The Devil's Own Wicked Rum
The Devil's Own // Oregon, USA
Wicked Rum, made from American blackstrap molasses and cane sugar, is distilled as is the white--twice in a reflux still with an optional double column--and is hand-bottled and labeled and wax-sealed. The primary difference is the bottled proof: 156 in this case.
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.
"Wicked's extra proof doesn't lead to a hotter nose nor to a masking of grassiness, light caramel or both white and pink peppercorn notes. There's a sweetness on the palate compounded of caramel and honey, along with a touch of blackstrap. The finish lingers with the addition of some fruit. On the whole, this spirit wears its alcohol well, though as often a few drops of water bring out additional complexities--spice, in this instance."
