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."

I'm generally not a fan of rum aged in bourbon, but this is nice because it still has a touch of rum sweetness (though I wouldn't mind a little more sweetness).

Tastes and smells of oak, bourbon, caramel, a light spice, and smoke. Very smooth. A great rum for the money.

Naturally sweet (that means no added sugar), smooth, and full of oak and bourbon overtones. This is one of Foursquare's finest. It's 180 degrees away from all the sugared rums that are so popular around here. It's really good...and it's already so smooth that you don't need to add ice or water. Best enjoyed neat.

In the bourbon/scotch-like category, would get buried in cocktails and not overly complex, but a solid rum sipper. N: almost scotch-like, butter and oak. More subtle than most other rums. T/F: lighter spice and molasses, ends quite sweet. Not overly complex, but tasty. Toasted oak dominates.

Schönes helles, sattes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase weich und samtig. Ein ganzer Teppich voller karamellisierten Blumen breitet sich aus und du pflückst die schönsten davon. Der schon mit vielen tropischen Früchten gefüllte und mit Vanille Schoten Marck eingeriebene Holz Korb bietet sich zum verstauen an.
Am Gaumen ehrlich und direkt. Du zupfst die karamellisierten Blütenblätter ab und lässt sie auf der Zunge zergehen. Die tropischen Früchte sind kandiert und mit Vanille verfeinert. Holz, Harz und Tannine sind präsent aber in keiner Weise aufdringlich. Mmmm, du willst dieses Körbchen auslecken.
Im Abgang klingen Karamell und Früchte noch lange nach, Holz und Vanille noch etwas länger und die Zunge zerfällt zu Staub.
Ein toller Bajan Rum der im Sommer sicherlich ein wahrer Genuss sein wird. Für Barbados Fans, Rum-ohne-Zucker Liebhaber, und alle Geniesser.

Beautiful light, rich amber in the glass.
Soft and velvety on the nose. A whole carpet full of caramelized flowers spreads and you pick the most beautiful of them. The wooden basket already filled with lots of tropical fruit and rubbed with vanilla pod marck lends itself to stow away.
Honest and direct on the palate. You pluck off the caramelized petals and let them melt on your tongue. The tropical fruits are candied and enhanced with vanilla. Wood, resin and tannins are present but in no way intrusive. Mmmm, you'll want to lick this basket out.
Caramel and fruit linger on the finish, wood and vanilla a bit longer and the tongue crumbles to dust.
A great Bajan rum that will certainly be a real treat in the summer. For Barbados fans, rum-without-sugar lovers, and all connoisseurs.

A bit better than Doorly 12y, but also pricier, the McCoy sports typical Bajan nose of mixed tropical fruits, mainly citrus, oak, some hints of chocolate and spices, rich, spicy, fruity taste, followed by oaky tones and long spicy aftertaste with a pleasant sour twist at the end. Compared it with Doorly 12y side by side, McCoy is a tad spicier, bit more charred barrel in it, a bit more depth, but in principal very similar profile of scent, taste and aftertaste - it is the same distillery after all. Compared side-by-side with Foursquare Sixty-Six 12y: it is very similar, the depth and richness is on-par to me, the only difference I can recognize is the charred barrel component and sour-mash-like ending of the taste profile. Considering McCoy is some 25% more expensive - Sixty-Six wins it here for me. Nevertheless - this is a must-have (or must-try if you will) for all Bajan rum enthusiasts.

This rum has hints of vanilla, oak, caramel notes, and a bit of bourbon-like qualities coming from the the barrel. This would be a great rum for a bourbon drinker or someone who likes Foursquare.

Notes of caramel, charred oak, and hints of tobacco
Smokey aftertaste

The first sip is a definite smoky bourbon flavor, then the finish is all rum. Very smooth. A nice subtle molasses finish, but not sweet.
