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.
Way too much vanilla in this rum which impacts the rum taste so much that you might forget you're drinking rum.
Very good light spiced rum. Better than Morgans spiced rum .
It's fine if you haven't got any better. The taste is smooth but simply not the smooth taste i prefer.
Love this rum, nice, light and smooth, good for drinks and neat.
lekkerste van alle Bacardi lekker met cola en betaal baar
They serve this at most of the bars around here. For a club rum it's one of the better, but still not good enough.
Betaalbare rum in de categorie van Captain Morgan..
I know, i know. I should try more Bacardi`s and grow in to this at least for me new wave of putting clear rums into spotlight.
I don`t like Bacardi`s rums whatsoever, but this one was brought to me by an friend who did not know this so, im just glad it was this Oakheart and nothing else.
Taste is really different from white bacardi, really nicely spiced and i was so suprised about the set of flavours and smokeyness they have in this one.
Colour is nice and bright, also sent is nice and not hitting too hard. Really nice for bacardi lovers who like to spice it up a bit.
With coke it worked, but i prefer my rums straight so. Just an opinion.
A dark smooth spiced rum. I tasted this at a party one time and had a bunch of negative thoughts prior to the tasting. I enjoyed at the party and decided (due to price!) to purchase a bottle. I am very pleased that I did. Not only is it a very smooth rum, but has a nice flavor as well. Not overly sweet, a good balance of vanilla and cinnamon. I drank the bottle on the rocks with Coke. I did my neat tasting and again was very surprised how smooth it was. I feel this rum can stand on its own with the rest of the pack.
Spiced, kjøpt på Flesland
I gotta say, I don't hate this stuff. If you're just mixing it with coke, it's kind of sugary garbage. But if you use it to add some character to an overly dry, or bland rum, it's quite satisfactory (5/1 ratio - shitty rum/oakheart + coke). Worth having a bottle on hand in case of emergency.
It is very enjoyable. Better than Morgans Spiced and Sailor Jerrys. Not a patch on Foursquares though
Such an overbearing artificial flavor. Pure rubbing alcohol when poured, molasses aroma only after. Skip this and all other Bacardi products.
In my limited experience, Oakheart has a lot of the characteristics that made me switch to darker rums- character, flavor complexity, sweetness, spiciness. More sophisticated pallets might say its too sweet, but i really enjoy it! Goes especially good with diet pepsi, which might help with the sweetness complaints.
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.
