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.
I can't give enough praise to this Bacardi variety. I don't usually like the brand and this particular rum is in a lower tier price segment, but the flavour is well balanced, the rum is smooth, fruity and yet leaves a rich, warm aftertaste that begs for another sip.
It works straight up or with coke, and is definitely not a special occasion rum, but a most excellent everyday drink.
I was surprised , this is quite nice , especially with a good ginger beer , still nowhere near Barcardi 8 but O.K on a budget !
was told by the bartender at the Bacardi factory that this was the best Bacardi for drinking straight or on the rocks. Oak was a prominent flavor, but overall I did not enjoy.
Light and smooth with a candied anise finish that ends in a light oak. Easily sippable, but would work better as a unobtrusive mixer as it leaves a little "something" on the tongue that I can't quite reckon with.
Podobné kapitánovi... jemne sladšie. Nič výnimočné a dosť predražné. Horšie voní ako chutí.
Tasted this in the clubs a couple of times. A okay rum, but i wouldnt buy it again.
It's interesting. As spiced-rum is not my thing, I have a difficult time reviewing it. However, I feel that it's definitely worth a try.
Sugar: 43 gpl. Too peppery for my tastes and I don't really care for spiced rums. There is a time and a glass for spiced rums and I have it on hand for friends that want it. This is a low risk spiced rum. It's not great but it will do.
Tastes good with coke, it has a different taste but is also pretty sweet. I enjoyed it but wouldn't buy it myself.
Very smooth. Goes great on the rocks or straight up.
Probably one of the baddest rum experience I had till now, artificial structure makes it a bit undrinkable to me
Nice vanilla flavor. Only for mixing. Try with coke.
Good for a Ciba Libre, not to be drunk straight...
bacardi for starters...
Very sweet when drank straight, even more sweet than Captain Morgan, and it mixes well with coke.
The finish of this rum in old bourbon casks gives it a distinct flavour and its one that I really enjoy with coke. I enjoyed this rum, especially considering the price and would choose this over Morgan's spiced or other supermarket equivalents.
Shouldn't think it possible, but this one was actually too sweet.
Perhaps they've added sugar too it?
The spicyness and woodyness was alas a bit ruined for me :-/
About what I expected from Bacardi. The best I can say is it's not actually unpleasant tasting like CM.
I'm not sure.. You could drink it with your coke after you had a few good drinks before. But not as a starter.
gout épicé mais qui ne domine pas, type vanille, sympa je pense en cocktail.
Nothing to do in the category rum. I would not bestowed my worst enemy with this poor water
Amazing considering the bacardi bat on the front of the bottle. not even in the same class. low end of mixing rum. But I would but this Bacardi.
the maple brings out a odd taste which is different , it has a flavor I like and smell, has a bit of a after taste that reminds me of whiskey and not the smooth rum taste I prefer.
I will probably keep a bottle of it around for use from time to time as the odd flavor is something I like just not the whiskey like after taste and bite .
I have only had about 3 shoots of it and normally prefer to have tried a half a bottle over time before really thinking about doing a rating.
So Bacardi is running out of ideas and this is where it's taken them
