Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Blackheart rum really brings out the taste of the coke ... I feel like I'm drinking a Coke and Coke with a kick
I really enjoy it mixed with Pepsi. The cost is also very low, a plus, for a retiree.
got this one time when i was broke and it came with free glasses and i loved it its stronger than captain and mixes well
i liked it. got a bottle for $14.99 vs. $21.99 for sailor jerry, thought it was just as good, had it in ginger ale
Junk rum, bought in bulk and flavored with chemicals. I don't know who is more dangerous, the people who make this crap or the people who review it without irony as if it were a quality product. Gak.
Strong, sweet vanilla taste... more like a coconut rum. Great with pineapple juice. Not a high end brand, but the bottle art is rad. A fun rum.
I gave this one away. To me it tasted too much like syrup. I couldn't find the taste or flavor of this rum at all. I couldn't even drink it to get drunk.
I have drank just about all of the popular rums you can buy in the US, this is one of my favorites. I prefer it with cola. Kraken is probably my favorite, but at nearly half the price and 93 proof, it's hard to beat. I love the cherry flavor. It lasts longer too because of the intense flavor and the proof, you don't have to use as much.
My husband has always been a rum drinker,me,not so much. My go to has always been beer. He begged me to try his new flavor (Blackheart) while I knew I wasn't going to like it anymore than any other rum I WAS WRONG. Now I always choose Blackheart. We choose to mix it with Caffeine Free Diet Pepsi and it really brings out the cherry flavor. Also with Gatorade in the summer is quite tasty. We have gotten a few friends hooked that absolutely love this rum.
93 proof drink to get drunk. Nice female pirate on the label.
I put this in the same category as sailor jerry and the captain. Good mixer…has a bit more of a cherry aftertaste than Captain Morgan
Being a rum lover and more so with Spiced Rum. I was abit unsure about Blackheart. Its priced in my area at around 17 dollars bit have to admit the packaging is attractive. Featuring a pirate lass just asking you to taste her rum. So of course I had to indulge. The aroma is to me strong and lasting. With a combination one comes to expect with spiced rum. When i swirled it in my glass it showcased some nice legs. Then upon first taste i was a bit unprepared by how much I enjoyed it
Another review from my blog...edited for length and content and formatted to fit your screen...
The black cherry and vanilla so many reviewers went on and on about is not very strong at all when sipped. This rum is far from overly sweet. Is Blackheart sweet? Yes there is some sweetness. There are some very cherry notes hiding in the mix. The cherry is more noticeable when mixed with cola than sipped on the rocks. The spices in Blackheart are fairly subdued. There is no peppery heat to speak off. It comes out very Dr Pepperish on it’s own and even more when mixed with cola. i like to do my tasting neat or on the rocks and that is mainly what i am doing with Blackheart. There is a little bitterness lingering in the finish along with a subtle vanilla taste. Afterall Blackheart IS 93 proof! At the same time there really isn’t much burn at all. Honestly there is surprisingly little burn considering Blackheart is 46.5% alcohol.
I think Blackheart is okay as a sipper but nothing special. It is good though. Blackheart shines in any version of a rum and Coke. Because of the bitter tail i would avoid Diet Pepsi with Blackheart Spiced Rum. Stick to the regular non diet versions of your favorite cola with this rum. Blackheart is an ok sipper but there are far better….and FAR worse. Mixed with Coke Blackheart is stellar!
In the end i’ll leave you with these wise words in regards to Blackheart Spiced Rum “I’m a pepper,he’s a pepper, she’s a pepper,we’re a pepper, wouldn’t you like to be a pepper too?” Come on, sing along!
This is great with coke...a nice vanilla and to me i taste a sweet cherry flavor.
LOVE IT! ❤️ Thank you! 👍🏻 Here’s to a life full of fun for everyone...☺️
There's something oddly pleasant about Blackheart. It has a bit of an almond flavor, like amaretto.
The only problem is that you don't expect that flavor from a bottle of rum.
However, if you get over your preconceived notions about what rum should taste like, this is a sweet, spicy, and not-too-strong rum, considering the proof.
Mixes incredibly well with coke, but honestly, if you gave this to someone and told them it was a cheap amaretto, they might be more impressed than if you told them it was rum.
Overall, it's got a nice flavor and a surprisingly complex variety for something so cheap.
Hard to rate this on a scale because its strong cherry flavor is so unlike other rums. It makes for a nice change now and then. Blackheart contains a nice intensity of spice flavors, but as I said, the cherry is what keeps it away my list of favorites.
first smell and taste definitely hit me with a cherry blast, not overly powerful, but well pronounced.
Really good value for the quality and overall smoothness of 93 proof. Seems like a great bargain for lower self rum.
This is a fine rum for mixing with Coke when budget is important. A little sweet for my taste, but quite drinkable.
I would rate this above the average. It has a sweet flavor. Nice scent. Ginger Grog is very easy to keep drinking without realizing how much you consumed. Bottled in Kentucky. They have nice dark liquors out of that state.
After 15 years of aged rum tastings and after well over 300 aged rums later I ventured to try out the Blackheart rum for the very first time in my life. And the very last time. Such a burn at the end and the entire rum experience felt such like an immature rum being bottled fay too early. Flavor profile does not have any depth to it. This is a mixer rum, not a neat sipper at all. For your own sanity, go right now to your closest liquor store and buy a bottle of Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, try it out and you will never ever even think about Blackheart again.
This however is truely amazing i was really shocked with the ease of the flavor to drink. The spice is perfect. Best to me with Dr. Pepper.
It's very sweet, has a high ABV% but doesn't taste like it. Not a supper and over powers any mixed drink. But if your trying to get from point A to B and don't wanna go to something heavy like a bourbon it's cheap at $11-13 for a 5th.. 1.75L should be around 19-21. Worse case scenario, you can save it for a lady friend who doesn't know quality.
I get a real cherryish smell/taste from this rum. I honestly didn't know what to expect but I was surprised by the taste in a good way. Presentation looks like sailor jerry to me. Great paired with cola.
