Cruzan Mango Rum

Cruzan Mango Rum


By Robert Plotkin

One of the underlying precepts of the current cocktail culture is the more delicious the liquor, the more sensational the drink. It's a proposition as irrefutable as gravity. This bodes well for Caribbean rum giant Cruzan who has developed a line of flavor-laden spirits, lead be the altogether luscious Cruzan Mango Rum.

Made in St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands, this latest flavor sensation is produced from a blend of column-distilled rums matured in charred American oak barrels between 2- to 3-years. After aging, the rum is rigorously filtered through activated charcoal to remove impurities and any color. It is then infused with all-natural mango flavorings before being bottled at 54-proof.

Cruzan Mango Rum is first class passage to paradise at steerage prices. It has a lightweight body and a generous, succulent bouquet. Its focused palate is all mango with a touch of natural fruit sweetness on the lingering finish. Everything about this flavored gem screams of a good time in the making.

Cruzan® Citrus Rum is a pleasantly dry and tangy light rum infused with a blend of lemons and oranges. The rum has a satiny, feather-weight body and a bouquet perfectly balanced between the aromas of sliced oranges and lemon zest. Its lively citrus palate quickly fills the mouth before ebbing away in a warm and flavorful finish.

The mega-popular Cruzan range offers a lot of rum for the buck. The line also includes Cruzan Orange Rum, an exuberant spirit endowed with a broad, nuanced palate, mouth-watering Cruzan Guava Rum and award-winning Cruzan Raspberry Rum.
