Cabot Tower 100 Proof Rum
Rocks Spirits // Guyana
Saint John’s Newfoundland is a rum town. So much that they named Cabot Tower 100 Proof Rum after the tower overlooking the harbor where boat loads of rum enter the city. Cabot Tower began construction in 1898 to observe the 400th anniversary of John Cabot discovering Newfoundland. Available in Canada only.
Dark RumAKA Black Rum. Usually aged (but not always) and has additional caramel-coloring added to provide the dark/black color. Some are distilled from blackstrap molasses. No specific type or size barrel required for aging nor is there a set time required for aging in most countries with a few exceptions.
"Demerara sugars, pencil shavings, burnt caramel and sweet jammy fruitiness roll on the nose. The high alcohol adds a punched up spicy heat, but the palate is rough and a lot drier than the nose suggests. The fruitiness puckers and the spice flips to a molasses bitterness. This rum works best for mixing where this bitterness could boost a drink and the high alcohol content pulls the rum forward."
