Sitting somewhere between its white and dark varieties, gold Rum has a smooth, mellow flavour. While there are no hard and fast rules on the production of golden Rum, they tend to be aged in oak barrels previously used for maturing Bourbon, thus taking on a golden hue as well as an exciting depth of flavour.
Many gold Rum varieties are a unique combination of different rums, expertly mixed by a master blender.
Easy on the palate, gold Rum is ideal in a simple mixed drink or can be a great addition to pretty much any Rum cocktail you fancy. Often with sweet flavour tones such as banana and butterscotch, this spirit is a little taste of sunshine in a glass.
