Tasty, but not quite great
Rum is my drink of choice and I love nothing better than Black Strap with my homemade ginger beer. The richness and darkness of the molasses creates a tasty and fragrant drink that’s unforgettable. Sip it or mix it, it will help you forget the mean woman you married. Incidentally I keep ingredients chilled and never add ice. I hate watery drinks.
The best way to evaluate dark rum is straight up. Unless you are paying a lot of money, most of them are tough to enjoy. Cruzan Black Strap is delicious with some ice, period. If you find it too strong, add a bit of water. It's the best.
I tried this rum and it was love at first taste. I was very surprised that it was not like the other dark rums, but had less "rum" (alcohol) flavors and more flavors from molasses that taste great on the rocks or mixed into Pepsi and certain other mixers. It's not for mixing in where a lighter rum flavor is needed (think pina coladas) because it is a bit on the heavy side, but if you like bold and flavorful, give it a shot. Or two.
This stuff is massively underrated. I love keeping this stuff around in the winter time.. It has an amazing molasses flavor and it just makes you feel warm and cozy.
I enjoy this rum with strong hints of vanilla, toasted marshmallow, molasses and nutmeg. I have not tried this rum mixed with soda or juice, as I enjoy sipping this neat. A slight burn going down to let you know your drinking rum, however combined with the right spice nuances, this rum should be a house rum to anyone who enjoys a fine rum.
Just a guy who likes good rum or whiskey over good crushed ice. Black Strap is a bit of an acquired taste but this is pretty smooth and I am not rich. Cheers!
I like violence, lifting, and naked ladies. I also like this rum. A lot. I know it is lower on the price point, but damnit it is good! Amazing mixing rum but also good for sipping on the rocks. Dark molasses mixed with the quiet whisper of evil
At first the nose is introduced to the aroma of molasses. The mouth is complimented with a Rich not too sweet flavor of slightly burned sugar. The finish is bark with no bite. I love this Rum any season. It is truly unique. This is what rum must have looked and tasted like in the 17th and 18th centuries. I prefer this Rum very cold as it does something wonderful to the overall experience. Leave it in freezer and drink it neat .
