Cruzan Diamond Light Rum
Cruzan // US Virgin Islands
Cruzan's Diamond Light is a blend of rums five years and older, made from imported molasses, aged in American oak and charcoal filtered to remove the color from aging. It is said to be an homage to the Original Estate Diamond sugar mill plantation. Founded in 1760, Cruzan is now owned by Beam/Suntory.
Silver RumAKA Blanco, Light, White. Rum that is usually aged (but not always) and carbon-filtered to remove any color. No specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for aging for most countries with a few exceptions.
"Diamond Light opens with sweet vanilla and nougat on the nose, then follows that up with woody notes, more vanilla and a good deal of alcoholic heat on the palate. An additional, slightly funky vegetal component plays against the sweetness that lingers on the short-to medium finish."
