Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Blackheart rum really brings out the taste of the coke ... I feel like I'm drinking a Coke and Coke with a kick
I really enjoy it mixed with Pepsi. The cost is also very low, a plus, for a retiree.
got this one time when i was broke and it came with free glasses and i loved it its stronger than captain and mixes well
i liked it. got a bottle for $14.99 vs. $21.99 for sailor jerry, thought it was just as good, had it in ginger ale
Junk rum, bought in bulk and flavored with chemicals. I don't know who is more dangerous, the people who make this crap or the people who review it without irony as if it were a quality product. Gak.
Strong, sweet vanilla taste... more like a coconut rum. Great with pineapple juice. Not a high end brand, but the bottle art is rad. A fun rum.
I gave this one away. To me it tasted too much like syrup. I couldn't find the taste or flavor of this rum at all. I couldn't even drink it to get drunk.
I have drank just about all of the popular rums you can buy in the US, this is one of my favorites. I prefer it with cola. Kraken is probably my favorite, but at nearly half the price and 93 proof, it's hard to beat. I love the cherry flavor. It lasts longer too because of the intense flavor and the proof, you don't have to use as much.
My husband has always been a rum drinker,me,not so much. My go to has always been beer. He begged me to try his new flavor (Blackheart) while I knew I wasn't going to like it anymore than any other rum I WAS WRONG. Now I always choose Blackheart. We choose to mix it with Caffeine Free Diet Pepsi and it really brings out the cherry flavor. Also with Gatorade in the summer is quite tasty. We have gotten a few friends hooked that absolutely love this rum.
93 proof drink to get drunk. Nice female pirate on the label.
I put this in the same category as sailor jerry and the captain. Good mixer…has a bit more of a cherry aftertaste than Captain Morgan
Being a rum lover and more so with Spiced Rum. I was abit unsure about Blackheart. Its priced in my area at around 17 dollars bit have to admit the packaging is attractive. Featuring a pirate lass just asking you to taste her rum. So of course I had to indulge. The aroma is to me strong and lasting. With a combination one comes to expect with spiced rum. When i swirled it in my glass it showcased some nice legs. Then upon first taste i was a bit unprepared by how much I enjoyed it
Another review from my blog...edited for length and content and formatted to fit your screen...
The black cherry and vanilla so many reviewers went on and on about is not very strong at all when sipped. This rum is far from overly sweet. Is Blackheart sweet? Yes there is some sweetness. There are some very cherry notes hiding in the mix. The cherry is more noticeable when mixed with cola than sipped on the rocks. The spices in Blackheart are fairly subdued. There is no peppery heat to speak off. It comes out very Dr Pepperish on it’s own and even more when mixed with cola. i like to do my tasting neat or on the rocks and that is mainly what i am doing with Blackheart. There is a little bitterness lingering in the finish along with a subtle vanilla taste. Afterall Blackheart IS 93 proof! At the same time there really isn’t much burn at all. Honestly there is surprisingly little burn considering Blackheart is 46.5% alcohol.
I think Blackheart is okay as a sipper but nothing special. It is good though. Blackheart shines in any version of a rum and Coke. Because of the bitter tail i would avoid Diet Pepsi with Blackheart Spiced Rum. Stick to the regular non diet versions of your favorite cola with this rum. Blackheart is an ok sipper but there are far better….and FAR worse. Mixed with Coke Blackheart is stellar!
In the end i’ll leave you with these wise words in regards to Blackheart Spiced Rum “I’m a pepper,he’s a pepper, she’s a pepper,we’re a pepper, wouldn’t you like to be a pepper too?” Come on, sing along!
This is great with coke...a nice vanilla and to me i taste a sweet cherry flavor.
i am a absolute 90 proof drinker. it cuts close to Sailor Jerry.. but better!
Ok, so for starters I was informed that Blackheart was distilled in Puerto Rico which is contrary to my friends here indicate. In doing a small amount of investigation my sources in Puerto Rico seemed to be correct on its origins.
Blackheart is supposedly distilled at the distillery where Captain Morgan was made until it moved to one of the other Caribbean islands.
This is a very fine spiced rum that has notes of vanilla and is smooth tasting. Great for Cuba Libre.
I’ve noticed like several other Puerto Rican rum distillers their prices have increased since Hurricane Maria. Honestly I’d have to admit that it tastes much better that the price I paid 2 years ago.
Kind of like sailor jerry mixed with a little blackness in my heart
Very smooth, great with Coke and lime. Love the Pirate girl!
I absolutely love this rum - straight or mixed. The subtle, but noticeable cherry finish is the most noteworthy characteristic of this rum, which I believe is why it pairs so well with coke (as it makes it a cherry coke ; mix it with a cherry coke and the cherry flavors are robust and smooth). It's not very expensive, it tastes great and is stronger than many upper shelf rums. This is truly a diamond in the rough.
I really enjoy Blackheart....different than Sailors and has a punch to it!!
Im going back and forth between and 5 and 6 for this. I picked this up for $12 with an attached coupon that made it $8 so I really couldn't pass up at least trying this. I would pick this up to bring to a gathering so you can make drinks with it. It has a very heavy vanilla and cherry flavor to it, artificial flavors for that. Definitely not something you would want to drink on its own, neat or on the rocks.
This has the strangest black cherry cool-aid taste to it. There wasn't much of a mouth taste to it, but (for me) the chest burn is almost insatiable. I'll have to try it again as a mixer as most people here have suggested, and rewrite this.
As a weak drinker this is perfect!! It’s sweet and smooth with little bite. It smells so amazing. I absolutely love it so much. I just wish it were easier to find.
Very sweet rum that is strong on the cherry taste. Gave it a shot because they sponsor mma and I support brands that invest in my hobbies. If you like cherries then you will enjoy. Mayne mix with coke but likely won't solve the sweetness if you are opposed to that.
