Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Purchased a bottle of Cruzan Gold Rum not expecting much from this 2 year old rum. I must say that it is much better than other similar low priced rum (Bacardi & Captain Morgan) but I would not consider this a sipping rum. Still, not bad for the price.
Update: Tried this rum again the next day and the taste is growing on me. This rum is dry and quite enjoyable on its own. Not a premium rum but tasty enough to keep a supply in my liquor cabinet.
For an entry level, opening price point this is a quality rum. Just sweet enough, mellow easy. It's a lot of rum at a reasonable price.
And you would think so as I came of age on St. Croix back in the early 70's... It, is my Mainstay Rum.. Still Drinking it to this day.. Well later today.. arrgh...
It’s cheap, easy to find, comes in a large bottle, and doesn’t taste like crap. It’s the perfect rum for a rum n’ coke.
OK, first the price - can't be beat. This is the best rum for the money and I'd take it over many more expensive rums. That said, it's not going to wow you with flavor, but it's not too sweet (which is my preference) and it is smoother than most for drinking on the rocks. Since Myers was my default rum, this has definitely replaced it!
This rum has a rummy, smooth flavor. It has some vanilla notes from the oak. It does taste pretty sweet, but in a good way.
This rum is light in body and in taste. Like drinking straight alcohol. Needs to be heavily mixed to be tolerable.
Typical rack liquor in the USVI. It gets a 7 because it not only taste better than Bacardi but its cheaper. The go to mixer is the best I can $ay.
Its fairly mellow, working great in mixed drinks. There is a nice sweet finish of molasses and vanilla. Also used this in an aged eggnog recipe with gosling's rum (as well as with whiskey and cognac) and the final product was superb.
