It’s called the Honey Rum or Ron Miel. Originally, this rum came from the Canary Islands. It’s an island wherein people grow sugar canes for a living. Naturally, these people have a very sweet tooth. As the world has a different taste of rums, the Canary Islands were able to create their rum with a very special taste. Instead of going with the simple taste of rum, they have decided to create something very special. Their rum has become extra sweet because of the special honey from the sugar cane that was added to get this flavor.
The end result of Honey Rum is the combination of sweetness of honey and the strong taste of Rum. It’s not something to be thrilled about but people who have been staying in Europe especially Spain have found this run very engaging and addictive – in a very good way. That’s why people who have been in Europe for a long time always look for this type of rum for regular consumption.
