Bacardí // Puerto Rico
Released in 2011, and signed with the Bacardi seal 'El Ron del Murciélago' (the rum of the bat), Oakheart rum is Bacardi's latest foray into the spiced rum category. It is aged in heavily charred oak before being filtered. Spices are then added and it is bottled at 70 proof.
Spiced RumRum that is flavored with a variety of spices, natural or artificial. They can be aged, though there is no requirement to do so.
Cask TypeAmerican Oak
"The influence of charred American white oak is obvious throughout the tasting experience and lays a solid foundation for the other flavors and spices. The nose is robust showing creamy caramel, toasted oak, spices and hints of dried, dark fruits. The flavors follow the aromas in a lithe sweetness that is held in check by oak-driven spices, peppery sapidity, maple, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey and vanilla afloat in clean rum. The finish fades with spice lingering. This is a nice spiced rum that works well for any fan of spiced rum."
