Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Launched in 2011, Bacardi Oakheart is the newest addition to the extensive Bacardi collection.
This spiced rum is aged for 1 to 2 years, filtered using a proprietary process, and then flavored with various spices including maple, nutmeg, cinnamon and honey.
Bacardi Oakheart took over two years to name and more than 2700 names were considered. The winner, Oakheart, is a reference to the charred American white oak barrels that house the rum while it ages.
I have a little of the old Bacardi Spice still hanging around and this is better. The nice Oak char works great in coke or mai tais. Smooth enough to drink straight I would suggest mixing to really play with the flavors this has hidden. They worked with Coke to balance it perfectly with the cola so I keep it mostly with that.
This is my second choice for spiced rum.....Very smooth and sweet...
I love this rum! Tried it because it was on sale. Never knew it was a Bacardi product. It is my new favorite. So smooth you can sim it on ice. Slightly sweet,hints of vanilla and cinnamon. Smells as good. I don't bother with any other. Mixes with anything. Yum
Easily better than those other spiced runs. All natural. GAI. (Get after it)
Considering this rum falls under the Bacardi umbrella, it's surprisingly tasty and authentic. Not too much spice either, which means you can drink more than one glass without it being sickly sweet!
Another spiced that thinks it's an Amber. One of the best of the bats!
Sorry to disappoint the elites but this is an excellent product and the best spiced rum at this price level I've tasted. Can't ever see drinking Capt Morgan, Kraken or Sailor Jerry ever again. It might not be popular to say positive things about Bacardi but we do regular blinds with this and the results are always overwhelming either straight up or mixed. Anyone rating this below a five is clearly someone I couldn't share a glass of rum with.
À l'apéro mélangé au coca, rafraîchissant et goutu
Really good spiced rum and reasonably priced! I Will definitely get another bottle
My first rating ever because this rum is being underrated. I was looking for a mixer and this worked for me. The first three drinks with cola and then ginger ale the rest of the night. I like to finish an entire bottle before I make up my mind but no need to, I'll be buying this again.
for a cheaper rum this is quite good mixed well and had a decent taste straight
First spiced rum that I tasted and I really enjoyed it. With this price range, I'd say this is really good value for money.
Very smooth. Smells of vanilla, has a slight smokey taste to start then finishes light vanilla / caramel.
Nice oakie aroma, rather smooth taste with a slight bite, best enjoyed with cola, a drop of ice and a spritz of lime juice.
Honestly this is a good rum even excluding value. Mind you it's nothing distinguished from sub 20$ "aged/gold" rums but really it's actually quite good. Good meaning vanilla oak taste with a large amount of spice. Now it is very very smooth. No bite at all. To the point where I am wondering if I got a wrong because it's stupid good for a bacardi product especially at this price.
An excellent standard rum with a little bit extra. Sweet and nice. Excellent colour.
Works fine both plain or with some ice.
For us with a sweet tooth I can recommend mixing it with a splash of Kahlua and Bailey's for a nice sweet kick :-9
Best spiced rum I've had. Great in a noggers at Christmas or with cola . Priced right and really good for Bacardi. Traditionally I'm not a Bacardi guy but I will buy this again.
This Rum is great in coke. It adds an extra flavour with its spicy taste.
As the title says it, for me this is the best spiced rum of Bacardi.
This a cheap/mid range supermarket rum, one of the better for this price range. Can also sip this run straight, pretty impressed definetly buy again for price!
This is a light and easy drinking rum. Enjoyable with cola.
If you want a great tasting rum and cola here's what i use
Oak and Coke, very nice any time of the day ☺
Like advertised, brown sugar, vanilla, honey notes
