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

Isn't it really a blend of aged rums with just the colour filtered out?

From what I read they combine their own Brazilian rum with aged Venezuelan rum and then filter out the coloring to get what we see in the bottle, so you'd be right. Isn't this the case with most good white rums though, that they are aged and then filtered of most or all of their color?

Nope, the Oronoco is not available in Sweden. Looking forward to Tiares' answer...

To my knowledge the bulk of the blend in Oronoco isn't aged, the aged rum component is that to add the vanilla flavor to the bottled product.

I really like this rum. At our local Von's, it is being phased out at $18.00 for the 750ml bottles. I bought the last 6 for that price. I make a version of the Hemingway daiquiri with Oronoco. Instead of the Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, I use Amaretto. Also, it is the Hemingway version incorporating the grapefruit juice. I got the recipe from their website a few years ago, I seem to remember.

Just picked up a bottle recently and I have to say that this product makes me think twice about white rum. Fantastic. I think the Oronoco sets itself apart by far. I did notice that my bottle has a production date of 2007. Is this the majority of product out there or have others had a more recent production run? I am curious if the profile has changed at all over the last 2 years.

So far as I know, this rum has been very consistent. I had not had any in awhile, and revisited it yesterday. Along with the vanilla note that the rum is well known for, the taste of the wood, was evident and well balanced. even though this rum is light in color, it drinks like an aged darker rum.

Oronoco is great! I pre-gamed before going out with a few friends and it mixed well with some Red Bull. Plus, everyone liked the bottle.

I've long been a big fan of Oronoco. Those that share the opinion will love the new Diplomatico Rum Blanco, which is like Exclusiva with the color taken out.
