Cruzan Peach Rum (42 proof) is fairly new to the market. It launched in March of this year in anticipation of Summer and is sure to a huge hit with those who are not normally into the harder alcohol's. It's better than Schnapp's even.
The nose is rich, full-bodied and is a strong peach. It's an inviting peach. The rum is in fact, created with fresh peaches. This makes sense as we are reminded of our Grandfather's peach trees. We will never forget that smell.
A sip brings peaches from beginning to end. The ending burn is only slight. Here again, it's still better than Peach Schnaap's, which is pretty good!
Cruzan Peach Rum is available nationwide for $14.99 for the 750ml bottle. It is seriously, the bomb. It's the best rum we've ever had. Ever!
