The reserve begins life in the same way as the New England White – as Grade A molasses from Guatemala’s volcanic soils. The second distillation is where things begin to change – the first distillation is all done on a Vendome pot still, but the second is carried out on a Carl still. This German style still allows for pure pot distillation or a pot/column hybrid that offers tremendous control. More plates in the column and you’ve got a cleaner brighter spirit. Fewer plates (or no plates) and you’ve got a second heavy pot distillation. The fine-tuning here allows for many types of final spirit to be produced and add incredible complexity to this affordable aged rum. It enters the cask at 100 proof (quite low) which allows for a full extraction of the flavors of the barrel – both the water-soluble and alcohol-soluble compounds are brought out, again adding to the wide range of flavors in the final spirit.
