Clear color. Fruity aromas and flavors of coconut cream pie, waxy candy wrapper, vanilla buttercream, and pine nuts with a satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, charming, medium-long finish revealing notes of nougat, peppery spice, tres leche cake, and plastic wrap finish. A very tasty, creamy and versatile white rum for sipping or mixing.

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.
