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.
Easily consumable in a bind
Oakheart has so much potential and yet doesn't deliver on taste or drinkability. This is a last resort for rums, not even good for mixing...and forget about sippin'.
This rum isn't for everyone, that be said, you stick this guy in the freezer for a nice while, you'll be cracking open a pretty tasty bottle, coke, of course goes great with this rum, I have tried it with A&W rootbeer too, definitely makes the taste pop, sharing this with good people definitely helps, but it also has a decent aroma, for the price (175lL) is pretty affordable as well, but other rums can be cheaper with the right sale.

I really like the Smokey-spice flavor! Great bottle for drinking neat and mixing with coke or ginger beer. Very cheap to, Great bottle to empty quick without feeling bad its gone.
As far as spiced rum goes, Oakheart is good in my opinion- as long as your mixing it and not expecting much. To me, it’s a nice alternative to a regular rum and coke or Cuba Libre. I’m sure there are other recipes out there too if you like a little spice in your rum.
Probably deserves a 5, but is getting an extra point because it’s Barcardi and so I expected it to be more crap. Definitely a mixer, not recommended for sipping.
