For rum production, your question is very broad. By definition rum only has to made from a form of cane sugar. Like most, we have experimented with multiple stages of sugar have found our favorite. With rum, the final answer comes down to the profile the distiller wants. 

The more common term for cane honey is cane syrup. Cane syrup is the product just before refining. Molasses is a byproduct of the refining process.
