We all know that famous line from that famous movie about the rum, right?
There are several types of rum.
For the rum newbies out there, here’s a breakdown of the different types of rum that are on the market:
- Light rum (AKA white or silver rum): This rum has no color, hence the name. It is not aged for long and is very mild, flavor-wise.
- Gold rum (AKA amber rum): This type of rum is aged in wooden casks (the time varies from brand to brand). This contributes to both the color and the flavor of the rum.
- Dark rum (AKA black rum): This rum is aged in wooden casks for a longer amount of time. It has a deep, dark color and a robust smoky-sweet flavor.
- Spiced rum: This rum is aged similarly to dark rum. However, it has added spices and caramel coloring for additional sweetness and flavor.
The type of rum you're going to use is obviously dependent on the type of drink you're planning to mix.
