Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Nez caramel beurre salé, bouge banane séchée et finale poivrée c’est superbe. Parfait pour accompagner un bon expresso par exemple !
Delicious. Has hint of banana. Mixes well with Dr. Pepper.
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.
Smooth and sweet. Different spices than what I've had in spiced rums before but very enjoyable. Good in cola or straight up.
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 great rum for the budget minded rum drinker and 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 very versatile rum, i bet it´s great in cooking and desserts for example.
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 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.
