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.
