Dark Rum

These rums are dark due their higher molasses content. and the fact they are matured in heavily charred-oak barrels, with most having a sweeter taste and often added with flavourings of spices, caramel and vanilla. Many of these are referred to as Navy rums since British sailors were issued a 'daily tot' of dark rum during their 17th century warring voyages throughout the world, particularly in and around the Caribbean.

Try a dark rum next time you mix a Daiquiri, or go for a classic Dark 'n' Stormy using Goslings Black Seal from Bermuda.
