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.
This is the most affordable spiced rum I can get that doesn't give me bad headaches (Sailor Jerry). I use it in cocktails. Like many of the cheaper/more budget-friendly spiced rums I've tried, vanilla is the most promient spice (both aroma and taste-wise). I'm planning to add a few just-toasted pieces of cassia to a bottle & see what happens.
Příjemný spiced rum, opravdu kořeněný. Někomu snad může vadit přílišná kořeněná chuť. Chuť bych přirovnal žvýkačce z České republiky - Pedro. K popíjení při letních večerech snad zatím nejlepší spiced rum.
Rum drink not rum. Basics. If nothing else I don’t mind a bit of oakheart
one of bacardi's best options for drinks, reasonable cost :-)
Nice sweet taste of Ron. It is good rum for drink as it is and also is good to be a mixed in a drink.
Another offering from Captain Morgan that won’t dissappoint rum drinkers who prefer the aged oak flavor. Similar to the standard cap’n silver, but with added Mollasses and sugar notes, and added oak flavor. This one goes well with a cola. Wouldn’t recommend sipping. Enjoy
So picture this, an Australian in USA goes to the bar asks what rum they have ..... guess who made a very recurring appearance ? This guy. At first I wasn't too impressed, however after a few you kinda get used to the taste , even for a non spiced fan. I did polish off a bottle whilst in Florida, good times.
To make it a little bit sweeter, I decided to mix it with maple
syrup, which made a quite good combination.
It was my first, it is nice, but too pricey in Australia.
Honestly, for the price point, I don’t hate it. It’s very brown sugar and vanilla in a standard way. Definitely steps up a cocktail a bit. I’d recommend it overall because it would appeal to most people
Gives a little extra smokiness to your usual Bacardi spiced. Pretty nice in soda. Not meant to be tried alone though.
For the price of it, this is a really nice rum and easily recpmenable. Even better without a mixer
At £16 for a litre it ok value, better rums available
In einigen Cocktails oder mit Cola trinkbar jedoch nichts besonderes und nichts für ein zweites Mal.
The only rum choice at a business event. Sweet vanilla flavor. Drinkable. Can’t see mixing this with coke . Sweetness would be overpowering
I did not expect a rating this high for a budget Bacardi rum, but this spiced rum deserves a 6. It is smooth enough to drink neat and ice cubes improve it. It is sweet with 20 gpl of added sugar, so it is not a sugar bomb. This one can also be used as a seasoning for tropical drinks.
To give you an idea how strong the taste of this one is, I used it as a seasoning for a fairly bland drink and the Oakheart flavor still dominated. It was 1 part Oakheart, 4 parts cheap white rum, and 8 parts coconut water. You get the picture?
This rum is delicious - the cinnamon and vanilla notes create a very smooth, sweet and aromatic pull with a great wood finish at the end. You can't really go wrong drinking this straight or mixed.
W cenie 52PLN / 700ml bardzo polecam. Uważam że ciężko znaleźć w tym przedziale coś co lepiej smakowałby z colą. W smaku wanilia, karmel, lekka alkoholowość.
This is a fantastic rum in my humble opinion. At just £14 a bottle it easily outweighs captain Morgan's spiced equivalent. For the price you get plenty of warm spiced notes making a really smooth rum till the very finish. Mixed with coke makes for a nice after work relaxer. Gone through a bottle just a tad too quickly but I think I can afford to get another one!
artificial Oaked rum... not my favorite. So use it for Bacardi Coca Cola. Unfortunately i don’t drink Coca Cola, so then with 7 up.
Pour faire des cocktails c'est pas mal mais pas pour autre chose.
This is ok if you can pick it up on offer at your local supermarket, not much going on here in terms of complexity and it's a little watery. Captain Morgan Original Gold is slightly better for the same price.
God att blanda med Cola.
God doft av ekfat och bränd karamell.
Ganska söt med en underton av årtal.
In terms of rum and cokes, this is one of my preferred options. I find a richer oaky taste from your Captains and coke, and a much more pleasant finish then the abrasive Morgan’s swallow. For the price range, the taste follows for mixing rums.
