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 love Cruzan Aged Dark Rum for mixed drinks. This is a bit less harsh, but I still would not want it to be exposed much more than that, so what’s the point? It’s fine, but that is all
I'm on a worldwide rum voyage so I try everything and just about anything I can get my hands on. This one is not bland but easy is a better word. There are some nice notes of nuts, caramel and oak but they just don't stand out. Probably a good rum for people just starting out on their voyage. A little overpriced for what I'm use to at the $40 range. I would've given this a 6 but it is easy to drink so it got a 7. Will not buy again but glad I went there! Definitly better than Bacardi if your fixing a cocktail.
Bottle purchased at Hy Vee. Pours medium gold in color. Mild aroma of caramel and toasted barley. Sweeter and thicker honey flavor than the Cruzan aged rum. A good mixer but not for neat sipping.
For the price, definitely a solid 8. Not sweet, not harsh, very dry and oaky. Earthy, just a hint of caramel, maybe even pecan?
One of my top three so far. Relaxing, even aroma and smooth flavor, great neat or mixed. Opens up even more (just beautifully) if let to breathe for a while in the glass. Starting in 2021, it is getting a bit difficult to find in stock anywhere in the U.S.
"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."
