Dented Brick is named in honor of the well driller that was responsible for the amazing artesian well that is located in the distillery and is the. source of water for our spirits. The well driller was killed in a blazing gunfight that left impressions in the bricks of his house. Some of those "dented bricks" are integrated into distillery building and also gave it its name.
Our craft rum is made from a unique combination of USVI rum brought to proof with the most important ingredient — artesian, limestone-filtered water. This water is sourced directly from the majestic mountains of Utah, home of the greatest snow on earth! The snowmelt then flows into the distillery's own Artesian Well creating the unique flavor profile crafted from this mineral rich water.
This handcrafted rum has compelling aromas of agave nectar, green apple, banana leaf, plantains, and candy corn with a velvety, fruity light-to-medium body and a peppery, medium green strawberry, watermelon rind, coconut husk, bay leaf, and vanilla fondant finish. A slightly funky craft rum that could play well in Tiki creations.
Aroma: Powdered sugar
Palate: Soft, dry, light body
Finish: Brisk coconut shell and macadamia
Clear color. Aroma of powdered sugar with a soft, dry light body and a tingling, brisk coconut shell and macadamia finish. A mild and neutral rum that’s an easy choice to convert vodka drinkers; easy drinking and highly mixable.
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.
