We enjoyed the tour of the small distillery. It was less than an hour and we learned a bit about rum and rum making. The rum tasting at the end of the tour was great.

How much is round trip taxi fare from where the cruise ships dock? I've read estimates of $10 per person but not sure if that is one way or round trip. If one way, is this place worth a $40 taxi ride?

The taxis there vary wildly on prices. If you can,get a group together to go. If you go as a group,the fare will be substantially lower.
