I don't have experience with rum, but I did 2oz of bourbon soaked oak chips (just enough bourbon to cover the chips) for a 5g. batch of imperial porter. I added the bourbon at bottling time (leaving the chips behind) without thinking about it much, and the oak flavor was OUTRAGEOUS. The stuff wasn't drinkable until about a year later. I would taste that rum before you do anything hasty. ;-)
