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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Smooth and sweet. Different spices than what I've had in spiced rums before but very enjoyable. Good in cola or straight up.
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.
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
