Gold Rum

Gold Rum

Gold rums are produced all over the world with most being aged in oak casks for differing lengths of time, depending on the distiller's objective's for the final results of taste intensity, mouth-feel and length of finish.

The longer it's aged in wood, the more golden the rum, but the usually hot climates where rums are produced means that the longer they are aged, the less that will be left in the barrel, evaporating as the 'angel's share' under such hot conditions as those of the Caribbean.

This is why very old rums attract their higher prices and whose flavours are more definite and complex.
