Thank you so much for the news highlight about Cruzan and the interview w/ Gary Nelthorpe. He is so knowledgeable, and personable too! He sounds like the kind of guy you could grab a glass of sipping rum or a cocktail, and talk about the islands and the rum industry for hours. I enjoyed the entire interview.

Aged dark Cruzan is my "go-to" product for rum and tonics, rum punches, and even "Mike Tais". And Cruzan Blackstrap is so unique, that it can be either a cocktail's floater, a sipper over ice, or even poured over pancakes. Cruzan Estate Diamond was one of my most favorite sippers and I was devastated when it was taken off the market. Sign me up for a case if/when it ever comes back.

Again, thanks Ed for sharing the interview!

Well, I for one am glad forrest's reputation remains intact. Cruzan Blackstrap is unique among the Cruzan flavored rums in that it is made from aged rum. Add some high quality molasses flavor and color and you have a good rum for mixing or enjoying with some ice.

I really like it with ginger ale, but I'm almost out of Blackstrap so it's going to be time to head to St Croix.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.

Young, try this one out. 2oz Black strap 4oz water juice 1/2lime and 2spoons brown sugar, then add a couple of ice cubes. Its a grog using blackstrap and I love it. Nice thing is its a simple cocktail you can make with normal house hold stuff.
