LOVE IT! ❤️ Thank you! 👍🏻 Here’s to a life full of fun for everyone...☺️
There's something oddly pleasant about Blackheart. It has a bit of an almond flavor, like amaretto.
The only problem is that you don't expect that flavor from a bottle of rum.
However, if you get over your preconceived notions about what rum should taste like, this is a sweet, spicy, and not-too-strong rum, considering the proof.
Mixes incredibly well with coke, but honestly, if you gave this to someone and told them it was a cheap amaretto, they might be more impressed than if you told them it was rum.
Overall, it's got a nice flavor and a surprisingly complex variety for something so cheap.
It's difficult to rate Blackheart on a standard scale because of its strong cherry flavor which is so unlike other rums. A nice change now and then. It has some virtue, however the cherry flavor is what keeps it off my list.
first smell and taste definitely hit me with a cherry blast, not overly powerful, but well pronounced.
Really good value for the quality and overall smoothness of 93 proof. Seems like a great bargain for lower self rum.
This is a fine rum for mixing with Coke when budget is important. A little sweet for my taste, but quite drinkable.
I would rate this above the average. It has a sweet flavor. Nice scent. Ginger Grog is very easy to keep drinking without realizing how much you consumed. Bottled in Kentucky. They have nice dark liquors out of that state.
After 15 years of aged rum tastings and after well over 300 aged rums later I ventured to try out the Blackheart rum for the very first time in my life. And the very last time. Such a burn at the end and the entire rum experience felt such like an immature rum being bottled fay too early. Flavor profile does not have any depth to it. This is a mixer rum, not a neat sipper at all. For your own sanity, go right now to your closest liquor store and buy a bottle of Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, try it out and you will never ever even think about Blackheart again.
This however is truely amazing i was really shocked with the ease of the flavor to drink. The spice is perfect. Best to me with Dr. Pepper.
It's very sweet, has a high ABV% but doesn't taste like it. Not a supper and over powers any mixed drink. But if your trying to get from point A to B and don't wanna go to something heavy like a bourbon it's cheap at $11-13 for a 5th.. 1.75L should be around 19-21. Worse case scenario, you can save it for a lady friend who doesn't know quality.
I get a real cherryish smell/taste from this rum. I honestly didn't know what to expect but I was surprised by the taste in a good way. Presentation looks like sailor jerry to me. Great paired with cola.
Worse than Blackbeard. They stock this at Class 6's on Army bases, not sure why.. It's either the low price or the female on the bottle.
The 93 proof is the first thing you notice when tasting this rum. Goes well for a mixer but a couple of dollars more will get you a much better rum than this one.
This admittedly sultry bottle of rum has been looking at me from across the room trying to catch my eye. Sure it was on the bottom shelf alongside the Admiral, as I reached for my regular go to rum she got me. I think it was the Playboy themed holiday gift bottle that ultimately drew me in. Major coup as product placement and name recognition goes. Not to mention sponsoring MMA fighters. Blackheart is poised to make a run at The Captain.
OK I digress, the flavour is decent, plenty of vanillas, sweet cherry aftertones and plenty of burn if you take it straight. Mixed with Coke, I had to get the mix just right or it tasted bitter, but at 93 proof you can mix away and still have a potent drink. Not quite as smooth as Sailor Jerry but I have a feeling they are going to mature this brand and move up to the next shelf soon.
I had very low expectations considering the price (750 ml + four glasses for $9.99). It really wasn't that bad. It was good either. Its definitely an option if you are looking for a cheap spiced rum to use as a mixer.
If you're plan is to get drunk like a pirate, this will do the job.
Blackheart is good if you need a fix, but is not so great on taste. Reminds me of cough syrup. The ABV is persuadable, but taste is really not there.
If you are looking to buy a lot of rum for a party, this isn't a bad choice. It has an average taste for a fairly small price. Wouldn't recommend it for casual drinking though, as there are much smoother and tastier options.
Received 2 bottles for my birthday. Opening the cap I was greeted by a strong smell of alcohol. Sipping it I got a pleasant taste of caramel and then a burn on the back end. Will be good with ginger ale or as a mixer.
Not my go to, but good bang for the buck. A little less cherry flavor would be great!
I couldn't find anyone to GIVE THIS TO FOR FREE. Maaaaan was this bad.
Now that I've tried other spiced rums, I've lowered this rating a notch, but I'd probably rate it 5.5 if I could. This has a mix of sweet spices without an underlying industrial off taste. It has a noticeable cherry flavor when mixed with Coke, but there are other spiced rums I like better.
Goes well with Coke and Juice. Smooth taste and aroma.
