White Rums

Whether you call them, clear, silver, white or simple 'see through' how do you drink them?

Meaning the rectangular shape affords more surface area to disperse the color rather than the typical cylindrical bottle?

I have not sampled 10 Cane. Does it appear darker in a tasting glass when compared to rums that appear lighter in the bottle?

I believe that angelsword was referring to the thinness of the bottle (lack of depth), which would show a lighter shade when looking straight through (vis a vis a typical round bottomed 750mm).

Reading your post angelsword prompts me to ask the question, I am sure on most our minds, "Are you any closer to releasing your rum?".

White, Platinum, Silver, and Light are all popular terms taht can be used. In my perusals of federal regulations I haven't seen any standards on what to call it by color.

We have had several contracts fall apart, but are now months into another approach.

But the technological improvements and new patents continue anyways. For the last 2 years I worked mostly on dark rums. Now I am over in the light sector trying to get some new entries ready for the MoR competition in May.

10 Cane is worth having on your shelf. But it is darker in the glass than some gold rums.

Nothing like a little after nightshift geek humour.
