Gran Reserva Maestro de Ron

Category: White Rum

Date Tasted:
Country: Puerto Rico
Alcohol: 40%
Pale slivery straw color. Mild aromas of soda raisin bread pudding, powdered sugar, and pink pepper with a satiny, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length almond and coconut milk, white chocolate nuts and dried fruits, spiced plantains, and wet stone finish. A smooth, refined, and nicely balanced white rum.

White Rums are generally light-bodied (although there are a few heavy-bodied White Rums in the French islands). They are usually clear and have a very subtle flavor profile. If they are aged in oak casks to create a smooth palate they are then usually filtered to remove any color. White Rums are primarily used as mixers and blend particularly well with fruit flavors.
