A white rum which needs very little introduction, Bacardi's Carta Blanca is incredible popular indeed, seen on backbars around the world. The Bacardi brand originated in Cuba, and the first distillery had a colony of fruit bats nesting in the rafters, hence the bat on Bacardi labels. Suitable for countless cocktails and mixed drinks. The nose is light and fresh with a little spice and pepper, quite spirity. The palate is of medium-body with hints of tropical fruit and a note of dark brown sugar and winter spice. The finish is good with smooth vanilla spice notes.
