Unlike most commercially manufactured rums, Jan's Silver Rum is an 80 Proof rum made by blending green sugarcane and molasses, both from Lula-Westfield in Plaincourtville, Louisianna, and then adding our Artesian well water.
The same water that falls on Utah ski resorts as "The Greatest Snow on Earth" flows into the distillery's Artesian Well and into Dented Brick Distillery Spirits. Easily trace the Artesian well water piping throughout the distillery from the well head to the tanks, then taste the unique flavor profiles crafted from this pure mineral rich water source.
Firmly rooted in the tradition of the finest rums, we mash, ferment, and distill on site using only the highest quality ingredients - organic sugar cane, rich molasses, aromatic yeast, and pure Artesian water.
Make sure you have a clean palate (your mouth). Common palate cleansers are bread or unsalted crackers.
The first thing to look for when tasting a new rum is what it looks like. Take note of its color, is it clear or cloudy, light, golden or dark – this can help prepare your brain for what is about to come next.
Commonly referred to as “nosing” this is where you sniff the rum to soak in those delicious aromas. Short quick sniffs are best to capture different aromas. You have about 7 seconds before your nose gives up and stops noticing things so try and identify things quickly.
The first sip is always a bit of a shock to the tongue, so take a small sip to get the light burn out of the way so you can then focus on the flavors.
Take a second, slower sip and let the rum float around your mouth and the vapors float into your nose to identify more aromas. Here you want to look for sweetness, bitterness and spiciness & acidity. Make a note of what you observe.
Next, take another sip and pay attention to the consistency or the rum, is it smooth, light, thick? Does the flavor intensify or stay the same? Compare this to what you noticed in The View above.
Swallow the rum and pay attention to the after taste. How quickly does it fade away? Do more flavors present themselves, do other flavors disappear.
