Cocktails with rum

famous rum brandsRum is an exotic spirit made from molasses or virgin sugar cane. It comes in many different types and is often categorized in colors. The mildest are the Light or White rums, while the Gold and Amber have spent time in some sort of barrel adding to a stronger taste. The Dark rums have been barrel- or even cask-aged for longer, and taste a bit more like whisky and the Black are as rich in flavor like a Guinness. Spiced rums contain flavors from spices and other exotic elements, which gives the rum a unique and interesting character. Some are rested in a few days and others are aged for years. No strict classification system, like the one known from bourbon exists, and consequently any spirit that starts with some form of sugarcane can be called rum. Some rum’s are sweet while others are dry. The taste depends on three basic factors: the duration of the aging process, the type of barrel of said aging and the form of sugarcane used. There is great diversity within the dryness and we recommend that you stock your bar cabinet with different kinds. Rum is obviously enjoyed in a lot of mixed drinks. But it’s also a drink to be enjoyed in its own right.
