Exquisito is one of four expressions in the Facundo Rum Collection, the first luxury collection of hand-blended sipping rums from Bacardi. The collection is a tribute to Bacardi founder Don Facundo Bacardi Masso.
Exquisito is a blend of seven to 23 year old rums aged in oak barrels and finished in sherry casks. It is a delicately balanced rum, combining the fruitier notes of seven year old rums with the smokier and spicier notes of 23 year old rums. This smooth blend is best enjoyed neat and offers a warm, lingering aftertaste reminiscent of raisins and toasted nuts.
Here are the tasting notes for Facundo Exquisito Rum:
Definitive yet delicately balanced, with nuances of vanilla, walnut and sweet sherry notes on a toasted oak base.
A rich, mellow character with robust notes of vanilla, dried raisens and apricots, and a hint of butterscotch.
A long, full and toasty mellow-oak finish.
Exquisito retails for about $120 a bottle.
