Drinking different kinds of Rum
Rum taste varies depending on the ingredients used, aging methods, and even how they are stored. In Jamaica, there are pots that are used to produce golden and darker rums. In Cuba, lighter rums are usually made in columns. In Scotland, rum gets distilled twice to acquire the best of the distillate.
For cocktails, white rum is a favorite because it is light and crisp, usually un-aged. Alternately, dark rum is aged in oak, giving intense flavors and spicy notes. The navy rum, also known as a dark tipple, is a great mix of the light column still, pot still, and demerara rum. Then there is spiced rum, which is made by adding various spices to a golden rum base.
