Review: Bacardi Banana Rum

Bacardi Banana Rum was just released.  This is one of ten flavored rums in their current product line.  If you thought they had more, they did at one time, but several flavors have been dropped.  Bacardi Banana starts with a rum base made from molasses, and a single strain of yeast, Le Levadura Bacardi.  After fermenting for 30 hours in closed fermentation tanks, the fermented molasses is split.  Some is column distilled, and some beer distilled.  Each is aged separately in charred American white oak barrels previously used to age bourbon.  Once mature the rums are blended and filtered through a mix of charcoal made from tropical woods and coconut shells.  Natural flavors are infused before bottling at 70 proof.  While this is Bacardi’s first banana flavored rum I have already reviewed 7 other banana flavored rums.  I can’t wait to see how Bacardi Banana Rum compares with the others.
