I wasnt expecting much from this inexpensive Louisiana rum, however it punches above its weight. Sweet and very smooth, almost goes down too quick. Not overly sweet but mellow. I rarely buy a second bottle the next week of the same rum but made an exception this time. Definitely one on my list of recommendations, especially for those new to rum and looking to try something inexpensive.

US made rum?! I have to admit I had some prejudices, but they all vanished once I opened the bottle. A smooth one, good as a sipper, but could be used as a mixer. A bit sweet for my taste, but it has complexity.
One of the top tier rums in its price range, that's why I give ot 8/10 instead of 7.

Note: I'm a sipper. My opinion is based on sipping characteristics.

I can't even begin to describe just how unprepared this got me! Exceptional stuff! Exceptional! Didn't expect that for sure. So complex, it's amazing. I don't know how it's even possible for a rum aged "up to 3 years" to look and feel as a 15- year old and frankly I don't care. Absolutely astounding. And at that price range, there is nothing, I repeat nothing that comes even close. It totally decimated my other surprise and ever since go-to all-rounder Flor de Caña Gran Reserva 7-Year.

Rich gold. Standard signature of this brands aroma but WOW this flavor is fantastic. The oakiness wood flavors and caramel toasted taste- outstanding. Leathery finish. Yum.

Golden rum
Sweet aroma, with vanilla notes
This is a super delectable rum. A sipper, this has a lot of flavor. The finish remains sweet to the end.

Second Bayou I try... Just to sharp when it comes to it's taste. When it comes to USA they should stick to bourbons ;)

Unlike others, I had higher hopes after reading the comments. Not dry and rather not sweet too. I like the smell.

Spicy, bit of a kick, solid burn. Smells fantastic, probably slightly better than the taste. Overall a good rum and great value for money.

Начальные линейки рома данной марки хороши. Осталось попробовать их вершину - марди гра!

Rank 7 is labelled as "recommendable to most". I could not agree more (yet I gave 8 :) ). This is quite cheap one - here you can get Kraken Black or Havana 7yo for similar price. And this one is (for me, obviously) much "jack of all trades". Easily sippable, good with Coke too. Comparing to its more expensive brother (Bayou Single Barrell) it is less dry, less complex, but out of 5 people drinking together literally everybody agreed, that it is a good, decent, safe choice. So, if you want to upgrade from the usual cheap market rum, still with a decent price range, and you are not into spiced drinks - this one is for you!
