This rum has been around since 1960 and to this day remains in the same distinctive packaging. The rum is made from molasses and has gone through a 4 column still. Green Island Superior Light Rum is a blend of 3 and 5 year oak aged rums. During the ageing process the rum takes on a golden colour from the oak casks. The aged rum then undergoes a charcoal filtration where the golden colour is removed without affecting its taste profile. The rum is extremely smooth and has a lot of complexity on the nose and palate. Hints of grass, aniseed, herbs, coconut, chocolate, fennel and cane are just some of the aromatics coupled with a creaminess and subtlety that makes it unusual and yet a very impressive rum.
