Happy Halloween! ?
October brings a unique rum from Cuba – Black Tears. Described as an emotional blend of Cuban rum and seductive Cuban spices based on the Cuban lifestyle and passion for music and dance. Created using a Silver Dry rum from one of the best distilleries on the island, Black Tears is the first ever ‘dry’ Spiced Cuban Rum on the global market and it is our pleasure having discovered this bottling to bring this to the membership.
The bittersweet taste is what sets apart Black Tears from all other spiced rums, as well as its low sugar content, which is typical for Cuban rum. It is spiced with coffee and cacao (cocoa) which have played a large hand in Cuba’s history and aji dulce (sweet pepper) which is one of the most distinctive flavours in Cuban cuisine.
In October’s box;
Black Tears Spiced Rum – 70cl/40% alc./vol
2x 3Cents Aegean Tonic – 200ml
1x Hotel Chocolate Halloween Box
Black Tears is bright and clear, smouldering with cool golden intensity. It has a gentle and mysterious sweetness of cacao accompanying the punch of coffee on the finish, along with the lingering, peppery trace of spice. The result is a very elegant and well-balanced spiced rum.
3Cents produces artisanal mixers and beverages in London. Started by four Greek bartenders they have created a fine product line. Pairing Black Tears with 3Cents Aegean Tonic compliments the slight bitterness of the mixer with the sweetness from the rum on the palate. The cocoa and slight coffee notes are not lost making for a sophisticated drink. Pour 50ml of Black Tears over ice into a high ball glass and add the Aegean Tonic to taste whilst biting into the luxury chocolate.
