A 19th century serif style called Detroit or mansard. The lowercase of Outstanding by "bobistheowl" is in the ballpark for CRUZAN

More info by Luc Devroye http://luc.devroye.org/bobistheowl.html
Outstanding is based on Big Vintage Letters by Big Letters Org http://bigletters.org/big-decorative-vintage-letters.html With some digging it might be possible to find the original 19th century source.
Note that the Outstanding font has awkward sizing. Resize the glyphs to about 40% and they work much better.
Relatively minor editing of Outstanding could produce a pretty close facsimile of CRUZAN.

Found the 19th century source of the letters used to make Outstanding. It's _Cameo_, patented in 1874 and sold by Mackellar Simiths & Jordan. There is also a digital version by "Character" at abfonts http://abfonts.freehostia.com/
Open the page, follow the link in the third paragraph to _list of all fonts_, page down to _CameoAntique_.
