Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
A new taste, the cane sugar is nice, a new favorite for me.
I read many good reviews concerning this rum online and came across it at the local Winn Dixie liquor store so I decided to try it. I was not disappointed. Per my norm, I tried some in my Coke Zero and found it blended extremely well. No conflicting flavors from the spices and no lingering aftertaste. My wife, who normally doesn't care for spiced rums, liked it straight. Definitely worthy of addition to any liquor cabinet.
This is one of my favorite spiced rums. I've rated this an 8 as a rum but as spiced rums go, this is a 10. Unique and wonderful natural flavors in this and much better than the typical mass produced spiced rums. I've enjoyed experimenting with this in mixed drinks and even in desserts with pumpkin bread and vanilla ice cream. I shared this with friends at a rum tasting and this was a hit.
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.
I was expecting this to be a better tasting rum than its Silver sister. Not that it's bad tasting, I just expected better.
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.
