Cruzan Single Barrel Rum begins as an assortment of aged rums, distilled in column stills and ranging in vintage up to 12 years. After blending, the rum rests in a new oak barrel for an additional year before bottling. Each bottle of Cruzan Single Barrel rum is poured from only one barrel, which may increase color variance from batch to batch.
Cruzan Single Barrel rum is produced by the Nelthropp Family in St. Croix. The name ""Cruzan"" is derived from island's native population - the “Crucians."
Recommendable to most
Première dégustation, pour moi pas vraiment un rhum de dégustation. Je vais l'essayer en le comparant à d'autre rhum et voir comment mieux l'apprécier ou avec une glace ou du coke..
This rum is a bit lighter golden color than I typically prefer, but I like to try a bottle every 2-3 months and often have a bottle on my shelf. I think of single barrel a bit more like scotch or bourbon. Not a sweet as most rums not as dry as most scotches. It has lingering depth but sometimes I feel it’s got a bit of a bite. I think it deserves a solid 7.
I picked this up at the distillery on St Croix. Pretty good, though like some other rums better. Most of their other rums are inexpensive. Better than the mass produce Captain Morgan.
Great sipper. I usually prefer a heavier pot still rum but this is a fine example of just how enjoyable the lighter flavours of column still rum can be.
Affordable too here in BC, Canada
The rum is sweet with a woody, nutty, and caramelly aroma. I’m not sure how to label the nuttiness? Hazelnut?
Without ice, the rum is woody, caramelly, and slightly sweet, but the sweetness isn’t overbearing. It’s slightly harsh with a bit of a burn to it, but it’s not overtly so or offputting, imo
A single small cube of ice from my freezer toned down the harshness as it melted. The sweetness seems to move to the forefront, and a caramel-like flavor becomes more prominent.
I think it’s a really good rum, and it’s one I’d like to keep around
