In 2011 after numerous “flavoured” expressions and a couple of rum “liqueurs” Bacardi finally released a Spiced rum to the market. Except at only 35% they aren’t legally allowed to market it as a Spiced rum so it becomes a Smooth and Spiced Spirit Drink.
Oakheart takes its name from the charred white oak barrels that the rum, sorry spirit drink is housed in. The rums contained within the blend are aged between 1-3 years. Bacardi were hoping upon its release that the tagline “Oak and Coke” would be heard in bars all over the world. I don’t think that has quite worked.
