This restricted version rum from Bacardi dropped final summer time, however, hey, hotter climate will likely be right here earlier than it — with Nationwide Pina Colada Day hitting on July 10. (Now !)

Bacardi Tropical is, nicely, precisely what it feels like: white rum (from one in all Bacardi’s massive factories in Mexico or Puerto Rico, to make certain) flavored with (pure) notes of pineapple, coconut, and guava. Clearly designed with beachside consuming in thoughts, right here’s the way it tastes.

The outcomes are wholly unsurprising: The nostril kicks off with very candy pineapple and an undercurrent of coconut milk. If there’s guava within the combine, you may’t scent it, although a imprecise industrial observe, pushed by the underlying rum, can also be clearly evident. The palate affords few surprises, once more coming off as exceptionally candy and heavy with candied pineapple notes (first) and Coco Lopez notes (second). Once more there’s a touch of that extra industrial character nicely evidenced on the end, nevertheless it’s largely hidden beneath a ton of sweet sugar.

All advised it’s a rum that’s designed for a transparent and particular function — one which it succeeds at completely nicely — however which is able to hardly change something in any respect in your worldview.

70 proof.
