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."

This is truly one rum you can enjoy sipping neat after dinner. It is smooth with exotic spices leaving a sweet aftertaste. Also excellent Cuba Libre.
Rich in body, smooth, and wonderful aroma. No need for mixers, on the rocks or straight, amazing taste.
Having grown up in the US Virgin Islands - where all types of rums are available and affordable - most Cruzan rum, especially Single Barrel - outshines all of the "famous" brands. Mt. Gay, Bacardi, Appleton, Pusser's don't hold a candle. Cruzan, made on St. Croix - still has the flavor of the rich molasses without tasting like bitter or simply distilled sugar. Bacardi rums - all of them - are especially bad. By the way, you should update your picture - they changed the bottle a few years ago.
I am an avid bourbon and rye drinker. I was recently on a cruise and decided to try one of their premium rums.
I happened on Cruzan and was surprised. It was sweeter then bourbon for sure, it was not subtle in many flavor areas. The nose was confusing, just so much going on, but the caramel, cherry, vanilla and molasses were evident.
The taste followed the nose and I enjoyed the punch of the caramel, almost tasted like an old fashioned.
The finish was sweet, almost like Dr. Pepper.
A gyönyörű külső ( díszdoboz + üveg ) végtelenül cool...pohárba töltés után betölti a szobát a virágos , gyümölcsös citrusos rum illat, fantasztikus éppúgy mint az íze, nemtúl édes ,gazdag, alkoholt alig érezni a szájban...sima, csak ajánlani tudom az ár/minőség szempontjából is ( én 22 euróért tudtam beszerezni még az öregebb hosszúnyakú flaskát ) Lecsengése picit rövidebb mint azt az ember elvárná ( ezért a mínusz egy pont ) de fincsi ;) egészségetekre !!
"Larry Olmsted from Forbes reviews Cruzan Single Barrel rum"
"Cruzan Single Barrel rum review by Whisked Foodie"
It’s very little and slightly floral with hints of fruit. It’s very light, pleasant and well balanced. .
"The rum is nice, it is well balanced with a nice mouthfeel. It offers little by way of alcohol burn and has a relatively long but inoffensive finish."
