Better late than never right? Here are some excellent photos to recap you on an Orlando tradition thrown in downtown Orlando’s party central also known as Wall St. Plaza. All you can drink rum was consumed throughout the day at Rumfest 6. There were over 13 different rums represented for “sampling” including: Bacardi, Don Q, Tommy Bahama, and more. That combined with perfect weather and fitting live reggae music on stage made for yet another classic event. With no shortage of music, alcohol, and free spirits, you can see why Rumfest is as popular as it is here. Didn’t make it this year? Don’t worry there is always next year. Check out Wall St. Plaza for information on next years extravaganza , other upcoming events, and the rest of the photos.

Individually bottled, numbered and sealed by hand with a cork finish, BACARDI Reserva Limitada consists of the finest BACARDI rums rested in lightly-charred American white oak barrels between 10 and 16 years. Each barrel is hand selected for its durability and is periodically inspected to ensure it imparts exceptionally developed flavors to the spirit. The result is a remarkable, deep golden-hued rum with dark reddish undertones and a character symbolized by exquisite aromas of vanilla, oak and dried fruits that possesses a rich, smooth taste and velvety finish.
The conception of BACARDI Reserva Limitada was the result of good fortune when BACARDI Maestro de Ron Luis Planas was drawn to place a few choice barrels of rum aside to age.
“It was almost as if Don Facundo himself was telling me, ‘Luis, keep aside some of those barrels because from there something good will come,'” said Planas. “I began to blend the resulting liquids and the end product was something only a house pioneering in rum could develop. That is what we now proudly bring to the United States.”
According to Joaquin Bacardi III, Bacardi family member and head of the company’s business operations in Puerto Rico where BACARDI Reserva Limitada was conceived and is produced, “BACARDI Reserva Limitada was created to commemorate the patriarch of our family. Until now, to get a bottle, U.S. rum lovers had to travel to our distillery in Puerto Rico or one of just three other Caribbean islands. It’s fulfilling we can now bring this truly exceptional spirit to rum connoisseurs in the United States.”
Initially, just 1,000 cases (six 750ml bottles per case) of BACARDI Reserva Limitada will be available in the United States, with additional quantities expected to be released to the U.S. in the future, based on availability. BACARDI Reserva Limitada will be sold in select bars, restaurants and fine wine and spirits retail outlets throughout the United States with a suggested retail price of $110.00.
BACARDI Reserva Limitada has received global recognition and awards, including:
