It is diluted with water before fermentation. On the other hand, molasses is the residue from the production of cane sugar, a dark liquid, concentrated in sugars and aromas. The honey and molasses are fermented before going through the distillations, and the rum is aged for up to eight years in American oak barrels, which are ex-bourbon and whiskey barrels. Blending of the barrels for a perfectly balanced result. Bottle sold with its canister.
