pndTom Posted August 19, 2021 Share Posted August 19, 2021 I'm aging rum in 15 gallon used bourbon barrels. The spirit flavor profile is very nice at this point but the color of the rum is very light gold. Almost yellow. When I pull this from the barrel and cut it to bottle proof it's going to have even less color. I could add a caramel coloring to achieve a more "aged" look but would prefer to avoid that. Wondering if other's have run into this and if there's a solution for it other then caramel coloring. More time in the barrel? Different barrel? It just doesn't have a very nice appearance as is.
