  • Dark Rum
    AKA Black Rum. Usually aged (but not always) and has additional caramel-coloring added to provide the dark/black color. Some are distilled from blackstrap molasses. No specific type or size barrel required for aging nor is there a set time required for aging in most countries with a few exceptions.

Tasting Notes

"Caramel, vanilla and just a whiff of heat and wood appear on the nose; the temperature turns back up on the palate, but it's softened by intimations of baked pear and more fragrant vanilla, all of which dissipate quickly on a short finish further distinguished by a hint of tannin. Reasonable as a sipper but better with a splash of mineral water."
