- Light rum
Light rum (also known as "silver" or "white" rum), is a dry, light-bodied
rum, light in color and lightly sweet in flavor. It is produced from sugarcanejuice and molasses, and normally has a short aging period.
Unlike other various
rums which are aged in charred oak casks, light rum is simply aged in plain oak casks or stainless steeltanks, so it remains clear.
Light rum is generally 40% ABV. It is frequently flavored with orange,
lemon, or other tropical fruits.
