Alambique Serrano Blend #2 Single Origin Oaxacan Rum
Alambique Serrano is a unique brand of small batch and single barrel rums produced in Oaxaca's cloud forest from fresh local sugar cane juice. Created by the Krassel family - third generation distillers - the rums are all single origin, reflecting the unique terroir of the steep hillsides of Santa Maria Tlalixtac. Every rum the Krassels produce is hand harvested, distilled in handmade stills, and then aged in both their dry and humid bodegas. They practice traditional organic agriculture, leading to healthy and robust cane plants while preserving the integrity of their farmland.
Blend #2 combines two different batches of rum distilled by Rommel Krassel in his 300-liter copper alembic still: A single cask rested in highly toasted new French oak is blended with a hint of unaged pot still rum by the same maker. The two batches combine to create an aromatically fascinating blend that recalls green apple, Bananas Foster and hogo-funk. Notes of cinnamon, pan dulce, leather, and piloncillo soften a flash of wild and green herbal notes with a layered complexity on the palate. The finish brings everything together, for an extended slightly fruity and nuanced experience.
