List of rum measured

This is a list of all the rum's that has been measured so far.

The method used: The Hydrometer method

The reason for doing these measurements: No additives

 

IMPORTANT:

The Hydrometer method measures a change in density and I assume that the density change is caused by the addition of sugar.

The Hydrometer method does not measure actual sugar, so it is possible that something other then sugar has been added to the rum after distillation that causes the change in density.

If the producer labels their products as rum, they are only allowed to add sugar and caramel color (EU law).

The calculation also has to rely on the fact that the %abv listed on the label is correct. If the producers has made a proofing error so the true %abv of the rum is different then listed on the label, the calculation's below will not be accurate.

According to EU law, the %abv listed on the label has to within +/- 0.3% accurracy.

 

Rums that's being listed with 0-5 g/L below should be considered to have no sugar added. Long aging periods (or new innovative aging by Lost Spirits Distillery) has an impact on the density. I have seen measurements that shows 3-4g/L in rums that have no sugar added. Because of that, I have made the decision to consider all rums in the 0-5 g/L range as unsweetend with sugar.

(NOTE: New Sample section at the bottom of the page).

IMPORTANT: The measurements listed BELOW are based on sample bottles send to me. Since I don't own the rum tested ( I don't have the bottle ), I have no way of knowing if the sample has been altered before it was send to me. I have however made the decision to publish the results anyway. You must however be aware that these Sugar g/L calculations (below), might not be correct.
