Caraluzzi's Wine & Spirits is your destination for spirits. Check out our wide selection of rums. We have great mixers, sipping rums, dark rums and sweet, almost dessert-like varieties. 

Types of Rum

Rums are made from sugar cane or its derivatives. Here's some varieties of the liquor:

White or Clear 

White rum is clear and usually has a milder flavor and lighter body than gold or dark rums. These lighter rums are most often used in cocktails. They are often aged one or more years.

Gold or Pale Rum

As rum mellows in barrels over time, it takes on amber or golden hues that usually present a more flavorful profile than the white or clear rums. Gold rums are used to make cocktails in which a stronger flavor is desired. Gold rums are often aged several years or more. They are also enjoyed on the rocks or neat.

Dark Rum

Dark rums are often aged in charred oak casks for extended periods. They have a more robust flavor profile than the white or gold varieties and are great for sipping.

Flavored Rum

Flavoring rum by adding spices and aromatics during distillation became popular in the latter part of the 20th century. Coconut rum and spiced rum are the most popular and have been around the longest.


Mount Gay Eclipse

Distinctive and oaky

Eclipse is the embodiment of the Mount Gay style, body, and aroma. It's produced from molasses that is double distilled and aged up to 2 years in white Kentucky oak ex bourbon barrels. Eclipse goes great in cocktails.


El Dorado 12 Year

Time-honored tradition

El Dorado rums are produced to the highest standards and conform to the international regulations on age statements. Therefore the age on the bottle refers to the age of the youngest rum in the blend, even though the oldest may be many years older. The distinctive flavor is characterized by a deep mellowness. El Dorado 12 Year rum has been laid down in oak barrels for at least 12 years producing a rich and diverse spirit.


Diplomatico green label



Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva is a blend of exclusive rum reserves aged for up to twelve years, carefully selected by their Master Blenders. Opening up with aromas of orange peel, toffee and licorice, it's smooth on the palate, and follows on with notes of toffee fudge that offers a seductive, long-lasting finish.



Authentically Caribbean

An authentic Caribbean legend, the flagship Original Bumbu is blended from fine Barbados rum and hand-selected spices that evoke the rich and colorful history of the West Indies. Bumbu reveals its heritage and craftsmanship with every sip.


Dos Maderas

Triple Aged

Dos Maderas PX 5+5 is a triple-aged blend of rums from Barbados and Guyana. The rum is first aged for five years in the Caribbean, followed by three years in Sherry casks at the Williams & Humbert facilities in Spanish Jerez. It then undergoes a third stage of ageing in butts which have previously aged “Don Guido” sherry (Pedro Ximénez) for 20 years. It is very sweet with rich, plump raisins dominating the palate.


Ron Zacapa 23

Complex and full-bodied

The balance of delicate and unique flavors of Zacapa No. 23 is derived from a blend of aged rums between 6 and 23 years old, originating from the “Sistema Solera” aging process. Zacapa No. 23 is aged in selected barrels that previously aged robust American whiskey, delicate sherries and fine Pedro Ximénez wines, creating a smooth & balanced rum. Zacapa No. 23 is complex, generous and full-bodied.
