Royal Jamaican Gold
Royal Jamaican // Jamaica
The Royal Jamaican line of rums are crafted by National Rums of Jamaica at their Clarendon distillery, which also makes Captain Morgan for much of the world outside of the U.S. The Royal Jamaican label indicates that the rum is pot-stilled and aged in oak barrels, although no age statement is given.
Gold RumRum that is often aged, but can also just have caramel-coloring added to provide color. No specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for aging for most countries with a few exceptions.
"In the glass, the rum presents a medium gold hue. The nose has a moderate amount of the ripe banana typical of the Jamaican style, with a backdrop of oak. Tasting reveals less of the traditional Jamaican “funk” than the nose would suggest, with subtle vanilla and fruit. The finish is dry with a hint of pepper. Neither a magnificent sipper nor a boldly flavored mixer, there are more interesting Jamaicans at this rum’s price point. "
