White Rum

Category: Unaged Fresh Cane Juice Rum

Date Tasted:
Country: Haiti

Clear color. Tropical aromas and flavors of bananas foster, cherry fruit leather, spicy mango-chive compote, and walnut oil and nougat with an oily, soft, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, delightful, long finish imparting notes of powdered sugar, toasted meringue, and praline. A round and warming, and slightly funky white Rum with lovely layers of tantalizing flavors.

Unaged Fresh Cane Juice Rum

Fresh cane juice rums are made with fresh sugar cane juice instead of molasses, but are not AOC or DO, products such as Martinique Rhum, Haitian Rhum or Cachaça. These are often of excellent quality with nutty, spicy flavors and a tangy finish and are perfect for cocktails or with the best examples, ideal as a sipping rum.
