Caliche // Puerto Rico
Mutually developed by model/Miami club promoter Rande Gerber and sixth generation distiller Roberto Serralles, Caliche is a super-premium white rum from Puerto Rico. The charcoal filtration process removes the color from what is actually a blend of rums from 3-5 years old, along with some solera-aged rum. The result is a smooth white rum with enough bite to stand up in classic cocktails.
Silver RumAKA Blanco, Light, White. Rum that is usually aged (but not always) and carbon-filtered to remove any color. No specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for aging for most countries with a few exceptions.
"The nose is fairly astringent, but it calms down after sitting for a minute or two. The nose includes citrus and vanilla followed by caramel and a hint of oak. As the rum washes over the tongue, the heat is attenuated by some sweetness. There is a moderate viscosity that is slick and a tad oily. There is a healthy dose of vanilla on the front end, but it is quickly backed up by a kick of spice. The dry finish is lengthy for a white rum, dominated caramel, lemon and orange notes."
