Bayou Spiced rum, a version of their base Bayou Rum that’s rested up to 30 days with a blend of creole baking spices and bottled at 80 proof. According to the distillery, its amber color comes from the spice blend.via American Rum Report
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.
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.
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.
Very smooth, spices are well blended, vanilla and pepper, and a hint of allspice, cinnamon and fruit.
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.
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.
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 smells just like butterscotch candy. Hence I think it's more of a flavored rum than a spiced rum. However, the taste includes a good amount of spice. So I guess it can be considered a spiced rum as well.
While I'm generally not a huge fan of either flavored rums or spiced rums, this is perhaps the best of both I've ever tried. The butterscotch flavor goes very well with rum, and the spice is interesting too; it's not a fiery hot spice like the Old New Orleans Cajun Spiced Rum; it's more of a peppery spice.
This is a very impressive flavored/spiced rum. The best I've had of either!
This is a very good Spiced Rum.
It mixes really well with Coke. It's not too sweet, just well balanced.
Great for BBQ's, with your friendz
This rum has a very light aroma to it but a warm vanilla body with a sweet finish. This will be pleasing in any way you'd like drink it
It`s a mixing rum and goes well with coke for example. It`s a good rum but not premium. But it´s one of those that can be a versatile rum, i bet it´s great in cooking and desserts for example.
Smooth vanilla taste, slight burn, if you want a cheap bottle to share with a mate for a night then not bad, but not one I'd store in a collection.
I'm not usually a spiced rum fan, but every so often I try one since my wife likes them. This is better than most and deserves to be recommended to most. I have not tried other Bayou offerings, but I just might have to after his. Nice job!
Long kick, aroma of cinnamon vanilla and species taste of vanilla and plum. Excellent choice for cocktails and with Coles otherwise is like a syrup. Value of money though
Within this price range (£20ish) might be the best entry level rum I have ever had. It should be a must for starters as it is so well blended. It is quite sweet and vanilla-heavy, so for those looking for more complex flavors it might be a bit of a "simple" tasting experience. Overall though, amazing value for money.
Great complex rum flavor and minimal spice. Balanced flavor (not hugely vanilla flavored). It has quite a bit of "oak" flavor, maybe too much. A little hard to find. Definitely worth checking out, though.
As far as Spiced Rum goes, I would highly recommend Bayou Spiced as the perfect choice to ease yourself into a higher quality of product. Personally, it could use more spice, but that does not effect it’s overall quality. If you’ve never given it a try, I would definitely grab a bottle and give it a try
