Parade – Spiced Rum


Ok… now that I got that out of my system, let’s talk about how damn good this rum is.

Parade Spiced Rum is the infusion of Alma Plantation’s terroir with a subtle medley of botanicals, creating Louisiana’s Original Single Estate Spiced Rum. You may notice hints of Seville orange, vanilla, and raw sugar when drinking it neat, in a cocktail, or our favorite, “Spiced on ice.”

Hailing from Baton Rouge’s own distillery, Cane Land Distilling, comes Parade Spiced Rum, a beautiful, cloudy, caramel colored spirit. Spiced rums can be hit-or-miss, created either using additives to cover up a sub-par rum, or, in this case, using spices to create a wonderfully layered and enjoyable sipping rum.

  • Nation: Louisiana, USA
  • Color: Cloudy caramel
  • Aroma: Off the top, some toasted marshmallow, subtle cinnamon (not that aggressive “Big Red” style cinnamon), vanilla, and baking spices. Weirdly, I’m also picking up bubblegum.
  • Flavor: It’s damn smooth. Sweet but not too sweet, and just a little tangy.
  • Finish: A cleansing, satisfying orange peel finish.
  • Notes: This is subtle, layered, and flavorful. Sweet. Fruity. Citrus. You’ll constantly discover something new when you’re drinking this. Very very enjoyable. 
  • Rating: B+

I do tastings with a wide mouth rocks glass with a slight taper because I like the way it feels in my hands. I start with 2oz, neat, then add an ice cube to bring out subtler flavors and aromas.
