I found this in a corner of my bar and thought I'd return to it after an absence of some months just to try something opposite to what I've been discussing which is the blending typically done by rum producers.
This rum is from the U.S. Virgin Islands, and is from a reputed producer. It is from one barrel according to the label, and NAS.
It is very good with light notes of sugar or molasses, a good wood component and a lightly spicy finish.
I would call it relatively neutral in palate and going more for the "golden" style (not rich and rummy in a dark caramel way).
Nice drink but I think blending in the end really does produce the best results whether for Cruzan or any other producer. Also, or what may be saying the same thing, blending permits consistency of taste.
