I discovered this while in St. Croix. A rum liqueur to be sure. The sweetest thing on my shelf. I use it when i do not want to use up my pricey real vanilla

Not many people expect a nice vanilla note in their mixed rum drink. Crowd pleaser.

Ok I'm going to start by yes this is a flavored rum not an aged or dark etc but if you are looking for a easy drinking perfect mixing flavoured rum this is it !!! Put a bottle in the freezer and drink straight or want a Vanilla Coke with a kick this rum is awesome for that , I love vanilla and I love Coke so wow great for a hot summer day so easy drinking that you might want to have two bottles on hand .The best flavoured rum I've had so far

I'm not much for flavored rums, but this one isn't bad. My wife bought this for herself, but I've been hitting it now & then. Not great, but drinkable.

I bought this specifically for a few cocktails we wanted to try. The drinks turned out as good as I thought. Definitely keeping this one in the bar.

Nothing too crazy, just a basic flavored rum. It's pretty ridiculously sweet but is still good for what it is. Definitely one of the best flavored rums that I have ever had.

I got my 1st taste of Cruzan Vanilla in the Virgin Islands. I've always liked rum, but had never had flavored rum before. I liked it and got some to take home. I tried it in Coke and it quickly became my go to drink. One day all I had was Sam's Choice Cola and used that. I like it even better! I did a blind taste test at a party using Cruzan Vanilla, Coke, Pepsi & Sam's Choice. Out of 8 people, 7 preferred the Sam's Choice! I'm now known for Cruzan Vanilla & Sam's Choice and when we have parties, most people ask for it.

If you want that vanilla flavor in a pinch for sure get your hands on this. My only problem is that I think its just a bit too sweet. It did what it set out to do and I'm not complaining, but it's SWEET Is set to 11, really could bring it down to 9.

Do your like authentic imitation vanilla flavoring added to your rum like a perfumed stripper in a small midwestern town, well this is the rum for you. This rum took me back to a bachelor party where a glittered covered pair of DD pummeled me in the face until nearly unconscious smelling like.... vanilla

So if you like the fake breast implant like stripper vanilla flavor coupled with mass produced rum, then this rum is for you. I was drug to a Kenny Chesney concert sponsored by Cruzan rum by my wife. That and the homeless person I saw in St Thomas drinking Cruzan rum are the memories that come rushing back to me every time I see this brand of rum. It's not Cruzan's fault that they were the preferred rum of homeless people in the U.S. Virgin Islands but they sure as hell need to answer for sponsoring Kenny Chesney.

Not even a mixer can cover the painful fake vanilla flavor used in this rum. Serve this to your guests after they are wasted and topless in the pool. In summary, when the fake boobs come out then bring out the Cruzan Vanilla.

I like to use vanilla to tame down other fruit flavored rums. This is ok but not strong enough to make much of a difference.
