Clear color. Aromas and flavors of nougat, creamy meringue, overripe plantain skin, and yeasty white cake with a soft, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and an appealing, medium-long vanilla-coconut custard, pepper, and wet stone finish. A pleasant creamy, lightly sweet rum that will mix well.

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.
