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.
Nez caramel beurre salé, bouge banane séchée et finale poivrée c’est superbe. Parfait pour accompagner un bon expresso par exemple !
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.
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 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.
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
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.
Smooth, but spices create a bit of a Christmas praline taste. Worth a try for a party drink.
If you drink this rum straight or in a rum-forward cocktail, it will really let you down. It tastes kind of sandy. I gave this rum a chance, but the only way to make it taste ok is by mixing it with coke. What I can say for it is, it doesn't taste bad in that artificial way that Captain Morgan does. It may be that the base rum isn't of great quality, but it also might just be an acquired or polarizing taste.
Ordered two bottles, this kind of rum is not my cup of tea :D But overal quality is very good.
Probably more like a 7.5 but i need to distinguish it from the other bayou which i prefer.
Ce rhum qui a un tres bon rapport qualité prix est difficille à trouver.22e aux usa.il part sur des notes vanillées et douces avec un petit gout de banane léger.se déguste sec.mais doit étre tres bon en ghum coca.si vous en trouvez achetez....
The first spiced rum I've had with a notably unique flavour profile. Vanilla and standard spiced flavours accented with prominent notes of cinnamon. Completely unique, complex, and of course, tasty.
Definite notes of carmel blended with a hint of banana and your typical spices. Fairy smooth and enjoyable
Maybe I am used to my own spiced rum (I made my own pimento dram) or a very good spiced rum like Chairman's Reserve, but this lacked "bite". It was good, just wanted it to be better.
Fantastic spiced rum. One of the best made in the US. Has a great nose of butterscotch and juicey fruit. One of the very best rum and cokes out there.
I wasn't big fan of spiced rum until this one. Love it with hot apple juice.
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.
