have it there.. It has a good taste.. But not good enough to zip.. And as i drinkirum there is many cheaper that would do the trick.. The color is nice.. The smell is pleasant.. But thin.. And have a hint of ethanol.. The teste i low on sugar. Almost like a burbon.. And the finish fades away awful quick.. Another year in the drum would probably do the rum some good.
This is a Bacardi product from their higher end Facundo line. It was offered during the last 30 - 45 mins of First Midwest Rum Fest in Louisville held in December 2014. It's only available in San Francisco, Miami and New York City. Smooth, complex and moderately sweet. Definitely a sipper and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
