Alc/vol: 40% to 45%

Is a sweet spirit. It is clear, amber or dark brown produced in Jamaica, Cuba and other Caribbean countries. Sugar cane is harvested, chopped and ground to extract the juice. Water is added to the remaining mulch and it is ground once again to extract the maximum amount of sugar. Both juices are mixed together then filtered. The juice is heated (sometimes) fermented and distilled. Distilled water is then added to bring the rum back to consumable levels (40% alc/vol). Dark rums are sweeter than light rums. Best enjoyed straight up, on the rocks, in mixed drinks, cocktails and tall drinks. Blends well with fruit, fruit juices, dairy products, carbonated drinks, coffee, hot chocolate, almost all liqueurs, vodka and brandy.
