The Bayou White Rum is a pot still rum that is rested for up to 40 days to mellow out the flavors. After resting to combine flavors it is bottled with a 40% ABV. Let's dig in.
Rich and grassy on the nose, melon, vanilla bean, butter cream, a touch of lime zest.
Rich on the palate. For 40%, this is complex and packed with flavor - all of it pleasant. Sweet buttercream, a touch of lime zest, minerality, slate, confectioners sugar and tons of lovely citrus.
Long finish. Sweet and cream forward first, a twist of citrus on the back palate.
These Bayou folks, whew. They know how to make rum. Unbelievably good spirit.
