How long can you keep an unopened bottle of Bacardi?

You can keep an unopened bottle of any kind of Bacardi Rum for as long as you want without fear of it being unsafe to drink. Many of the best (and most expensive) rums have been "aged" for many years, but this aging is done in special wooden casks in a carefully controlled climate, not on a shelf in your kitchen.

Bacardi (or any other kind of rum) that's been in the back of your liquor cabinet for 15 years will usually taste significantly worse than it did when you bought it, but it's always safe to test it out and there's a chance it'll taste just about the same, or even better.
