Tasty, but not quite great
Very tasty cherry rum. It mixes well with cherry flavored Coke Zero. I mix it 4oz black cherry rum 1oz Cruzan vanilla rum with 12oz coke zero over ice.
Wow I found this very delightful. Easy to drink straight, chilled or warm. Very strong cherry aroma, and taste. It's also a sweet rum. I really do enjoy the cruzan flavored rums. There is no over powering rum burn as in some flavored rums. Oh my goodness, had to edit my review. This rum is so good in coke. Totally masks the alcohol, even if you mix 1 to 1 with coke. Can sneak up on you fast.
Cruzan Black Cherry has nothing to do with aged rums. It is just a sugar overload liquor masked as a Caribbean rum to tourists. The cherry flavor is very artificial and overpowering sugar just smashes you straight in the face. My suggestion is to skip the entire Cruzan lineup altogether.
I originally bought this to experiment with some cherry-lime flavored cocktails. Its crystal clear with a sweet cherry nose. Its a tad sweet for me and the low proof is kind of disappointing however, it makes a nice cherry daiquiri, is dynamite in cola, isn't real candy-like and is relatively inexpensive. I had to experiment with the sweetness of other cocktails to get it right but its a nice weapon to add a surprise fruity twist on drinks. May even try it in so me cooking and baking! Cheers.
If you like island drinks and you like flavoured rum this one is great .
Cruzan has a great selection of flavoured rums and this one is easier sipping or easy mixing a must to have on the shelf
