NEO means ”new,” referring to the reinvention of light rum.
This irresistibly alluring rum is crafted by blending light-to
medium-bodied rums aged in oak barrels. The young rums
impart brightness and youth, while the older reserve gives
NEO a smoothness and a well-rounded nature never seen
before in a light rum. After ageing, the rums that comprise
NEO are carefully filtered to remove color but not the other
components contributed by the barrel.
The embossed Art-Deco inspiration on the NEO bottle
is reminiscent of the nude reliefs on our Edificio Bacardi
|AROMA: Slightly fruity and woody, with

Made with rums one to eight years old, it’s carbon-filtered after aging to remove any color. The result is a medium-bodied, silky rum perfect for top-flight mojitos. It has a bold sugar-cane aroma and lightly sweet palate, with faint marshmallow and almond sweetness. Part of Bacardi’s special-edition rum line. - K.N.

A creamy nose incorporates dusty floral aromas with hints of banana and pineapple. The vanilla driven flavor profile is surprisingly voluptuous with a weighty mouthfeel and a soft and lengthy finish
