Specifically, is Bacardi Superior Original Premium Rum kosher for Passover? The label doesn't say so, nor does it say that it's kosher in general for that matter, but since it has a sugar base, wouldn't it be kosher for Passover?

the tension seems to be betwen the common sense side -- anything manufactured needs to be labeled explicitly K for P and the internet side (the one wiki page on which an unknown respondent said s/he called Bacardi and they said that the product was K for P without a label). The underlying ingredients question would concern some as a slippery slope argument. – Danno Apr 5 '12 at 12:35
