Had some Rougaroux Dark Rum over the weekend




Pretty good stuff, it's made in Thibodeaux. It's the 2nd local rum I've tried and it's definitely better than Bayou Rum. I had it straight, with coke, and made a dark and stormy. Was delicious in all three forms. It's about $18-20 a bottle and 80 proof, very good stuff. Oh, and the bottle is pretty cool. I highly recommend you guys pick up a bottle.

My SO's parents got some as part of a "Louisiana" basket they won at an auction (also included a ton of Louisiana Fish Fry Products, some local rice vodka, some Swamp Pop soda, a wine from Covington, and a couple random microbrews). I'm looking forward to trying it. I think we're going to do an end of the school year party with some rum based drinks with it.

I bet a Swamp Pop and the rum would make for a good drink.

I really want to use their Pecan praline cream soda with that rum on the rocks while sitting beach side. Talk about a damn good day.

I've walked through the distillery. Nice place. Couple of md's.

I think they either have a vodka as well, or are gonna have it out soon.

Vodka was their first product; it called Oryza and is made using Louisiana rice.

IIRC, they have a dark rum and a clear rum, both are made using sugar cane from one of the owners' family owned cane farm/plantation.

Haven't tried anything from them yet, but I've heard they are doing well with everything.

Hmmm. I may have to try that. I'm a fan of the Bayou Rum.

You say its better than Bayou Rum, but they don't even have a dark to compare it to. If youre comparing it to Bayou Rum Silver it probably has more flavor because its a dark rum. I dont think its better than bayou Spiced Rum however. The Oryza vodka from rice is interesting, its worth trying but has a little twang that some vodka drinkers may not like

I'm comparing it to the spiced, not saying Bayou is bad or anything.


It was $19 at Rouses the other day.

I think in a Dark and Stormy the Rougaroux would be much better, i actually drink the Bayou Spiced on the rocks.

I like Bayou, my only beef with it is the price point. For just a few dollars more I can buy a handle of Sailor Jerry's which to me is a lot better. I think Bayou is a good bit better than the Captain, though.

I've been meaning to try the Kraken, it's about the only big name brand that I have yet to try. Those bottles are awesome.

I work with one of the owners. Most of their stuff is good. Praline rum is good straight. Gin is very good. They also make whiskey which I have yet to try.

re: Had some Rougaroux Dark Rum over the weekend
I bartended a 30 year reunion a while back and a lady there gave me 2 cases of Rougaroux liquor to use. It was filled with their gin, whiskey, vodka, and dark and clear rums. I tried all of them, but thought the gin and vodka were the best, simply comparing them to the more common names that were there (Bombay, Hendricks, Beefeater, Tanqueray). I enjoy gin, and can honestly say that I'll be looking for theirs in the future.
