Rum Gold is a distilled alcoholic drink made from sugarcane byproducts, such as molasses, or directly from sugarcane juice, by a process of fermentation and distillation. The distillate, a clear liquid, is then usually aged in oak barrels. Jules Verne has a medium gold color and is made of organic sugar cane molasses. Aging on American oak adds a wide range of smokey, floral notes to the mix. The final result is a complex, dry, spicy Rum that leans to a Bourbon flavor. Impressively smooth.
