Distilled at St Croix in the US Virgin Islands, Cruzan is the only distillery on the island. This is made with rums aged for up to 12 years, which are blended and allowed to marry for a further year in new charred oak barrels. Then it's bottled without blending. So yeah, it's kinda sorta single barrel. In a way. It's delicious though, and that's what counts!
Nose: Simple and easy going, with a beautifully fruity character, as well as buttery toffee and hazelnut. Not to mention the lovely vanilla notes!
Palate: Subtle spices and burnt sugar, with notes of tingling oak, charcoal, molasses and butterscotch. Develops with notes of marzipan and Nutella.
Finish: Cold coffee, caramel and vanilla lattes, lovely finish...
