Rum tasting in Baton Rouge continued with Railean Small Cask. Unique bottle and label design. Golden color. Pure alcohol mixed with plenty of oak to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong and dry burn at the end. Whisky fan boys can add 2 points to my score.

I get a lot of tobacco and a hint of nutmeg. No bite or heat to it at 80 proof. Cood color, some floral and oak on the nose. It is not sweet like I was expecting, that is not a bad thing. Maybe it is just me, but there is a hint of salt air on the nose as well.

The finish is lacking a bit in my opinion, wish there was some spice on the tail end. I think it would really set this one off.

Overall a good pour. Next time i will try it over an ice ball and see how it changes the profile.

Railean Small Cask is a really smooth, nice single barrel rum. I have only tried a few single barrel rums cause they are hard to find and usually a little pricey. Railean Small Cask holds up to the others I have had. I bought the rum at the distillery which is definitely worth going to. Its a cool place to go and sample some rum and have a few drinks. I highly recommend going there if you are in the Houston area. I will be trying the Railean spiced rum tonight.

I feel like I have to review at least one rum on National Rum Day. I've tried this Railean for several days, but I just can't get past comparisons to others. I like it's dark, deep flavors like the El Dorado dark. Even so, it is lacking something else to make it better. I have not tried the other Railean offerings, and might not at this point. I'll keep it around, but I will not replace it once it is gone.

There are way too many better ones for half the cost . . .

Smooth, clean, saved for sunsets on the beach and special occasions.
