Clear color. Grassy aromas and flavors of sugared dried pineapple, mint chutney, coriander seeds, and rendered fat with a satiny, lively, dryish light body and a peppery, complex, long allspice dram, banana peel, licorice candy, and spiced cake finish. Put this rich flavor bomb in tiki cocktails to add tremendous depth.

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.
