BACARDI Facundo 10 year old Eximo 40%
Rum, Puerto Rico, 70cl, Ref: 5650
This very eloquent rum bears the name of Bacardi’s founder: Facundo. Whether on the nose, palate or finish, this 10-year-old rum never fails to set a strong pace from the attack and beyond, titillating the taste-buds as it goes. It could be said to be marking out its territory. Growing increasingly complex, it also proves to be particularly generous
Profile: lively and generous. Notes of heady flowers (geranium, lily), burnt wood and apricots. The palate is tangy, almost hot. Exuberant throughout.
- Appearance : orangey copper with glints of mahogany.
- Nose : voluptuous, fleshy. The initial nose is marked by notes of black liquorice, cloves, emery cloth, candied oranges and flambéed banana. Deeper in, lie heady flowers (geranium, lily), burnt wood and apricots. It lingers with aromas of tobacco, Russian leather and walnut oil.
- Palate : powerful, lively. The attack is sharp, to say the least. It can even feel acidic, and very spicy. Yet it quickly develops a creamy vanilla edge. Exotic fruit (mango, pineapple, passion fruit) make for a lively mid-palate. It gradually becomes chocolatey and earthy (moss, mushroom). A touch of hydrocarbon heralds the finish.
- Overall : long, generous. Its fruity and floral exuberance jostles for attention alongside its spiced and roasted temperament. The same exotic fruits from the palate make a strident comeback. They are coated in sandalwood and wild flower honey. Retro-nasal olfaction is undeniably floral (vetiver) and the empty glass woody and roasted (tobacco, coffee).
- The brand
The brandThe brand with the bat logo was created in 1862 in Cuba by Don Facundo Bacardi Masso, a Spanish immigrant and descendant of a wine merchant. In the days when rum was pretty rough on the palate, Don Facundo was the first to produce a well-balanced delicately-flavoured rum thanks to a blend of white rums filtered through charcoal. When Doña Amalia Bacardí saw a colony of bats in the distillery, she decided to choose the animal, considered to be a symbol of good fortune, to represent the brand. The quality of the rum’s flavour was to inspire a number of cocktails such as the mojito, daiquiri and Cuba libre. Today Bacardi rum is the most award-winning and most popular rum in the world.
