What about Bacardi?



Its absolutely horrible, I don't like it, and many respected mixologists
don't like it.

why do you like it?
oh I am sorry.

just because something is popular,
doesn't mean its good.

Bacardi 8 is fantastic. I do agree that all their other products are rubbish though. I've never tried Barcardi before, that's all

Be afraid, be very afraid. I was just going on about this stuff last week. What is that flavor...horrible, just horrible.
They should change the name to BRUTAL.

I have three bottles of rum in my bar that I have never opened. I think they must be horrible. Lahaina, Sailor Jerry and Bacardi 151. I don't know what to do with them.

Captain Morgan Parrot Bay and Castillo (any). Flavored rums are awful in general and with Castillo, you really do get what you pay for.

A few overrated rums:

-Pyrat XO and Pyrat Pistol (both taste like Big Red gum)
- 23 year Ron Zacapa - (I swear it's 90 percent corn syrup)
-St. George Agua Libre Fresh-Squeezed Rum (I liked it at first until I realized that it's swill compared to the great agricoles from Martinique)
-Hudson River Rum (made by an otherwise great whiskey distillery that should keep their rum away from their whiskey barrels)
-Malibu Pineapple (a mere shot gave me a nasty headache)

Really, are you a Bourbon drinker? While JD is technically not Bourbon, it's pretty close. The last couple of times at Tonga Hut, Kelly's mixed me a Bourbon Special from Remixed. It was a pretty darn good cocktail.

I think Bourbon can be a great base for a Tropical, it's a nice change of pace from Rum. Maybe it's the Curacao in the Mai Tai that's not blending well with the JD. The Orgeat should be OK, since that's an ingredient in a (Bourbon-based) Eastern Sour.

Ol' Jack is actually a Tennessee whiskey. It also makes a cruddy Manhattan (unless it's Gentleman Jack).

You guys are tough.

Now while JD isn't my go-to whiskey, it's perfectly decent booze.

Also you might look down on Bacardi, but it's probably what they're using in your Tiki-Ti Ray's Mistake and Trader Vic's classic Mai Tai. (Isn't the TV-branded rum essentially Bacardi ??)

Used to be a Whiskey Man, I liked Canadian Club & Crown Royal then.
as a former Bartender,Bacardi was the stock rum for many bars,you had to go top shelf for the good stuff.

I thought TV's rum was Cruzan, but I could be wrong.
