Very good understated rum. Nice color with hints of vanilla and caramel. Sweet but not overpowering.

9 years is a sweet spot for any decent rum and this is no exception. Another spice that tastes like an Amber it is aged rum at a blended price. A good stepping stone for a would be connoisseur.

This rum has an amazing pleasing aroma to it. Mainly you will smell nutmeg and vanilla. It doesn't have that bad bite like other rums in this same price range. Here it is around $12 a bottle.
All of the Cruzan rums are pretty tasty. I think mixing this might be a bit on the sweet side if cola is used.
Well worth it if you like a nice spiced rum, sweet, and not a lot of bite. Honestly, you can't even smell the alcohol.

Going to keep this one brief and simple.

I enjoy the rum. Slight creamy feel on the palate, but very approachable.
Nice hints of vanilla, and allspice up front. Leads to cinnamon on the back palate. What I love about this rum is the slight gin like feel I get. There is a hint of juniper I get while I sip it neat or with rocks.

I recommend it for any spiced rum lover just getting into rum.

Very heavy on the vanilla. With Coke it's practically Vanilla Coke. Straight it's vanilla with a hint of cinnamon as the main flavors.

This is a small step up from your typical large-batch production spiced rums. A bit more vanilla, but pretty smooth for a full 80 proof (40% ABV). Poured neat, you can smell the vanilla and baking spices with a hint of cream and citrus. The first sip is surprisingly smooth, and sweet, but not too sweet. A short finish leaves behind a hint of clove and licorice. This mixes well with a rum & coke, and would also go well in a pina colada, but would get lost in a stronger cocktail.

This one has a unique nose and a delightful spice to it. sweet smooth and soft on its own due to 35% ABV it really lets the spice combo shine if you drink it neat. where this rum shines is with coke. good value for the money. my go too rum when i want a rum and coke. sweet and slight vanilla with some pepper and spice. might go well with dr pepper.

I have champagne taste but a beer budget. Only drink rum on the rocks with the exception of top-shelf rums. Cruzan 9 has a good (not great) rum taste with hint of spice. Agree with other reviewers that vanilla is prominent flavor but not over-powering.

This has become one of my favorites so far. Excellent for mixing or sipping. The only downfall is that it is not available in Canada.

I enjoy this one to break up the regular spiced rums. Its a little lighter than most.
