Bacardi Anejo Cuatro 700ml
You can’t trust everything you read. Despite the age statement, we have it on good authority that some of the components in Añejo Cuatro 4 Year Old Gold Rum are actually up to 6 years of age. And that extended barrel ageing baking in the Caribbean sun creates huge complexity and depth. Pour a tot and you’ll find it oozing with clove-studded pomander, rolling tobacco, campfires on the beach, Chardonnay barrels, honey roasted almonds, toasted oak spices, vanilla cream and a smooth Cognac-esque finish.
With its turbulent history and instantly recognisable bat logo, placed on the bottle by Doña Amalia Bacardí as a symbol of good fortune, Bacardí is a rum legend. Between distillations the family fought for Cuba’s freedom from Spanish rule, resulting in Emilio Bacardí Moreau becoming the first freely-elected Mayor of Santiago de Cuba. When the US introduced prohibition, Bacardí invited Americans to huge parties where Cuban rhythm, good times and their rum flowed freely, cementing the brand’s worldwide fame. However, in 1960 Fidel Castro confiscated Bacardí’s assets and the family fled into exile. The Cuban spirit lives on, still under the same family lineage, still with the same party vibe, but now based in Puerto Rico.
