The Rum Old Fashioned can be crafted in countless variations using different rums, sweeteners, and bitters. However, this particular rendition incorporates dark rum, demerara syrup, allspice dram, and a combination of orange and Angostura bitters. Dark rum imparts woody flavors resulting from barrel aging, appealing to whiskey enthusiasts, while the allspice dram adds an extra layer of spice and complexity. Although simple syrup is an acceptable option, the use of demerara syrup, derived from raw cane sugar, provides a more indulgent taste and texture. Lastly, the dual presence of orange and Angostura bitters brings a well-defined structure and balance through vibrant citrus notes and bold aromatics.
