Aged: No age statement
Product of: Puerto Rico
Launched early 2019, Bacardi Spiced replaces Bacardi Oakheart and the two products are extensively the same, but with Spiced better dovetailing into the Bacardi range. "Made with rum, aged and unaged, mixed with a secret blend of mellow vanilla flavours, and natural nutmeg and cinnamon spices."
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 25/03/2019
Clear, burnished coppery amber.
Vanilla and spicy Eccles cake (pastry, baked currants and raisins, cinnamon and clove).
Light-bodied and slightly sweet. Cinnamon, clove and black pepper spice with smoothing vanilla fudge.
Medium length finish with cracked black pepper, vanilla, spice and fudge.
Lightly spiced easy-drinking with just enough richness rather than being overly sweet. It's a shame this is a mere "spirit drink" at 35% alc./vol. rather than being fully fledged 40% spiced rum.
