Rum is a spirit distilled from sugar (such as sugarcane or molasses). White Rums are light-bodied. They are usually clear and have a subtle flavor. White Rums are ideal for mixers. Gold Rums are medium-bodied and have spent several years aging in oak casks, which give them smoother, mellower palates than white rums. Dark Rums are full-bodied, rich, and caramel-dominated. Produced mostly from pot stills and frequently aged in oak casks. Spiced Rums are infused with spices or fruit flavors. They can be white, golden, or dark. Añejo and Age-Dated Rums are aged from different vintages or batches that are mixed together to insure a constant flavor from year to year.
