Buy Different Types of Rums

Are you a big fan of Rum? If yes, then it is important to know about the different types of Rum that you can taste. At Hello Drinks Superstore, you can find different varieties of Rum at affordable prices.

Lets take a look at the different types of Rum:

  • Aged Rum: This type of Rum has a bronze colour that comes from the cask itself. Also, caramel is an additive that gives the Rum a rich deep colour to Gold Rum.
  • Dark Rum: The dark colour of the Rum comes from the third distillation. It is strong to drink with a deeper colour. Dark Rums can be flavoured with desired spices and coconut to bring a richer taste.

  • Light Rum: Light Rum is also known as silver or white Rum. Producers of this Rum filter the liquor until it's free from impurities. They have a sweet but subtle flavour.

In addition to the above-mentioned Rums, there are other types too including, English Rum, Spanish Rum, and French Rum.

Check out some best Rums to try!

The best light Rum is the Plantation 3 Star White Rum for those who go the other way. It acts as a tribute to its Caribbean roots with brown sugar, honey, coffee, and the spicy kick of vanilla and cloves - a bittersweet and light-bodied Rum.

For connoisseurs of dark Rum, Goslings Black Seal Rum is the best choice. You can't make a decent Dark and Stormy without the rich and intricate flavour profile of butterscotch, vanilla, and caramel. It's the perfect marriage of flavour and elegance.

Those looking for a lesser strain on their wallet but still want to enjoy quality Rum can choose Bacardi Carta Blanca White Rum. A popular choice for cocktails with a distinct floral and fruity note. It's light, aromatic, with hints of vanilla and almonds.

Light Rums are commonly used in cocktails, whereas "golden" and "dark" Rums are typically consumed straight or neat, iced "on the rocks". Further, light Rum can be used in cooking too.
