All rum is the distilled liquid which is produced from crushed sugar cane.
This is why rum—all rum—has some characteristics that may seem like “sweetness” (without necessarily being sweet). Where ever rum is being produced, it starts with sugarcane—pressed to remove excess water and either fermented immediately (to make Rhum Agricole) or boiled to create a molasses byproduct, from which most types of rum are made.
The distillate which is a clear liquid is then usually aged in oak barrels.
