Customer Rating
Cruzan is a golden single barrel rum of some renown, having been made on St. Croiz since the mid-eighteenth century. The rums used for the single barrel release - the distillery's top-of-the-range offering - are aged up to twelve years and spend a year marrying in new oak after blending before each cask is bottled individually.

Cruzan Single Barrel Rum Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by TF

    Nose :  Ginger, burnt rubber, baked bananas with brown sugar (getting hungry again).  Pretty intense.  Some citrus and passionfruit notes as it develops, also hazelnuts.  A very complex nose.

    Palate:   Silky-smooth. Cake spices, banana, demerara sugar, almonds, prunes, apricots.  A really classy character that keeps on developing.

    Finish:  Long, smooth and quite amazingly complex.  We like.

    Comment:  One of the first rums I ever tried - just before it disappeared from our shelves for several years.  Great to have it back - like welcoming home an old friend.

    The original single barrel is the best.

    This rum is NOT the same style as zaya or zacapa; unfair to compare. It IS a quality rum. If you like the oak in your high end rums, this one has it x10. It balances nicely with cola, but is also nice on its own as a smooth sipper if you want to get away from a mouth full of diabetes for a bit. This cruzan is more like a cheap brugal 1888, and much better than tommy bahama gold. I'd say its totally worthy. If you have bacardi oakheart, throw it away. This is the REAL oakheart

    I finally got a chance to try this rum after hearing a lot of good things and was suitably impressed. I'm a big fan of the aforementioned rums Zaya and Zacapa and this didn't disappoint, definitely a great buy for the price.

    Please don't waste this rum on mixers, you have the rest of the Cruzan lineup for that but this is a sipping rum. It might not taste as complex as it smells but still a great and extra smooth rum, I would give it 9/10.

    Total agreement with the previous post. Nice rum and an excellent mixer, but definately not a sweet sipper like Zaya or Zacapa.

    Better than most, but not in the same league as Zaya or Zacapa.
