Puerto Rico | Spiced

Launched in 2011, Bacardi Oakheart is the newest addition to the extensive Bacardi collection.

Great to mix it with soda. Or to drink it on the rocks. Very nice flavour. Typical spiced rum.

Rum should not taste like melted margarine but Bicardi Oakheart does. There is almost a faint trace of rum flavor underneath all that butter flavor but searching for it while trying to enjoy a glass is not worth it. I eventually finished a 750ml bottle instead of pouring it down the sink but can't say I'm proud of that. Some of you seem to like Oakheart. Why??

This rum has a bit more of an oaky flavor with strong vanilla undertones. A good rum for those coke nights.

What is there to say really that hasn't already been said for this rum? Bacardi Oakheart is a fine rum for the price. I bought this one out of curiosity hearing good things, and in my location in LA for the great price of a measly $11 I couldn't lose. It's a good economical rum, it tastes of the sweat oak barrel, a bit of honey, as well i get other flavors such as a taste of coffee at the end. However it does come with a bit of alcohol burn initially but over the duration of drinking it. most of it fades but still a bit lingers, i assume some of it is due to the charring the barrel which as advertised gives this rum its smoky flavor. Overall If you're short on cash and need some rum in your life you should pick this up/

This is definitely one of those where you get less than what you pay for... And it's not an expensive rum. I thought that local Aussie Bundaberg spiced couldn't be eclipsed in the garbage category but this one strolled right in, slurring its words and spilling its drink all over everyone else.
I like using Bacardi white and gold in cocktails but I'm not sure I'll be trusting them again for a spiced offering!

Awful artificial vanilla flavour. Way too sweet because of this. Boozy. Targeted to masses. Better to be avoided completely.

Maybe good for someone that like cheap spiced rums, but for me it is not worth any more of my attention that this review and that one time that I've bought a botlle of it and regret it to this day...

Final verdict: I will not buy it again

I like spiced rums, and had higher hopes for this one. Sweet on the nose like apricot and overripe banana, there's an oily mouth feel with a syrupy sweetness. It's drinkable in a rum and coke, but not something you would drink straight or feature in a cocktail.

Unsippable, like gasoline in a desert. Mixing damn well with a cola is its saving grace

The smell is very aromatic to caramel and oak. Alcohol you don smell so strong.
The first sip is soft and you feel the spices in your mouth with a small aftertaste of alcohol thats is covert with to much of caramel.
Overall a oke rum but for me to spiced and to sweet.
