BACARDÍ is celebrating the unveiling of its premium rum portfolio, consisting of four new rums: BACARDÍ Añejo Cuatro, BACARDÍ Reserva Ocho, BACARDÍ Gran Reserva Diez, and BACARDÍ Gran Reserva Limitada. The collection reflects the upward trend toward premium spirits consumption, with the pioneering rum company taking the lead in the newly developing category.
Each of the new rums provides its own luxury drinking experience. The youngest, BACARDÍ Añejo Cuatro ($19.99), is aged for a minimum of four years and offers a refreshing flavor profile of vanilla, toasted oak, honey, and clove. BACARDÍ Reserva Ocho ($29.99) is aged for a minimum of eight years and has a velvety body with tastes of butterscotch, nutmeg, and dried apricots. BACARDÍ Gran Reserva Diez ($39.99) is at least 10 years old and a sipping rum characterized by a balance of caramelized vanilla and oak with the fruity flavors of banana, pear, and melon. Last but not least is BACARDÍ Gran Reserva Limitada ($100), a limited release spirit, with a rich and complex taste that’s best enjoyed neat.
