This rum is so well blended that I you can't discern individual notes. Luckily I was able to pick the mind of the master blender, and with my chemistry background, really got into the talk of how it's made on a chemical level. The level of attention he put into it is incredible! Every last step was scrutinized with the eye of a research chemist. I can't wait for it to reach a wider distribution.

This rum is amazing for the price, a Jackson, it has replace my previous budget favorite, Flor De Cana 7 year. It's on the sweeter end of the rum spectrum, I probably wouldn't drink it with Pepsi, but with Coke it's fantastic. Extremely smooth, mellow vanilla tones, and great complimentary spices. It's even great on the rocks.

Delicious. Has hint of banana. Mixes well with Dr. Pepper.

Smooth and sweet. Different spices than what I've had in spiced rums before but very enjoyable. Good in cola or straight up.

Very smooth, spices are well blended, vanilla and pepper, and a hint of allspice, cinnamon and fruit.

This is a very good Spiced Rum.

It mixes really well with Coke. It's not too sweet, just well balanced.

Great for BBQ's, with your friendz



It's beyond incredible. It's so well blended and balanced. Straight it tastes amazing and in coke it tastes amazing. It's sweet but not over powering. I drink rum for the sweet, if I wanted dry-licking leather boots flavor I would drink scotches. The smell from the bottle is nothing interesting, it honestly smells exactly on the dot like Admiral Nelson's. In the glass it didn't do anything special either. It was much like any other rum, the oak-ethanol smell. Drinking it straight I was beyond surprised. Smooth isn't the word here. It comes in, says hello tongue and the tongue says hello back. They great each other shake hands and dance a little and down it goes. Where you get some spice from the pepper. Which is so ungodly fresh tasting it is mind boggling how that is possible. I am not talking kroger pepper here I mean the type you grow pick and eat yourself in the same day. That is how fresh tasting it is. In diet coke it is much the same, a very distinct flavor. Almost on the dot to sweet southern tea with some spice to it. The 20$ you pay for this is mind boggling. I have had my fair share of 15+ year old rums and they even at that age struggle getting their rum smooth. This is like something you could give to a mikes hard lemonade drinker and have them not even flinch from the alcohol. Yes it is that good. I don't think anyone will be beating/competing this rum's quality for at least a decade.

Bayou spiced rum is quite the hidden gem. With a generous flavor profile of vanilla, cinnamon, sweet praline, creme brule', and a light floral twist it is both delightful and surprising. It is what spiced rum should be, a blend of local spices and flavors with no single one gaining center stage over the others. This is a top fifty rum and with the ability to drink it over ice, may be the best spiced rum on the market. A must have for your liquor cabinet.

This rum has a very light aroma to it but a warm vanilla body with a sweet finish. This will be pleasing in any way you'd like drink it

It`s a great rum for the budget minded rum drinker and it´s a mixing rum and goes well with coke for example. It`s a good rum but not premium. But it´s one of those that can be a very versatile rum, i bet it´s great in cooking and desserts for example.

Like no other rum....and I've tasted and enjoyed many, different white, dark, and spiced rums. The spices are unique and distinctly flavorful. I believe that quality is in the tastebuds of the beholder and I'm sold on Bayou. It also helps that my wife is from New Orleans. Try it and let the good times roll!!!


One of my top 4 spiced rums. Very good, balanced, no alcohol harshness. Good mixer or on the rocks, not quite my favorite neat but still quite good. Much better than average (Capt, Jerry, Kraken, etc.)

Good for mixing. I'm not a fan of spiced rums, if a were I would probably give it a 7.


The sweetness within the rum combines very well with its spiciness as flavours of butterscotch mingle with the rum’s pungent spices. I taste that same combination of vanilla, nutmeg and allspice, with touches of cloves, cinnamon, cardamom and ginger which I had noticed in the breezes above the glass. There seems to be a few additional flavour elements present, some spicy orange peel ? Very smooth . Different in a good way . Highly recommend

Creole spices with a smooth and flavorful taste. One of the newest spiced rums on the market but also one of the best, putting The Captain packing and set sail on the high seas. This and Old New Orleans Spiced are exceptional rums to drink neat or mixed to spice up you cocktail. Experiment with various soda, like ginger ale, Dr. Pepper or Coke.

Great sipping spiced rum. It's really got a nice kick to it just like the cajun food from the bayou. Definitely recommend this rum, especially at a very affordable $24

This rum is bananas. Literally. Tastes of vanilla and light cherry--or in other words bananas, with some hints of cinnamon or some spice. Incredible budget rum. When you're going to that party and are considering picking up some janky admiral morgan or whatever, just spend the extra 10$ for this. It is amazing, and everyone will thank you for it.

Tried this rum at the 2017 Manchester Rum Festival. Was a nice sippable spiced rum. Not the typical sweet vanilla bomb most spiced rums tend to be. They admit to adding sugar to the rum (its even noted on the bottle), but they didnt over-do it. With spiced rum things are always added after destilation, so don't mind it too much.
According to the representative its solera aged up to 7 years, just like the Select.

Nothing overly special compared to other spiced rums. Quite sweet and can taste heavy vanilla. Good mixer although better spiced rums out there for the price.

Bayou spiced je výborný spiced rum, vyvážená chuť a vůně a kdyby to na láhvy nepsali, ani bych neřekl, že má 40%. Rozhodně to ale není na hodnocení 8.5. Za Mne max 7.5.

I run a rum bar in Miami Beach and I am proud to say that I use Bayou Spiced and Silver as my Well rums. My guests are consistently happy with the product and frankly so am I. For anyone who likes vanilla coke with a twist, use Bayou Spice you will not be disappointed!

I just opened my very first bottle of bayou spiced rum, and mixed it with a coke, as i see most people say this is good with a coke. And boy. They are right. First opening the bottle i got a hit of vanilla and a wooden smell followed. In the mouth its sweet, hard vanilla initial hit with a spicy follow. After taste is spicy. This is my first glass with it. So for now it holds a 7. Later in the week, and farther down the bottle i get, i will see where i stand on it neat and on the rocks. Thus will give a more up to date, and over all more reliable ranking. Moving on up to an 8 from my previous 7. Had it straight and loved it. After having two glasses i realized how well it went down. I xould have just kept drinking and drinking until i got into trouble. But knowing how a good tasting rum works i stopped after 3 glasses. Splendid mixes with coke. It may best sailor jerry as my favorite mix drink rum. Definitely tops it as a straight up rum.

Very floral and fruty for a spiced rum. I was expecting a more wooden, spiced taste but the vanila and fruty notes takes the foreground. Very pleasent surprise. Top spiced rum 9/10 , as a rum a solid 7.

Skip bacardi, Captain Morgan, and all the other mainstream rums. Grab a bottle of this and your set for any leisure occasion.
