what category of rum is Bacardi Select?!

Is it gold or dark?! It keeps mentioning it's "aged" but I'd hardly call four years aged, anyway.

    Most rums that aren't white are listed as dark. In that catagory they can vary from amber to black. Select list rums UP to four years old in the blend and was previously known as Bacardi Black.

      Unfortunately, not all gold or even dark rum is aged. Some is just white rum with coloring added. Unless there's an age statement on the bottle, it is probably not aged.

        And some white rums are aged and filtered to remove the color. Appleton and Flor de Cana Extra Dry. I think both are aged 4 years and filtered.
