White Rum is light-bodied
and has a sweet taste
. This makes it a perfect choice for many classic Rum cocktails
, such as Mojito, Pina Colada, or Daiquiri. However, this is not to say that white Rum can’t stand on its own. Because it can and there are many good quality white Rums that will surprise you with their pleasant character when you try them neat.
Also known as "silver"
Rum, white Rum is usually aged for about a year
, but even up to a few years. It is aged in stainless steel tanks or plain oak casks, which lend it a light blonde colour.
Same as dark Rum, white Rum is made
from sugarcane juice or molasses, but usually has a shorter distillation period.
