Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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!!!
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.
I bought this as a gift for a friend at Burning Man 2016. Carried it from Florida to Nevada, and ended up keeping it and carrying all the way home before trying it. Glad I kept it. What a treat. I bought it based on reviews here and elsewhere, and those were not wrong. It is sweet, but in a clean tasting, not syrupy, way. I would say vanilla is the prominent taste I can discern. Spiced rum isn't generally my thing, but at this price I'll definitely buy this again. It is smooth enough to sip (I preferred it on the rocks with one cube, over neat), but it's sweetness makes it more suitable as a mixer. Goes great with coke, but really excels in ginger ale.
Fantastic taste, perfectly smooth, sweet (which is my preference).
Almost perfect but a little bit of burn after a few more sips.
Tastes fantastic on the rocks.
