Many cocktail recipes call for full-flavored dark rum. They are usually dark brown or reddish-brown in color. These rich flavorful rums are frequently matured in barrels longer than gold rums. They may contain extra dark coloring. Navy rums are often a blend of rich dark rums, traditionally from English colonies such as Guyana, Trinidad, Jamaica, Bermuda and Barbados.
