Smooth. It’s one of the most commonly and loosely used words in the spirit lexicon. We've all tasted a rum and described it as “smooth” at some point, but what precisely do we mean? Is there no alcohol burn? Is it mellow? Gentle? Mild? Light?
The full flavour profile of Blanco Batch 005 got us wondering. We tend to think of Blanco as lively and bold, a spirit with sass. But what makes it so? Where does the flavour come from in this clear spirit? Why does it taste like rum and not vodka?
As we celebrate Batch 004 hitting shelves from Byron Bay to Brisbane, we'd like to take this opportunity to thank the bars and bottle shops that have been the wind beneath our wings these last six months. Batch 004 is dedicated to them.
