Our tasting notes

We blend our rum with natural vanilla, chocolate, coffee and pepper to create a rich, smooth and spiced flavor. Perfect in a mix or on the rocks – but always best shared.

Amber gold.

Very soft and floral, a generous creamy ­vanilla note and hints of arrack, fudge, coffee and peppermint.

Soft and sweet like the nose, a medium body with dark chocolate, toffee, finishing with a hint of coffee and dried dark fruits.

Legend has it that of all of my father’s inventions, the first Cuban Spiced was his proudest. He shared the Cuban passion for rum and music by singing the heartbreaking love song ‘Lagrimas Negras’ with the seasonal caribbean workers at his sugar plantation. So they shared with him a tradition of their own – mixing coffee and spices with rum. The smell of sugar was the scent of Cuba for generations, the rum produced was the taste.

Getting its energy from the finest sugarcane, Black Tears captures the spirit of old and new Cuba. It’s crafted and pressed by traditional methods at the Paraiso Destileria in Sancti Spiritus, recreating the original and unique flavour of an old family treasure. Enjoy it in a mix or neat.
