Rums, also referred to as silver rums and white rums. In general, light rum has
very little flavour aside from a general sweetness. Gold Rums, are medium-
bodied rums which are generally aged. These gain their dark colour from aging
in wooden barrels. Spiced Rum are rums that obtain their flavour through
addition of spices and, sometimes, caramel. Most are darker in colour, and
based on gold rums. Dark Rum, also known as black rum classes as a grade
darker than gold rum. It is generally aged longer, in heavily charred barrels.
Dark rum has a much stronger flavour than either light or gold rum, and hints
of spices can be detected, along with a strong molasses or caramel overtone.

combination of other spices. London dry gin may not contain added sugar or
colorants, water being the only permitted additive.
