Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Cruzan Banana has nothing to do with aged rums. It is just a sugar overload liquor masked as a Caribbean rum to tourists. The banana flavor is artificial as a neat sipper, but it could easily be used as a good extra ingredient for your tropical mixed drink.
I actually really like the Cruzan flavored rums. The only gripe I have with them is they are 42 proof, ideally I would like that 80 proof but o well. They are good rums, no bite no burn just the rum and banana flavor with sugar. Simple but if you want to mix I cannot recommend anything better especially for like 12$ a bottle! What bugs me about them however is how much sugar they contain. If you open the bottle and poor some and then open it again at a later day there will be sugar crystals where you poured from. I mean who drinks for health anyway, but the main thing im going on about is I don't like "filler" im my rum. Give me rum till I float. Not sugar.
I like Cruzan rums. This one is only average though. It is hard to find a good tasting banana flavored anything. It is respectable for banana.
Tastes like someone dissolved some banana skittles pieces in some cheap rum. I can't really recommend a better one because I have yet to taste one that was decent.
This is always in the cabinet, very seldom in a glass. I use it as a topping for ice cream and fruit salads. If you are into sweet liqueurs this may be interesting but not satisfying.
I actually had to buy this bottle in the Duty Free in Aruba. I have yet to find it in the PA stores, although they carry many other Cruzan flavoreds. I use them whenever a rum recipe calls for a banana liqeuer. If some rum is good, then more is better.
