Cruzan Single Barrel rum

Cruzan Single Barrel

Virgin Islands, U.S. | Aged

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."

Great rum, think it should rate higher than a 7. Reasonable price too.

I had to go all the way to Las Vegas to get a bottle of this , It was one of the first "fine" rums i ever had. I did have Cruzan white back in 1975 and it was not good. They've come a long way.

A bit harsh straight, a drop of water helped.

Harder to find. Excellent straight up or on the rocks. Can be used with cola, but would rather use something else as this us hard to get,

A pretty good sipper. In my opinion similar to bourbon. Not as sweet as most rums. An ice cube helps to mellow it out some. Decent flavor but not as rich and flavorful as others.

Has some sweet, some smoke and lots of oak in there, so a lot more complexity than most aged rums, making it a great sipper. Would merit 8.5 on taste alone, but I like the new bottle, which is not pictured here. Finally, reasonably cheap if bought in the US where the molasses subsidies help it out.

Tannic and vegetal. A great cocktail primer.

I like this rum as a mixer, it´s flavorful and mixed in tropical and tiki drinks it shines.

Here in the UK it used to be something like 37.5% ABV but it is now at 40%. While I usually prefer my rums at 40%, I think that the 37.5% was the better drink. The oak tones used to be more pronounced, especially on the nose. However, while the nose is more spirity (as naturally the palate is as well) the oak is still plain to see on the palate. But while I like the bite to it, I have to be in the right mood and there are plenty of other rums out there that are smoother and ultimately easier to drink. I like it, but it could be better.
