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.
Delicious. Has hint of banana. Mixes well with Dr. Pepper.
Very smooth, spices are well blended, vanilla and pepper, and a hint of allspice, cinnamon and fruit.
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.
Nez caramel beurre salé, bouge banane séchée et finale poivrée c’est superbe. Parfait pour accompagner un bon expresso par exemple !
Smooth and sweet. Different spices than what I've had in spiced rums before but very enjoyable. Good in cola or straight up.
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.
I had tried this one on the rocks at a football game years ago and swore to never touch this stuff again. Well, one should NEVER try any spiced rum the first time on the rocks since they were all blended to be mixers.
So, at yesterday's NFL playoff game, I saw this one at the bar and gave it one more try to be added with coke. Hey, this ain't so bad after all. I actually liked this very unique drink and I wound up ordering three double shots with coke over the course of the first three quarters. It also lubricated my throat so that I could contribute to the 107 decibels of noise that helped our team win. However, the next day it did a slight number on my system as well as showing a few pounds gained, so I won't buy a bottle for my cabinet at home.
Orangish in color, baking spices, vanilla, and orange peel flavors. It reminded me of an improved version of Captain Morgan spiced. Not quite the rum to drink neat, a bit too sweet, and mixes strangely with Coke. Although I felt it was higher quality than CM, I couldn't really find a way to enjoy drinking it.
This is my 2nd favorite that I have found. It's a bit different than most spiced rums. Mixes well and not bad straight.
Syrup on the palate and cinnamon on the finnish. Nothing off putting. One of the better quality spiced rums i have had. Up there with chairman's reserve.
My current go to for spiced rum. You can tell they put love into this one! Warm vanilla and baking spices abound.
A truly great spiced rum. Very well balanced and full of flavor. Great for sipping.
A friend of mine who works in the coast guard recommended this rum to me. I have never seen him drink rum before so I was a little skeptical, but this rum is fantastic. Great to sip on and mixes greatly with coke.
Bought this based on the ratings here. I am not a fan at all. I have found better for less money. You know it’s bad when I feel like Captain Morgan is an upgrade.
I gave it another chance. Liked it even less the second time. Gave the bottle away, which is something I don’t generally do.
Bayou Spiced is a pretty good American Rum, possibly the best of the bunch made in the USA. It has an obvious vanilla smell, first sip seems to taste a bit like bourbon barrel slightly oaky then the vanilla comes back for a fairly smooth finish. It is a bit dry with a slight burn but nice sweetness. Mixed with Coke or straight with a Coke chaser is quite pleasant. I will be enjoying Louisiana Libres for the next few months.
I was happily impressed with this rum out of Louisiana. For a younger rum, it has a solid flavor. I had a hint of vanilla on the nose and palate with a light spice finish. It can be drank neat or over the rocks without an issue.
For an affordable every day drink, Bayou is a good choice.
Nice with ginger..
Fine on its own, really comes alive as a mixer with coke, great mix of flavours
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!!!
