Rum of the Month

May’s Rum of the Month

Roulaison Traditional Pot Distilled Rum

Roulaison (roo-la-ZON) is the French-Creole term for the sugar cane harvest. This rum is distilled locally in New Orleans and uses Louisiana sugar cane. If that isn’t enough to bring you in for your complimentary pour, it also won “Best of Class” among all rum entries at the American Distilling Institute’s 2017 Judging of Craft Spirits.

Their flagship white rum is robust with notes of pineapple and bruised banana as well as a backbone of cinnamon and mint. It creates a luscious mouth-feel, slightly cooling and subtly sweet with notes of crisp lemongrass and lime. The finish lends subtle hints of spice, smoke, forest and pine.

Stop by the Black Duck Bar for your complimentary pour!
