Tasty, but not quite great
This new flavored rum from Bayou was a pleasant surprise this morning. The nose smells like Kahlua Coffee Liqueur. It is sweet but not disgustingly so. At 26% ABV and only $17 US, I would have to say that this one is comprised of their Silver Rum with black coffee added with a bit of sweetening. Since this is the only coffee flavored rum that I have reviewed, I have no others to compare it to. It is good enough to drink neat, on the rocks, or in creative mixed drinks. I am not a baker, but I would venture to say that it would make great cakes and cookies.
Since these bottles are very hard to find and their website does not even show this one, I will give my estimate for those who are willing to make their own blend. Bayou Silver Rum should be 65% of the final batch. Dark roasted Central American Arabica coffee should be brewed strong and slightly sweetened, and this will make up the other 35%. All I did to figure this out was to divide 26% ABV by 40% ABV to find 65% rum in this mix.
Update November 12, 2019:
After rating 271 rums over the past 22 months, I have come to the conclusion that I should only concentrate on the top 45 best purchases made over this time for repeat purchases. They range in price from $17 US to $65 US. So it will be quite a while before any rum that is new to me inspires me to plunk down the bucks and try it just to add another review.
