Bacardi 1909

i was happy to present BACARDI 1909, Ron Superior, Heritage Limited Edition.
Apparently i was one of the first in the world... Here is a clip from the e-mail we sent from Hi-Time announcing the Bacardi 1909 so long ago:

Distilled at the Destileria La Galarza, in Mexico (the oldest continually operating Bacardi distillery), this Rum is a gorgeous work of beauty released to celebrate the journey and impact of BACARDI on cocktail culture all over the world. Packaged in a classy wooden case to reflect its exquisite quality and also insure it for posterity, the bottle is a replica of one of the oldest, authenticated bottles in the BACARDI archives—copied down the minutest detail (even the space at the top of the bottle, which was left there to allow the rum to expand in the bottle without damaging the seal while traveling in warmer climates.). This limited edition has been bottled at the original strength of 44.5% showing a full, crisp, clean flavor that reveals how simply BACARDI could have made such a lasting powerful impact on the world and become the international sensation that it now is.

In the last 100 years, the BACARDI Daiquiri has traveled from its birthplace in Cuba to the finest bars around the world where it's enjoyed to this day. This BACARDI Superior Rum Limited Edition commemorates this journey and the impact of the BACARDI on cocktail culture throughout the world. This limited edition bottle is inspired by an original design created in Cuba, 100 years ago, in 1909 and used in subsequent years

This is a must have for any rum collector, or cocktail aficionado and a treat when tasted in a classic cocktail, like this one for instance:
2 Oz Bacardi
1 Oz Fresh Lime Juice
2 tsp Fine Sugar

Shake with cracked ice until very cold, strain into a chilled cocktail glass-and enjoy.
