Bacardi Oakheart is labeled as a “smooth” spiced rum, and true to its name it’s a lot softer, smoother, and tamer than most of the other spiced rums we’ve tried. As with many of Bacardi’s rums, Oakheart feels like it was born with Coca-Cola in mind. It works fantastically in a Coke with just enough vanilla and spice to be noticeable but not too much to be overpowering.
The initial aroma of Bacardi Razz is of strong, rich raspberry and black currant with maybe a bit of cherry. If I were blindfolded, I might mistake the smell for IHOP’s boysenberry pancake syrup instead of a rum.
