Bacardi Oakheart Rum Tasting Notes
Aroma: Vanilla heavy. Toasted marshmallow. Brown sugar sweetness. Faint hint of pecan.
Tasted Neat: Perfectly roasted marshmallow flavor without the charred campfire edges. Lingering vanilla. Cinnamon roll goodness over the tongue. Moderate sweetness.
I like this very much. Definitely would sip this neat or on the rocks.
Mouth Feel: Slightly thin.
Comparable Spirit: There are many spiced rums on the market. All a little varied in their spice and vanilla notes. Compare a few of these rums yourself and discover a few spiced rum cocktails in the process.
Possible Uses, Pairings and / or Cocktails:
Billed as a contender for “the” go-to aged rum for Rum & Coke (Oak & Coke). As to cocktails, the Bacardi website only links Bacardi Oakheart with Rum & Coke, chilled shot and on the rocks pour. I think it might also add flavor depth to the Rum Runner or Mai Tai cocktails.
