Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
A really solid spiced rum - much better than a Captain or Sailor. A good standby choice.
I like spiced rums as a sipper.
This one would suffice with a bit of mix but I just found it too harsh to truly enjoy on its own.
Original pink glass bottle. The aroma of vanilla, cloves, boiled molasses. Harsh as an extract. It is obligatory to accompany water, because Bayou Spiced is heavy and bitter as a medicine. Interrupts breath. There is no desire to continue for a long time due to sugar severity. 200-300 ml does not complicate work the next day.
Resembles Captain Morgan Spiced Gold. For those who don't like rum.
Easy to drink, spicy - in a sweet way - and kindly warm. I can remember chocolate notes if I'm not mistaken.
I don't drink much Coke but I did 'enjoy' one with this flavorful rum. It's more complex than the Captain, it's like a spiced rum for grown ups.
This is a good rum, will happily but this again and again.
I'm not a big spiced ron guy but this may just find its place in the rotation. The blend as noted isn't over bearing as with some of its class but still there to enjoy.
I'm not going to leave a complex review of finishes and flavours because to be honest I mixed this with coke and ginger beer. Nice Rum, almost too easy to drink. Nice vanilla, banana, cinnamon flavours mixing with the Coke. I would stay away from Coke zero because it's way too sweet. I found it best with ginger beer.
This rum has as much of a fruit background as a spice making a blend full of different flavors that us more than just a spiced rum. Not a sipper but one of the best mixers and blenders I have had with great balance. This is one of the great values I have seen recently and has a place in my bar, just wish I could get it locally.
This rum definitely has its place & that place is mixed with Coke. Not terribly enjoyable (to me, at least) on its own but the unique flavor profile lends itself well to mixing. If I’m in the mood for a Rum & Coke, it is my absolute go-to. Always keep some in the cabinet.
Κι επειδή Select μου άρεσε..... Κι επειδή είχε καλλίτερη βαθμολογία.... Κι επειδή είμαι περίεργος..... Είπα να το δοκιμάσω! Not impressed...... Θα έλεγα αρκετά μέτρια εμπειρία..... Δεν... Δεν.... Το ταλιρακι είναι μάλλον επιεικής βαθμός.... 5 μείον
Compré una botella en Miami hace unos años. Un spiced en todo sentido, pero ni siquiera tan malo. Por lo menos mejor que Kraken o el Private Stock de Morgan. El problema es que parece ser que siempre se exceden con algún añadido.
Velmi silná infuze vanilky vám po celou dobu degustace natolik tlačí na čichové pohárky, až nakonec bohužel začne v hlavě nepříjemně těžknout. Monotematické však aroma rozhodně není, jelikož vanilku doprovází i mix koření, jehož finální projev bych přirovnal k vůni oblíbené dětské cukrovinky s názvem marshmallow (u nás „žužu“). V jemné a sladěné chuti se více soustředíte na ovocné tóny než 40% deklarovaného alkoholu, jež by dle mého tipoval málokdo. Podobně tedy jako u Bumbu či Plantation Pineapple shledávám Bayou spiced zajímavý a originální, celovečerní zábavu si však s tímto krokodýlem z Louisiany představit nedokážu. Barmani naopak zcela jistě zajásají nad cenově přijatelnou posilou do mix drinků a fandové infuzí posunou mé bodové hodnocení možná o stupínek či dva výše.
Is a spicied drink like liquer style not extreamly sweet but strange, you dont feel any sirius alcohol taste but also i dont feel it flavorful & it is like 1 years old rum maybe or half... to a woman maybe like this but not sure, just a bad style sweetness (maybe this is better for cocktails).
Bayou works very well with ginger beer and isn't bad on his own. It's reasonably priced rum hidden in classy bottle without disturbing unnatural flavours. Flavour of vanilla is prevailing with touches of cinnamon and spices. I can only recommed for a try.
Un nez très parfumé mais à mon goût en bouche un peu rêche
Moins de moelleux que prévu dommage
Un rhum très doux, avec des notes de vanille et de caramel. Rappelant beaucoup le "pink pingeon"
Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Bayou Spiced Rum bottle and label design looks nice and unique. Light golden color from artificial flavoring. 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.
After trying Bayou Select (an 8 plus) I was disappointed by this ok rum overpowered by the taste of sweet cherry. I prefer spiced rums like Foursquare or Cruzan 8. As a person who drinks rum on-the-rocks, I will avoid this going forward although I will repurchase its older brother.
Sampled this rum with a variety of cocktail syrups at Cardiff Rum Festival on the weekend. It's ok as a spiced rum and is better than most others on the market. It's acceptable to drink neat or with cola. But I probably wouldn't buy a bottle
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.
