Default accounting for sugars in rum at bottling

Just wondering if anyone has added spiced rum at bottling and if so how did you account for the sugars in the rum, dont need any bottle bombs. Thanks

I typically will send it through the GCMS to get handle on the sugar content.

I don't believe there is any fermentable sugar in Rum or any spirits.

i'm with you on that one. i don't think the OP needs to worry about sugar in the rum.

Drinking: a belgian pale ale, a belgian imperial stout, an Epic 09.09.09 clone, a brett'ed saison
Carbing: a hop-bursted APA, a citra farmhouse
Fermenting: an abbey ale (to be soured)
Aging: an oud bruin, a BDSA/Dubbel thingy, a soured fruit saison, my "wild oats" brett/sour, a saison with a brett mix added at bottling.
Up next: TBD, probably not brewing again until july.

Why didn't I think of that- I'll just go grab mine out of the garage.
