Rum is always made from sugar cane. But it’s sometimes called Rhum, sometimes Ron, or Rum. What is the difference ?
- French-style RHUMS (Martinique, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Marie-Galante, Reunion …) are intense and complex, with a floral flavour. Most of them are made from pure sugar cane juice.
- The English-style RUMs (Trinidad, Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica etc.) are more robust and spicy. They are often created industrially from molasses (part of the cane juice that cannot be crystallized).
- Finally, Spanish-style RONs (Panama, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Venezuela) are rather mild and round. They are also based on molasses.
