Old New Orleans Cajun spiced rum New Orleans, Louisiana
Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday are in full swing and I am sure plenty of this rum is being consumed, as liquid courage helping the shy girls to earn some beads.
Before I get off track dreaming of girls earning beads, let’s try this unique rum, made from black strap molasses and aged in oak bourbon barrels.
The nose is warm and spicy.
The taste is also warm with spice, lots and lots of spice.
Cinnamon and pepper (cayenne?) are up front and very noticeable, followed by
nutmeg and ginger. The taste is similar to a stick of Big Red Gum. Only better because it is RUM not gum.
The smooth finish is warm and spicy with a hint of pepper.
This is everything a spice rum should be, Keep it on your top shelf for sipping and on your bar shelf to make some great mixed drinks.
CASEY’S TAKE: Cajun Spice is my favorite Spiced Rum of them all, By far! Sip it, mix it. It does everything. Especially in the winter! it warms ya up just right. Make sure ya get 2 bottles, cause the first one won’t last long!
