The next step up would be Cruzan Aged Light Rum. As far as light rums go, much better than Bacardi and less expensive to boot!

Most people on TC have learned to avoid Bacardi. Bacardi is mostly just marketing hype. Bacardi 8 and Bacardi Solera are okay but it's best to avoid the rest of their line.

I put Cruzan in the "sucks" category now, with Bacardi, since Jim Beam took over.

not sure how much nuance one will discern anyhow though from a lime-orange juice (and possibly simple syrup) compound.

Don Q Silver is also good. Haven't had any problem with Cruzan, but it sounds like I need to do some taste testing.

I agree with Hakalugi and I have also parted company with most Bacardi products even though I live 20 minutes away from the bottling plant and have met a handful of very nice people who work there. It's one of our local products here in Jacksonville, Florida. For what it's worth, please know that they are a very good corporate citizen and very family-oriented. Also, 98% of the US Bacardi products are bottled here. Also, the Bacardi plant is located less than one mile from the InBev/Anheuser-Busch brewery where the majority of production (95% or more) is for the Florida market.

I suspect that the production of beer and the bottling of rum would make us one of the bigger booze-producing cities in the nation. Just a guess... So there's a research project for you if you're so inclined. I'm not gonna research that, instead I'll have a cocktail.

Getting back to poolside I like to make up a pitcher full of Bajan rum punch. Easy-peasey! Just be careful if you decide to use the diving board!
Cheers

I'm not sure if a drink with two (!) types of cream is really the best to serve around a swimming pool. I know here in Florida, it would be problematic.

And who makes this rum named "vodka"?
