Gold Jamaican Rum

Gold Jamaican Rums are gold rums produced in Jamaica.  Gold rums are generally aged in barrels for a period of time, and they get their gold color from aging in the barrels.  Beware, not all gold rums are aged.  Instead, some, get their color from additives.  I would not recommend these.  Gold rums generally have more flavor, and are more complex than light rums, but are not as dark or flavorful as dark rums.  They are middle of the road rums. 

Some common Gold Jamaican Rums are Appleton Estate, Smith & Cross, and Coruba.

Fun Fact: Many rums are aged in oak barrels that were first used to age whisky.
