Ursa Major Fairbanks Sourdough Rum
Ursa Major Distilling // Alaska, USA
According to the Ursa Major Distilling, their Sourdough Rum is the first rum ever commercially produced in Alaska. Instead of using commercial yeast, this rum is fermented using a sourdough that was started in Alaska more than 60 years ago.
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 neutral, showing only perhaps a bit of yeasty tang, if anything. The weight on the palate and initial flavors reveal a very light spirit. If not for the hint of caramel and sugar and the tangy sourdough finish, it would be easy to mistake this for a premium vodka. The finish is longer and more complex than expected, but overall this is an ideal rum for mixing."
