With several flavor palettes ranging from fruity and grassy to caramel and cinnamon, it can be enjoyed neat or in a cocktail as we all know.
Let’s get a very quick over view of what that sweet stuff is made from;
Rum is made from either fermented sugarcane juice or molasses that is distilled to become alcohol at about 80 proof or higher.
Molasses-based rums take over 11 tons of molasses to make one gallon of 110-proof rum, which is what the majority of rums on the market today are made from.
Gone are the days when it could only be enjoyed with coke, todays drinker demands sophistication. Next time you are hosting a party or serving a customer, impress them with a Bermudian Dark ‘n’ Stormy or Caribbean inspired Mai Tai. If you are drinking rum on the rocks or bringing a bottle to your next house warming, you will want to aim for a higher quality rum with more complexities or richness – try an añejo or agricole.
Gauge a rum’s quality by taste for the price, but keep in mind, you can’t go too far wrong!
