Can I use white rum to make vanilla extract instead of vodka?
It will effect the taste, but if you go with a white rum it'll actually help sweeten it a little bit if that's what you're after.

Yep. This instructable says you can use vodka, brandy, gin, rum and several others.I would have thought that rum would be too strong tasting and add a molasses taste to the extract since rum is made of and tastes very much molasses. Or is that moleasses.
