In 2005, Miles and Marko envisioned creating an ultra-smooth, floral rum that could only be made in a classic Alambic Charentais copper pot still.
They began by sourcing Hawaiian & Jamaican sugar cane syrup to highlight its fresh cane fragrance.
The rum was gently doubled-distilled in Charbay's classic 100% copper Alambic Charentais Pot Still and rested for five (5) years in stainless steel, which allowed its fragrance molecule chains to form peacefully. Next, the rum was transferred to used French oak barrels for three (3) years. A second set of fragrance molecules formed under the influence of oxygen and wood.
A decade later, Master Distiller Marko Karakasevic opted to release the rum cask-strength (uncut) and unfiltered in order to share the rum's full profile. 137 proof (68.5% abv.)
Total production: 468 cases (only 120 cases to be released in 2016)

"Very limited production… A Gorgeous, bright henna/auburn color; perfectly sediment-free. Considering the cask strength, the initial nosing passes are more about the can syrup than the high abv… Entry is warming, only slightly prickly with spirit needles, and is remarkably robust, potent, toasty, chewy in texture, and spicy/zesty; midpalate vibrates with cane-y sweetness and oiliness. Finishes extremely long in the throat that’s tingling with the spirit, but in the nicest way of campfire warmth. Nice work!"
