      Hari,

      My rum does the same thing, actually anything I age with fruit does it. Cold filtering does the trick, the colder the better.

      Hari,
      Search "Fatty Acids" or "Protein" in these groups. I am pretty sure that is what you have going on there. If memory serves the best way to get rid of them is to put it in the freezer to harden them up and then strain through a coffee filter.
