Clear color. Confected, vegetal aromas and flavors of toasted marshmallow, fiddlehead fern, and peanut brittle with a glycerous, bright, dryish light body and a warming, medium-length banana candle finish. An ultra-soft introductory creamy rum for everyday use.

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.
