Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
In my humble and very inexperienced opinion, this is THE best rum. BUT, I haven't tasted many others. Of the popular rums in the USA, Bayou Spiced Rum is my favorite.
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.
Delicious. Has hint of banana. Mixes well with Dr. Pepper.
Ok this is some really good rum. I really like this.Its got a really good vanilla flavor.Mix with cola.This is one rum on my bar.
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!!!
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.
Very smooth, spices are well blended, vanilla and pepper, and a hint of allspice, cinnamon and fruit.
A new taste, the cane sugar is nice, a new favorite for me.
I wasn't big fan of spiced rum until this one. Love it with hot apple juice.
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.
Fine on its own, really comes alive as a mixer with coke, great mix of flavours
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.
Bayou spiced rum, though without the aging of Capt Morgan, give it a solid run for the money at a significant cost saving. Wonderful over ice.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A truly great spiced rum. Very well balanced and full of flavor. Great for sipping.
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....
This is a good rum, will happily but this again and again.
My current go to for spiced rum. You can tell they put love into this one! Warm vanilla and baking spices abound.
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.
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
