BLACK RUM

Black rum was designed to impart the appearance of age to rums intended for mixing. The term “dark rum,” while in common usage, can be vague and confusing, as it may apply to either black rum or premium aged rums. However, it is very important to distinguish between the two, as they have different uses. A black rum may be made using a wide range of distillation methods: pot, column, or blended, resulting in rum that may be light, medium, or heavy bodied. It tends to have little, if any age, but is defined by the addition of caramel, molasses, or both to the finished rum and is typically much darker in appearance than even fifty years in a barrel could achieve. It remains, to my mind, the only style of rum you should refer to by color, because the addition of color itself is what defines the category. At Smuggler’s Cove, we have found that using a black blended rum is often what we need to create the mouthfeel or flavor we’re looking for in exotic cocktails, and it plays especially well with a broad range of other rums and spirits.
