Planas Rum

Pale slivery straw color. Aromas of coconut confection, sweet corn, banana cream, vanilla taffy, and citrusy tonic water with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a warming, medium-long saline, lime blossom, and allspice finish. A tidy rum well-suited to Cuba Libres.

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.
