This is a nice step up from the standard Cruzans. Rich molasses taste, but not as complex as the Single Barrel.

....and no where near as smooth. I like the American oak on the Single Barrel. It gives a much better and fuller nose. It also carries through on to the pallet. This one is inferior in all aspects. Maybe it is a quirk of a change in pricing (what with the recent Brexit decision), but I can't see why this is more expensive.

However, it is a nice enough rum, although given the choice of 5 year olds, Doorley's would be my choice. This is soft, smooth with a hint of a bite of alcohol. Medium bodied, dry but lacks power and sophistication.

Light Cruzan 5 year is like a more interesting Bacardi, nice and light. Dark 5 year is really good, compares favorably to Appleton.

This is a good rum for a daily drink, such as a Cuba Libre. Has a nice nose and palate with a bit of a bite on the finish. Nothing overpowering and nothing to fancy. Just a nice simple rum. This is what Bacardi used to be in decades past. I wouldn't call this a sipping rum, but too much of a bite for that. Not worthy of sitting on the bottom shelf.

Better than the other Cruzan runs but not quite the Single Barrel.

Use this for your tiki drinks that call out virgin island gold rum. Decent little sipper as well when your lazy and just feel like a quick pour. Great to have on hand.

Perhaps it is placebo, but I can taste the oak in the barrels. My palatte is not smart, but this is amazing rum. Reminds me of pyrat rum
