Proof66 Notes

Cruzan 2yr Estate light rum is a blend of rums aged 2 to 4 years but then undergoes a filtration process that returns it to its light color. This is thought to create a "delicate" rum that brings out oak and vanilla character.

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.

Good cheap rum for mixing, not really for sipping, but cocktails come out nice

Was a Bacardi Light drinker, then tried this. Quite good for rum and Coke or Mojitos. No straight drinking here, though. Excellent mixer with a light vanilla taste. For the price quite worth it

Better than some of the most popular brands, and a great price. Fills the rum spot in my liquor cabinet nicely.

very clean taste, almost no burn, doesn't overpower anything when mixing, it's a perfect mixer for people who don't want to taste any alcohol in their mojito or whatever. I however DO want to taste alcohol in my mixed drinks, which is why I can't rate it any higher because it has absolutely no flavor of its own. a great choice for girls' drinks (or guys that drink girls' drinks), and dirt cheap.

A kickass mixing rum with a nice richness but light flavor. best with coconut water and lime juice. $16 a handle. I prefer over bacardi but not as much as cachaca but the price is incredible so i dont see why i wouldn't stock it

A much better light rum than some of the other big brand names. A little sweetness reminds you of its origin . Has a nice nose that causes me to take a sip straight before mixing. For the price you can't get a higher quality light rum.
