Second Sight Unbarreled Rum
Second Sight // Kentucky, USA
Second sight is produced in northern Kentucky by two veterans of the Las Vegas show scene. They employ a 50-gallon copper still (surmounted by a "turban" to suggest seeing into the future), attached to a six-plate column. Molasses is the base of choice.
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 light and slightly grassy, a quality that carries over to the palate. Some toasty, sugary sweetness follows, coupled to a light, herbal essence. The spirit is clean but lacking in distinctive character, although a few drops of water do awaken some further sweetness and complexity."
