Gold Rum

Category: Gold Rum

Date Tasted:
Country: Puerto Rico
Alcohol: 40%
Straw color. Green, grassy aromas and flavors of banana peels and leaves, candle wax and starched linen, bananas foster in a cast iron skillet, and cappuccino with mace with a supple, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, breezy finish imparting accents of caramel ice milk in a pewter bowl, wet stones, pepper, and bamboo finish. A excellent gold rum with a mellow finish.

Golden Rums, also known as Amber Rums, are generally medium-bodied. Most have spent several years aging in oak casks, which give them smooth, mellow palates.
