You'll also find this called Amber Rum. This rum is aged in wooden casks, which gives it that golden color. Those wooden casks also change the flavor of the rum a bit - making this rum varietal taste more smoky-sweet. The longer rum is aged, the darker it will become. The main difference between white (or light) rum and gold rum is aging. White rum is aged for less time than this variety which changes the color and flavor.
No, gold rum and dark rum are different. Gold rum is a golden, amber hue. Dark rum is well aged rum from charred barrels. Both are rich in flavor, but dark rum is more full bodied and has more of a molasses flavor than gold rum.
Yes, but it's not going to taste the same. Since gold rum has a darker color and bolder flavor, it's not the classic match for mojitos. Mojitos are clear and refreshing - making white rum the best option.
Absolutely. Both gold and white rum are perfect options for your piña colada. Gold rum is a versatile rum that can go with a number of different tropical drinks. The only we would not recommend is a mojito - as white rum is the best pair for this cocktail.
