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

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.!

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.

Was excited about this as a floater for a dark n stormy or a nice rich rum for tiki drinks. It was not what I expected. Think of corn syrup with a little bit of spice on it. Overpowers any cocktail I put it in, with sweet almost fake maple syrup taste.

Better stuff at this price point but it's still nice once in awhile.

Not a bad run for mixed drinks. Definitely wouldn’t drink it straight

It’s a good tool to have in the cocktail toolbox but is more of a cheap trick than an interesting rum. By itself it tastes watery yet alcoholic. There is a slight dark roasted molasses note in there somewhere

I find this rum falls a bit flat when blended with other rums in cocktails. It can overpower the other rums.
