Cruzan Blackstrap Rum

distilled by Cruzan Rum Distillery - United States Virgin Islands

label image
Black, blackstrap molasses-flavored rum distilled from molasses. Aged two years in used whisky and bourbon barrels.

The sweet flavor and aroma of blackstrap molasses dominates the hearty character of this Navy style rum. Best suited for mixing, Cruzan Blackstrap Rum is a good addition to the bar for adding color to cocktails or topping tropical drinks.

Bottled at 40% alcohol by volume.
Arctic Wolf's review    

 

The Cruzan Rum Company is located on the Island of St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands. The Island of St. Croix is the largest of the US Virgin islands, being approximately 28 miles long and 7 miles wide. Along with the tourism industry and one of the largest oil refineries in the Caribbean, the St. Croix economy is dependent to a large extent upon the Rum Industry as a major engine of their economic growth.

All of the Cruzan Rums are produced using a modern five column distillation method which produces a light bodied rum, the quality of which can be tightly controlled by the five column distillation. The rum is then aged in once used American oak bourbon barrels. The Cruzan Blackstrap Rum is a ‘navy style’ rum which is full of molasses flavour but which is perhaps a lighter bodied rum than one would find in a typical navy rum.

The sample bottle of Cruzan Blackstrap Rum for this review was given to me  by Simon Mooney, the local Brand Ambassador for Beam Global and is pictured below and to the right.  It is bottled at 40 per cent alcohol by volume and is, I believe, aged for two years in the aforementioned American Oak.

Here is an excerpt from my review:

“…Cruzan Blackstrap Rum is an aromatic bombshell. When I opened my bottle  for the very first time, my nostrils were immediately aware of the rich molasses filled aroma in the air which contained strong accents of black coffee and dark licorice….”
