Cruzan has a super strong molasses flavor to it. Drunk straight, the molasses flavours can be overwhelming. I was not a fan. Really needs to be used in mixed drinks.

My fav for a Dark n Stormy
Heavy molasses flavor ( which I love ) with a raisin undertone

Appearance: molasses
Flavor: this is just a fine, fine rum. Sip it slowly, and do I ever wish I had a nice gingerbread cookie to go with this.

Deep black color. Burnt nose. Tastes unbalanced. Not a fan, even as a mixer.

Molasses...it's called black strap rum. It smells like molasses, tastes molasses and it is the most molasses heavy rum that I've ever had. I like the taste of molasses, so I approve of this rum but if you don't, you'll want to avoid this one. That simple.

This is a good Rum. The aroma is nice with notes of raisin and fresh bread and the taste is also good. Molasses and brown sugar come front and center in the taste but there is a slightly artificial quality to it which I am not a fan of. Overall not a bad black rum.

Sampled at Laka Lono. For a cheap rum, this is a delightful surprise. Yummy sulfur notes with all the requisite blackstrap molasses flavors. A staple ingredient to a Jungle Bird, this makes for a great float when one is called for. Why don't more companies mass produce blackstrap rum?

As far as sweet rums go this one is mighty fine. Carmel, toffee, baking spices, burnt sugar. It excels in a dark n’ stormy as well.

This is absolutely my favorite rum for a Jungle Bird or a Cuba Libre. It's a bit abrasive and the molassas notes are incredibly strong, but for casual sipping I enjoy it quite a bit from time to time.

My initial impression hasn't blown me away, but perhaps I'm just not used to overpowering molasses flavoring this rum provides. I'll give it another chance, maybe in a mixed cocktail which calls for this type of rum. In the meantime, I think I'll stick with my usual dark rum faves...

For me it is my third choice in black rums, behind Captain Black and Kracken. The first Bottle i Drank had no bite at the end but the next one had a lot more
