Let me start by making clear: this is not a neat sipper; however, what this rum does for cocktails is magical. 0.5 oz in almost any tiki drink's rum blend adds a whole other dimension of molasses-y goodness. My secret weapon for many rum cocktails.

Smooth. Tasty. Neat or in my favorite mixed drink, Pain Killer. This is a favorite of mine.

It's really good as a mixer, on the rocks, but the sweetness is a little heavy.

Too sweet in my opinion so as to prevent one from drinking quickly or in great quantity. Flavour like butterscotch. Not bad but not great.
Edit-- 4 months later and still sitting on counter without being able to drink. Everything is just better than this sweet syrup.

Ever since my first taste of this, I’ve loved it. In-your-face unique rum.!

My first Black Strap Rum. What to do with it? Of course an illegal Dark N’ Stormy.
Raw I love the deep color and aroma. The taste is sweet with a nice finish. I was pleasantly surprised for the price.
Mixed it made for a nice relaxing drink to sip.

I have tried other Cruzan Rums so I saw this at a small store.
Nice on the nose. I like slightly sweet rums and this is good for me. Cruzan is a budget rum and this is pretty good for the price.

This one definitely has a weight to it, it's sugary and very molasses-forward but not all in a bad way. It's more a less a mixer that shines pretty well in Jungle Bird, Pina Colada, and I'm sure it would be good in the Pina Colada adjacent Painkiller. It's sippable if you prefer a sweet sipper with a bold molasses note.

Overall: 6.5 - unique and worth a try.

There absolutely is some sweetness going on here. A nice sipper / very nice mixer. Beautiful dark color. Aroma is a bit harsh with alcohol. Excellent price point. -Cheers!

Tasted at Laka Lono on 1/26/22. The gem of the Cruzan lineup mostly because they have no competition. At $18 a bottle, this is a must keep rum for tiki drinks. Molasses aroma, molasses flavor. Very black. Great licorice chocolate sweetness without the anise flavor, if that makes sense. Delightful.
