It is interesting how subtle the fragrance is upon opening the bottle. Almost as if it were a mixed drink. I was expecting something stronger in terms of odor but the Bayou Silver rum's odor is mild yet has the cane element one expects in rum. Its flavor is not harsh but just slightly sweet. Not really complex but quite tasty. This would be equally good straight, on the rocks, in cola, and in mixed drinks. A very versatile rum. Definitely recommended among white/silver rums.

Strong enough but sweet enough at the same time.

Not a bad mixer, does not add any flavor just a little sweet nothing. I can't see what all the high rating are about. I really like dark aged rums so I must just not know how this one should taste.

This is an agricole (sugarcane) tasting rum, but it's a little sweeter than most agricoles. Tastes a little like sugar syrup (which I like in this). Smooth and easy drinking, this is a nice light rum. I'm not a big fan of light rums, but this is above average to me.

It adds a little extra to any cocktail and is priced in line with comparable rums.

I have been very reluctant to try any more rums from Bayou after being disappointed with their Satsuma and Spiced. So when I picked up their Select today, I added this one to the basket as well. I really had my doubts before opening it, so I read the back of the label. Unlike the Select that is 100% agricole from cane juice, this one is a mixture of cane juice and molasses. It is fermented with cane yeast and distilled in copper pots.

My first sip really surprised me to the point whereby I told myself, "Damn, that tastes awfully familiar". After a few more sips, the vanilla and chocolate notes remind me very much of Vizcaya Cristal from the Dominican Republic, one of my top rated white rums. This was indeed a pleasant surprise!

Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Bayou Silver Rum bottle and label design looks nice and unique. Strong alcohol and a plethora of artificial flavors to the nose and palate. Strong burn at the end. Barely mixable. I would skip this one for sure.

Sweet nose with liquor hit to nose. Tried to sip and actually not bad from a strong alcohol aspect but sure it’s made for mixed drinks. Had with coke not much flavor. Definitely gets lost with mixer. If your looking for buzz with no bite this works but looking for flavor try something else

If you're looking for another Bacardi style silver, this isn't it. It's more like an agricole, made from sugar cane instead of molasses. Very clean on the nose, and a good flavor to follow up.

Not a bad clear mixer rum, would buy again for a daily mixer.

I've only had a sip so far, but it tasted smooth and I like the aroma.
