  The Malibu Tour was great fun
by rachel_sun

There are 1000 rum shops in Barbados.Rum is made by distilling the juice extracted from molasses,the thick liquid residue left after most of the sugar has been taken out of the sugarcane juice.Dark rums are made in traditional pot stills.The longer they are aged,the better.5 year old rum is good,10 year old rum is wonderful.The rum gets its dark colour from the wood.Lighter rums are made in modern stills for less time.
