Bacardi Gran Reserva Diez
Tired of getting the same old bottle of whisky or cognac for your friends or family members, why not show them you’ve really put some thought into their gift this year and treat them to a bottle of Bacardi Gran Reserva Diez. It’s a ten year old aged rum, aged under the Caribbean sun which means it matures 3-4 times as quickly as a scotch, so this drinks more like a 21 year old scotch – for a fraction of the price!
