Clear color. Funky aromas of yeasty soda bread, orchard floor kiwi, wet banana leaf, and fresh fennel with a thick, bright, dryish thin body and a hot, breezy wheat grass and died coconut shell finish. A light rum with an interesting anise note.

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.
