Top 7 Gold Rums to Try

Gold rum is a category of rum that has a distinctive golden color. This color comes from the aging process, as gold rums are aged longer than typical light rums. The extended aging in barrels like bourbon or sherry casks results in rum with a mellow, smooth flavor profile. Drinkers will find gold rum has richer aromas and tastes of caramel, vanilla, and oak compared to lighter rums.

A gold rum’s aging lends it a higher price tag than lighter rums, but aficionados say it’s worth it for rum’s next level of flavor. On rocks or in a cocktail, gold rum allows rum lovers to truly taste the nuances aging adds to the spirit.

Please drink responsibly, be fully accountable with your alcohol consumption, and show others respect.
