|The Facundo Rums|
For all of us that were involved in the process, it is a real honor to be told by Facundo Bacardi that we are all "Fathers of the new line of rum". The Facundo Rum line offers four expressions, EO, Eximo, Exquisito, and the Flagship of the group Paraiso XA (Extra Anejo) Rum. EO "Extra Ordinary" is an aged white rum that is far from ordinary. Eximo, Exquisito and Paraiso are all dark rums that boast fine lineage and flavor.
I will do a full evaluation of the line in later blogs when I have the time to sit with each one to be able to tell you all about them. It would be unfair to these rums to try and do a true evaluation at this time. I will tell you these are all extremely fine rums and a line that will be available sometime in August. They will range in price from $30 for the EO to $250 for the Paraiso. They will be available in many of the better establishments that sell our favorite cane spirits. I will have them at the Rum Bar in Key West when they do come out for all of us to enjoy.
|Facundo Bacardi and Bahama Bob Leonard|
I want to offer a heart felt thanks to Facundo Bacardi, Chairman of the Board of Bacardi Limited for the opportunity to be a part of the development and the introduction of Facundo Rum. . This is one experience that I will never forget and will always be proud to have been a part of the team that made all of this happen. I would also like to say thank you to the Bacardi Team for allowing us to be a part of a wonderful introduction ceremony for a fabulous line of rums. ;o)
