Cruzan Single Barrel rum

Cruzan Single Barrel

Virgin Islands, U.S. | Aged | 40% ABV

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."

Tasty, but not quite great

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.

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.

Straight out of the bottle and into the glass I'd say it's a 7/10. You give it around 45mins-1hour and you have something beautiful here.

A nice oaky flavor that works well for sipping. One of my top three so far.

My review is for the old schooner style labeled bottle. I have not sampled recent bottles. This was a gift when it was rather new to the market several years back. The rum was very light, had a bit of wood in the finish and it's palate was toffee and caramel. The nose had a bit of alcohol on it but more vanilla and caramel. Just a bit of burn on the finish but nothing rough. Reminds me of Diplomatico Reserva, with just a bit more bite. Was one of my first sipping rums and it was a good one. Disappeared for some time in my area and has recently shown up again.

Great sipper. I usually prefer a heavier pot still rum but this is a fine example of just how enjoyable the lighter flavours of column still rum can be.

Affordable too here in BC, Canada

Vraiment bon comme rhum. Il surprend par rapport au prix. Son odeur de miel est complexe. Vieilli 5 ans il surpasse plusieurs rhum de même age.
