I did a search and couldn't find this product mentioned anywhere, so I thought I'd ask. Has anyone tried the guava rum from Cruzan? I know most flavored rums are frowned upon by the general tiki community, but for me Cruzan has always been a good plain rum (it's usually my go to rum for mixing), so when I saw this I thought maybe it'd be worth a try. So what's everyones opinion?

I have tried it. It's OK... it tastes like what it is: guava flavored rum. I have not been able to find a use for it yet. If you want guava flavor in a drink it seems better to me to use actual guava and a more interesting rum.

maybe it could be used in a Leilani Volcano in lieu of guava nectar/syrup to give that drink more kick...

I didn't think about using it in a leilani volcano. May give that a try this weekend.

I use the Cruzan Coconut Rum, it's pretty good.
