Review: Bacardi Tangerine Rum

Bacardi Tangerine Rum Image - CopyBacardi Tangerine rum will be introduced later this month.  I was able to get my hands on a bottle a little early.  It is one of 16 flavored rums they create with rum distilled in Puerto Rico.  They start with molasses and a single strain of yeast, Le Levadura Bacardi that is fermented for 30 hours in closed fermentation tanks.  The fermented molasses is split with some 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 then infused before bottling in Jacksonville Florida at 70 proof.
