You can make your Cuba Libre with dark or light rum. (Some light rums are actually barrel-aged, but their color is filtered out.) Our recipe calls for Bacardi Gold, which is a type of dark rum. It may not be as dark in color as longer-aged spirits, but it is indeed barrel-aged. As a matter of fact, the Cuba Libre recipe on Bacardi's own website is the same as ours: http://www.bacardi.com/us/cocktails/bacardi-cuba-libre.

When my wife and I were in Puerto Rico, the people at the Bacardi distillery, which does not distill there, told us a Cuba Libre is make with dark rum and Coke. Yours says otherwise.
