Bacardi 1873

Hello All,

Quickly wanted to say thanks to all the members, esp. Mr. Hamilton, as I have gained much information from these discussions when deciding to try a new rum (this is what led me to Ron Zacapa :cool: ).

Now, I was recently cleaning out a closet and came across an almost empty bottle of Bacardi 1873 that I bought in the late '90's in San Juan. From what I remember (and from tasting that last little bit) this wasn't a bad sipping rum, nothing special but not bad. I see that Bacardi has an 1873 Solera that's made in Mexico (my bottle wasn't), does anyone know if this original non-Mexican 1873 is still available?

Rgds,

Steve

Did 1873 Solera start out as Bacardi Gold Reserve? I bought a bottle of Gold Reserve in Mexico in the early 90's. It was in the same type of bottle as the 1873 Solera, but came in a black velvet bag (like the purple Crown Royal bags).

I can't confirm that progression of Bacardi products but it doesn't sound unlikely. Many Bacardi products have changed over the years especially when they are produced in other countries.

I've seen the 1873 in San Juan, but the Anejo which I used to love, is not made in Mexico, so maybe the 1873 will suffer the same fate.

Bacardi 8, sold in the US, is made in the Bahamas.

Ed,

So this means that the Bacardi Anejo (made in Mexico) that we have in stores here in the states, has changed? I had a bottle about a year ago and thought it was very nice, if mild.

I would have to Agree with Ed, the Bacardi Anejo I bought from Mexico was much Smother and had more Flavor than the Bottles we get in the US.
