St. Augustine Pot Distilled Rum
St. Augustine // Florida, USA
Made from regional sugarcane syrup and molasses, St. Augustine is fermented, aged and pot-distilled on site in the eponymous city. It is bottled at 45% ABV. The resulting color is pale straw.
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.
"For a rum with no age statement, the nose is surprisingly complex: brown sugar, vanilla, Coco Lopez, wood. On the tongue, there's emergent pepper, along with an underpinning of fragrant anise, some dried pear, and a touch more wood. This is extremely pretty as a sipper, wearing its higher proof well."
