Default Review: Bacardi Oakheart Smooth Spiced Rum

For this review, three friends and I performed a side by side tasting comparing Brinley Gold Shipwreck Spiced Rum with the Bacardi Oakheart Spiced Rum and the standard-bearer for the spiced rum category, Captain Morgan’s Original Spiced. Each of these rums is built on the foundation of aging in American oak barrels, and each of these rums seems to walk the path of a vanilla and caramel rum accented by fragrant spices which compliment the rum but do not to dominate it.

Hey Chip - Just getting around to responding to your review on Oakheart.

Man,... I swore I'd never buy another Bacardi product after discovering fine sipping rums via the prodding of a close friend. They were a revelation to me on what a Rum can really be,... and what my palate was expecting a Rum to taste like back in the day. So now I LOVE RUM,..... mostly neat over a cube. But all I saw was Bacardi way back then,... and cheaper rums attempting to compete that I figured could only be worse (...and they weren't things labeled Plantation, Diplomatico, Zacapa, El Dorado, Doorly's etc., etc.) So Bacardi pretty much monopolized the market back then and put me off of Spirits altogether. It was all just Aviation fuel to my palate and in my mind. So for decades, beer and wine were pretty much the only things in my alcoholic beverage wheelhouse. And I could only despise Bacardi all the more for what they did to dampen my past culinary possibilities once I discovered REAL RUMS. And I am still harboring a considerable amount of animosity towards them..... Grrrrrrr. Then along comes your review. I resisted, but my Rum buddy demanded we give the Oakheart a try once I showed him the review. Man, I am really getting tired of eating crow with my Rum. But for the money, I'll have to say this inexpensive mixer has found it's way into my galley. I still sneer at it though,... every time I reach for it. I hate Bacardi. Grrrrrrr!
