Bacardi CiclonHere at Spine.cx, we feel that it is important to provide the viewing public with not only reviews of frivolous things like CDs, movies, and pop bottles on the street, but also important things like alcohol. It is with that sentiment that I give to you the first Spine.cx review of an alcholic beverage: the brand new (at least to me) Bacardi Ciclon (there's an accent or something over that 'o', but I don't know how to do that. Anyway, it's pronounced "see'-clone"). It is "Bacardi gold rum infused with blue agave tequila and a natural lime flavour".

Well, I guess the first thing to do is smell it. I'll just crack open the bottle here...Mmmm. It smells pretty good. Maybe I'll just have a taste. *sip* I think we have a winner. This stuff tastes pretty damn good just on its own...I find my mind racing to think about what this would mix well with. For any of you who have tried Bacardi Limon, it's a little like that, but you can definately taste the tequila in it; not overpowering tequila, as I'm sure some of you are definately thinking, but rather the nice subtle tequila, like you'd find in a marguarita. I love saying that: Marguarrrrita! Salsa! Chi Chi Rodriguez!
Anyway, back to the topic at hand. I believe I shall try Sprite as a mix. *Pour* *Mix* And the verdict is good after the first sip. I think it's the artificial lime in the sprite that blends well with the artificial lime in the alcohol. I could really get into this stuff sitting on the beach, with a lot of hot chicks around. Or as a backup, I could really get into this stuff sitting in my room typing on my computer, which is basically what I'm doing now. It's a poor substitute for option #1.
This stuff is very smooth. Not a bad aftertaste or anything. I think I would buy it again, perhaps in a larger quantity, so I get, like, more of it.
So anyway, tune in next time for my review of Baja Tango, kind of like Baja Rosa, but made with oranges instead of strawberries.
