Proof66 Notes

Cruzan Estate Dark rum is listed as a "dark rum" (though not nearly as dark as the likes of Meyer's and other more well-known labels) and also "the cleanest rum of its kind." Due to its light aging and flavor, we have opted to list it in the category of "aged rums." This expression uses a blend of rums aged between 2 and 4 years "to create a perfect result every time." The aging occurs in charred American oak. The label was re-branded in 2014 and dropped the 2yr age statement suggesting that there might be younger rums in the blend.

Cruzan Rum Distillery is located on St Croix and recalls the time from Christopher Columbus's "discovery" of the islands and the naming of the natives as crucians after the name of the island. This eventually became the name "cruzan." The distillery was founded in 1706 and had a variety of owners. The label is pronounced "CREW-shun" (not "crew-ZAN") after the native Crucians of St Croix.

In my opinion Cruzan should be every bar's "value rum" workhorse, and this rum is another addition to their lineup of cheap stuff that still work great in tons of cocktails. You can put it in everything from a Rum n' Coke to a 15 ingredient tiki drink and it will taste good without breaking the bank or making you ill. Three stars isn't a glowing endorsement but it's not meant for fancy sipping, it's meant for mixing and it does that very well.

Not a bad flavor, a little light-bodied. Mixes well. Not what Id call a sipping rum, but good value for the money.

A smooth rum that is good enough to be sipped. Not as full bodied and flavorful as some but unbeatable value.
