There are 4 main types of rum that are produced: light-bodied, medium-bodied, dark, and spiced. Light-bodied rums, also referred to as white or silver rums, are clear and have little flavor. This type of rum is aged for 1 year or less. Medium-bodied rums aged for 2 to 3 years, also referred to as golden or amber rums, are deeper in color and have a richer full-bodied flavor. The deeper and more mellow taste is derived from longer aging or through the addition of caramel to the flavoring process. Dark rums age for 5 to 7 years and provide a rich flavor with a full-bodied aroma. Demerara rum, which is a dark rum, is the darkest and richest of all rums and has a slightly sweet flavor, making it a popular liquor for many cocktails. Añejo rum, translated to "aged" rum, is often considered a dark rum, aged from 5 to 10 years, providing a mellow flavor and a distinctively rich aroma. Spiced rums are generally aged for 1 year or less and are processed with a variety of flavorings and tropical ingredients. This type of rum is also known as aromatic rum.
