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.
Alkohol: 35 %
Aroma: Hřejivě kořenitá vůně, skořice, med, příjemný dotek dřeva, lehký závan kůže, javorový sirup, vanilkový lusk. (84 b)
Chuť: První dojem při poválení po jazyku je výrazně nasládlý, tělo je spíš tenké, ale chuť pak přechází do celkem intenzívní kořenitosti ( Vánoční směs koření) a vanilky. Nic komplexního v chuti nehledejte, je to rum jednoduchý, ale ne nevýrazný. (82 b)
Shrnutí: Ve své cenové třídě (litrovka už od asi 315,- Kč) mě docela překvapil svou výrazností, navíc je prostě od začátku jasné, že pijete rum.
To sweet and has nothing to do with good rum. It tastes too sweet even in cocktails. You should pass this.
Un espaciado único
Surprisingly smooth for a rum of this price range but ultimately to sweet with the vanilla overpowering all other flavours,
I get this a lot for Christmas presents, cheap but is fine fodder. :)
I like the Oakheart only with Coke .
straight it is not possible to drink .
I tried this on a recent cruise during a liquor tasting and was impressed, not expecting much from a Bacardi variety. I drank it straight up and thought it was pleasantly smooth with little burn. It had a nice flavor, although I did not detect the spiced flavor. It was inexpensive and in a pinch, I would buy it. I initially gave it a 7 but the fact that it is only 35% alcohol, I had to knock it down to a 6.
Was not impressed with this at all. It's hard to describe the taste, but it was not a good thing. I would use this a a mixer only.
Another rum-like "spirit drink" from Bacardi, not as sweet as the Spiced Golden but still tasting more like vodka with sugar & colorant than a real rum. Few notes of barrel, overall good only for mixing and quite drinkable, but far from being anything to remember.
This was drinkable but harsh for only 35%! In a bind this is something I could drink but will never buy it again.
Young and harsh but what else did i expect, that said its fine to be mixed. As for the taste neat, its raw green wood, some generic and slightly sickly sweetness followed by unidentifiable spices
with a not unpleasant aftertaste. I might buy it again sometime.
This might make a pretty good Cuba Libre, but it's not the best expression of spiced rum. There are simply no defining characteristics.
Bacardi's attempt at spiced rum is ok at a push - but Kraken or Sailor Jerry takes this to the cleaners for taste - mass market appeal for BMW or audi drivers who shop at next or think Ben Sherman is a quality brand!
This is my second choice for spiced rum.....Very smooth and sweet...
Good spicy nose, and amber color. I recommend only for rum and coke.
Not really the kind of rum that I prefer. Works ok with pepsi. Not straight or on the rocks
My Favorite brand, but not my favorite recipe. One drink or two...really sweet.
Very spiced rum
Most Bacardi offerings (IMO) are decent, middle of the road rated designed to please the masses. Rarely special, but always satisfying. I found Oakheart tasty enough as a mixer.
I stumbled across Oakheart on Kangaroo Island over he new year and choose it for my NYE drink. Drank some neat, some with some lime & dry - its a different spiced rum to what I am used to bit more of a smoky feel and has a bit more bite compared to your Captain Morgan's. I enjoyed it, if you like spiced rums I think you will too. Added bonus was I drink a lot, and had no headache the next day, coincidence? Or something more mysterious?!
Good rum with rich vanilla and caramel taste.
