3 Year Old White Rum

Category: White Rum

Date Tasted:
Country: Trinidad & Jamaica
Alcohol: 40%
Clear color. Aromas and flavors of roasted coconut with mar, cherries in vanilla extract, magic marker, and carob almond bar with a supple, crisp, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, refreshing, medium-long finish with nuances of minerals, copper, peppered figs, and egg nog finish. A lightly funky, cane-y, pot still influenced rum that will be great for tiki cocktails and daiquiris.

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.
