Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Smooth body and finish for the price would definently buy again .. good for mixing too .
For an entry level, opening price point this is a quality rum. Just sweet enough, mellow easy. It's a lot of rum at a reasonable price.
Not sure why to choose the white over this rum at the same price. Much better for classic mixing drinks. Holds up slightly higher in sipping also.
Cruzan Gold is my favorite all around rum, mainly for mixing. Smooth, flavorful, and nice aroma, without braking the bank. I have paid between $13 and $16 per 750 or liter, depending where I buy it. I make Mai Tais with Cruzan Gold and Coruba dark (see my review of Coruba). Not enough flavor, in my opinion, for sipping, as I like the darker rums for that, but not bad in a pinch, especially with an ice cube to mellow out the bite. Awesome with cola. It gets an 7 for being the best I've found so far in it's price range.
I picked this one up because I had tried the Cruzan White a little while ago. I'm pretty happy with both the white and this dark aged rum. It's nothing spectacular, but pretty good. The aroma I can only describe as what I expect rum to smell like. It is fairly smooth with a bit of a bit at the end. I will likely use this mainly for mixing. At just $11 a bottle, this seems like a real bargain to me.
A value mixer not a lot happening in the flavour profile initially. Its quite astringent on the nose, there is a bit of what I believe is attributed as vanilla happening when it sits on the palate. A high end 5 verging on a 6
This St Croix based rum is truly delicious. For some reason it tastes like TRASH in the states, but when you get the non watered down version in the USVI, it's a great little rum with a consistent flavor.
It's ok, definitely fare FARE from the worst I've tasted but not the best. As fare as good aged rumx go this is a solid benchmark. I'd definitely add this to my collection as a good and solid standard.
This is my favorite cheap rum. Far better than Captain Morgan, Pirate Bay, Burnets, and Bacardi. The 5/10 says it all, "Easily consumable in a bind"
Its fairly mellow, working great in mixed drinks. There is a nice sweet finish of molasses and vanilla. Also used this in an aged eggnog recipe with gosling's rum (as well as with whiskey and cognac) and the final product was superb.
Really like Cruzan 9, especially for the price. I was looking forward to trying a new Cruzan rum that I can sip on the rocks. Good aged rum for the price. Please note that this not a superior aged rum, but is good for those who like rum (on the rocks) while on a budget. As importantly, Cruzan 9 is not currently available in PA (11/2016).
Great for the price. This is a staple in our bar. Use for any cocktail and be pleasantly surprised.
People like the Cruzan name due to their flavored rums for mixing; this is a great way to use the Cruzan product for alternative party drinks like rum and cola. It's a solid rum for the price.
Bargain price and good with coke. Always have a bottle handy.
Bought a few bottles of this at the price club on St Thomas (can't remember the name), cheap, cheap, cheap. It sure added to the fun on that trip
Quite nice neat. Probably the best rum for the least money on the market.
Got this one for less than $10 a bottle. Great one to have in stock for parties.
À venir prochainement.............................
I'm a novice. Out of the limited rums I've tried, this is my favorite to sip.
I saw it on the shelf for $12. Have mixed it with tonic. I experimented with a few other concoctions including grape juice, bitters, lemon. It make a nice rum and tonic. Drop in a bit of bitters for a nice cocktail. Not one to sip neat, but a terrific value.
Agree with the others so far, really good choice for a different tasting rum and coke; especially for the price. Tried it first in St. Thomas and brought back a bottle thinking it wasn't available stateside. I clearly just never noticed it because it isnt hard to find at all haha. Awesome value and for the price, you can't not give it a try if you're a rum and coke guy.
This rum is great for mixing. It has a good price point and doesn't stand out in a tiki drink.
A tremendous bargain. And at this price point (about $15) a pretty solid and decent rum. Hard to go wrong with this rum. I thoroughly enjoy this as a mixer.
This lightly aged rum has a decent amber colour accompanied by hints of smoke and sweet smells. Straight up it's harsh and lacks flavour other than a little sweetness, however it makes a decent rum/cola. For the price, its one of the best mixing rums on the market and belongs in everyone's bar.
