Bacardi Carta Blanca, White Rum, 37.5%

I do love miniatures.

It’s a handy way of trying out spirits – in this case Bacardi’s entry level white rum – Carta Blanca.

Now although it appears clear & transparent – this rum is aged for 1 to 3 years in bourbon barrels – the resulting colour has been extensively filtered out  – often using charcoal.

This potentially strips out some flavours too – so what did I find?

Well the nose was very soft & muted. A slight spirity element with a little fruity funk.

This followed into the palate – which had a rich mouthfeel – before it began to open up on the finish.

A pleasant prickly tingling, a touch of fruitiness, a touch of vanilla & a little spice.

Very easy drinking – nothing offensive or off here.

I can see why it’s the perfect blank canvas for cocktails.
