Typically based on gold rum, spiced rum is exactly that: a spirit made with sugarcane and added spices. The most common spices used during distillation include cinnamon, vanilla, caramel and pepper. The addition of these spices darkens this rum to a deeper gold, sometimes even brown. Enjoy this style in cocktails like the Goombay smash or rum and Coke.
