Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This rum is just amazing for what it is,
For once its very cheap I think its like 10$ a fifth here, compared to morgan which is 17-18$.
Is it an AMAZING RUM with SUPER complexity, no.
But its an AMAZING staple rum. It sits well in ALL mixed drinks, its not over powering in its flavor, however it stands out and is very palatable. Oaky flavor with a good bit of vanilla. If you are someone who likes simple and good rums this is a must and probably your only.
Notes (too long did not read)
-Simple (can be a minus or plus)
-Vanilla Oakish Flavour
Ran out of mixing rum so I picked this up along with a new bottle of aged rum. Just to give it a chance I figured I'd try it on the rocks. I expected a harsh raw rum but got a nice tasting smooth drink. I'm no connoisseur,and I judge on taste and smoothness alone. No fancy adjectives as my taste isn't that refined. However this rum has a pleasant taste and nice smooth feel. Amazing value at this price.
Cruzan Gold is a very decent rum, not a great rum but still very drinkable.
It's a nice sipper and mixes well. The price is great for a solid rum.
Inoffensive, nice dry rum. A little taste of oak. Just bought a bottle at Walgreens, this stuff is better than all the Bacardi crap which fills their shelves.
Nice rum at a great price Cruzan makes good rums at great prices great as mixer works with just about anything.
Your basic rum. No great wafts of baking spice. Not a Jamaican fruit bomb. No sweet notes of sherry. Just a plain old fashioned rum kept in a refill barrel for a couple of years or so. Youthful, but a solid performer if you don't expect too much from it. Good for mixing, but also good to sip even if it's one dimensional with it's caramel and vanilla.
This rum surprised me. It is light in color and an easy sipper. Mixes well also.
Cruzan Gold is not meant to be a neat sipper although most of the outlets in Caribbean giving free tasting sessions of the Cruzan so want you to think about it as a neat sipper. Mix it with Coke and you will still get the offputting smell and a strong burn, so better to skip this one.
This makes a wonderful addition to your rum repertoire at home. St. Croix produces many nice rums at better than average prices. Easily accessible at almost any liquor store in the States. These key attributes combined with a nice flavor, though the complexity is not there, makes this a nice rum for mixing.
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"
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.
