RUM is taken from the word Rumbullion, meaning tumult. RUM is also refered as Regular Use @Minimum level. Rum is a hard alcohol which is made from the molasses derived from sugar cane. The processes involved in making rum are fermentation, and also distillation, after which the rum is allowed to mature. There are different types of rums as well. and so if you want Regular Use at Minimum level.

TRIPLE EX (XXX) is the Brand name of Rum,distilled thrice for its purity and quality

Routine Used Medicine.
I have also read that in Colonial American times, beer was labeled with X, XX, or XXX. The X had the lowest alcohol content and XXX had the greatest. Just FYI, the lower alcohol content beer tended to go bad quicker so needed to be drunk sooner.

Rum is a distilled alcoholic beverage made from sugarcane by-products such as molasses and sugarcane juice by a process of fermentation and distillation. The distillate, a clear liquid, is then usually aged in oak and other barrels.

XXX means it is triple distilled.
