Bacardi Oakheart is a "spiced spirit drink" - it's below 37.5% alcohol by volume so while it may be a 'flavoured rum' in the US it is technically not a rum in Europe, hence the 'spirit drink' descriptor.
For non-Spanish speakers, the 'la casa del murcielago' phrase which arcs around the top of the label literally translates as 'the house of the bat', and appropriately surrounds the black and gold Bacardi bat on a red circle logo. The bottle itself has a pitted, hammered metal surface while the red 'est 1862' graphic on the skirt of the black cap looks like it was borrowed from the London Dungeons horror show.

Marketing behind the brand promotes the 'Oak and Coke' bar call.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 12/09/2011

Appearance:

Clear, golden with bronze highlights.

Aroma:

Buttery vanilla and liquorice with fudge, cinnamon and crispy pasty.

Taste:

Buttery toffee and vanilla with delicate spice. The slight sweetness is balanced by cracked black pepper spirity notes.

Aftertaste:

Medium finish with lingering cracked black pepper, vanilla and spice and fudge. Hardly sophisticated but beautifully balanced.
