Neo Rum

Category: White Rum

Date Tasted:
Country: Bahamas
Alcohol: 40%
Opaque clear color. Aromas of fresh cane juice, pineapple upside down cake, and distant passion fruit with a round, crisp, off-dry light-to-medium body and a tingling, engaging, medium-long pineapple rind and taro root custard finish. A lightly fruity rum with just the right amount of funk.

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.
