Bacardi celebrates the release of a Limited Edition Vintage Rum to the general public. To pay homage to 150 years history and heritage in Rum craftsmanship, Bacardi rested the finest rums for twenty years. Those batches were then carefully blended and rested again in sixty year old Cognac barrels to create uniquely rich, smooth and fragrant blend of rum.
The Bacardi MMXII Vintage is a highly aromatic, full-bodied and generous rum with a mellow flavour. It has an expansive nose full of fresh tropical fruits and sweet aromas, balanced with soft vanilla and a smooth oaken character. Its inviting aromatic qualities are enriched with notes of sweet Caribbean Honey and fragrant fruits leading to a long pleasing finish with a smooth background of oak.
Just 1000 finely crafted, hand-blown crystal decanters have been created. Each individually hand finished and numbered. The presentation case has been sculpted in soft kid skin leather with a built-in plinth to showcase the Decanter. Enclosed is a booklet detailing the story of the creation of the Ron Bacardi de Maestros de Ron, Vintage MMXII rum and the BACARDI family Master Blenders that joined together to create it.
