Proof66 Notes

Blackheart Spiced Rum is a high-proofed, high-spirited expression meant to appeal to the "rebellious natured" drinker.

The name may stem from the pirate Captain Blackheart, which as best we can determine comes from a children's story on pirates by Margo Fallis: "My name's Blackheart and I am the Captain of the ship Treasure Hunter. I've been a pirate most of my life. When I was but a lad of ten, my father, a drunkard, sold me to a pirate for a keg of Tortuga Rum." Or it could be one of many tales of the pirate Blackheart. Certainly Heaven Hills likes the image of a sultry female pirate, "Sexy and seductive and left a trail of broken hearts wherever she traveled."

Today, a search on Google reveals the name is a common one for a pirate's costume for the male or female in varying degrees of promiscuity.

I bought a bottle of Blackheart last fall and was very pleased with the flavor and aroma. It was very smooth and the price was reasonable. This is the only rum I will buy now.

Just had some of this and I really liked it. My previous go-to has been Sailor Jerry, and Blackheart is similar in style. I taste tested it against SJ in a 2oz shot glass and Blackheart had a greater aroma and sweeter taste to it. Frankly I like those qualities in a spiced rum. I prefer Kraken neat but I think Blackheart would accept a fruit juice mixer better. 93proof is great for a base for mixed drinks, and for those with high tolerances you are getting quite a bit more payload per bottle compared to many 70proof rums, for a handle it's like getting an extra 575ml of CM for free or 33% more alcohol, factored into the price it's a great value.

Blackheart is ok, easy on the taste buds considering its 93 proof but has a strong burn, not a pleasureable one. It's a cheap mixer that does its job.

I've been trying out plenty of different rums to get a feel, and this one knocked my socks off.  Perhaps Captain Morgan isn't the most "refined" of spiced rums, but Blackheart took it's place for my favorite, without question.  Heavy on the cherry flavor

I don't personally recommend mixing it with Cherry Coke, as its a bit over-kill.  Definite winner with reg Coke or Pepsi.  Also not bad with certain fruit juices, though choose wisely.  Blackheart is very sweet.

I bought a bottle of Blackheart many months ago, in part because it was so darn cheap for a spiced rum. The distributor was also offering a rather insane deal: A $10 rebate on a bottle purchase. Since this rum is so cheap where Im at already, I basically paid fifty cents for a 750 of spiced rum. So how does it stack up? Not bad. Its definitely a mixing rum, but also on the above average side when used as a sipping spirit. I have had other $10 rums that were simply awful; this one is nowhere near awful, but does need some refinement. They try to hide the lack of refinement behind the marketing BS on the bottle, but its not going to fool anyone. But how much refinement can you expect from a $10 bottle? In short, this is a pretty high value spirit for what it is. The nose pretty good...sweet and cherry, with a hint of alcohol smell, but its not obvious or off-putting. The flavor is 70% black cherry, and 20-30% typical spiced rum. It is sweet, but not as much as mass market spiced r
