The Rum Society No. 62
The Rum Society // Multiple Countries
The Rum Society is a recent entrant into the rum space, with a most unusual background. Produced by Pernod Ricard’s Absolut division in Sweden, the three numerically dubbed expressions (#40, #62, and #65) are pot-stilled, mostly unaged, offered in limited release, and targeted at rum geeks. The #62 is a blend of unaged pot still rums from Guyana, Jamaica, and Barbados.
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.
"Like its #40 sibling, this rum is brilliantly clear in the glass. The nose is buttery and spiced, with a touch of pear poking through. The initial palate is heavy and weighted toward the Guyanese component, although the Jamaican funk pushes through slightly. The mouthfeel is thick but not at all from added sweeteners. This selection is more rounded and less punchy than #40, with which it shares a common component. A good example of what a Navy-style rum would taste like, sans aging. Best suited for fans of full-throated, unapologetic pot-still rum."
