January’s Rum of the Month

Bayou Rum Single Barrel Batch 001

The latest rum to come out of this award-winning Louisiana distillery is made with barrels hand-picked by second generation master blender Reiniel Vicente. Single Barrel Batch 001 was aged in previously filled rye barrels for two years and four months before being declared complete. This one-of-kind spirit delivers the signature balanced notes synonymous with Bayou, paired with the complex addition of spice, marshmallow and crème brûlée.

Tasting Notes:

Nose: smoked oak, pepper, tropical fruits

Palate: spice, oak, honey, pineapple and banana

Finish: marshmallow and crème brûlée
