Cruzan Aged Light Rum Review


We had the pleasure of receiving a bottle of Cruzan Aged light rum this month and took it with us on our yearly trip to Martha's Vineyard. Many, many, many drinks were made, and a great many of them with our bottle of Cruzan. We aren't big rum drinkers but we do know what we like and the rich notes and drinks we made came out smooth and delicious.

The Cruzan Aged Light Rum is a clear rum distilled from fermented molasses. Aged 14 months in used whisky and bourbon barrels. It's bottled at 40% alcohol by volume.

One of the drinks we made was the Cruzan Spiced Apple Pie cocktail. We did cool ours down with ice, but the hot version did grace our lips and was great as well.



  • 2 parts Cruzan® 9 Spiced Rum
  • 1/4 part Honey
  • 4 parts Hot Water (we did this but made a bunch and cooled down with ice)
  • 3 Apple Slices
  • Cinnamon

Method: Take 3 slices of apple, honey and a dash of cinnamon and gently muddle in a tumbler. Add rum and top with hot water, giving it a quick stir. Strain mixture into a coffee mug. Add a cinnamon dusted apple slice and 3 skewered Cranberries to garnish.

We highly recommend you trying out Cruzan, and thanks again to Cruzan for sending us a bottle to review.
