Distillates from fermented mashes of high test and blackstrap molasses were analyzed for congeners content. A product with more esters and less fusel oil, that appears convenient for high quality rum manufacturing, was obtained from the fermentation of high test molasses. These results suggest that high test molasses could be an alternative for the rum industry which may determine the viability of the local cane sugar industry.
