Review: Bacardi Big Apple Rum

Bacardi Big Apple Rum - CopyBacardi Big Apple rum was introduced in 2005.  It is one or 15 flavored rums they create in Puerto Rico.  It is made with molasses and a single strain of yeast, Le Levadura Bacardi that undergoes a 30 hour fermentation in closed fermentation tanks.  After fermentation the fermented molasses is divided with some column still and some beer still distilled.  Each is aged separately in lightly charred American white oak barrels.  Once mature the rums are blended and filtered through a mix of charcoal made from tropical woods and coconut shells.  It is infused with Fuji, Golden Delicious, and Granny Smith apples before it is bottled at 70 proof.
