- Artificial aging techniques were applied to samples of rum. These samples were then compared, by artificial neural nets, with traditionally aged rums. Analysis was based on the phenolic and furanic composition of each sample. There were found to be few statistical differences between samples, thus confirming the possibility of applying artificial aging techniques to obtain rum with phenolic and furanic characteristics that are similar to those of rum obtained by traditional methods.
