If you spend an inordinate amount of time in coffeehouses, sipping on black sludge and lighting up Bidi cigarettes in order to create a “writer” aura about yourself, then you are probably going to love STOLEN Coffee and Cigarette Spiced Rum (and for the record, I’m one of those people).
The rum was inspired by Jim Jarmusch’s film Coffee and Cigarettes and blended to specifically taste like you spent several hours licking an ashtray while downing booze-laced coffee straight from the pot (well actually, the rum is- according to STOLEN’s website- matured in ex-bourbon oak barrels for a minimum of two years, before it is carefully blended by hand. Then, we blend this rum with natural spices and oils – a method used in our handcrafted ‘tincture’ based approach. The best tinctures of each ingredient are sourced from around the world; in this rum, we use Fenugreek from Morocco, Vanilla Bean from Madagascar and Arabica Coffee Beans from Colombia. The result is smoky toffee aromas on the nose, with a coffee, smoke and butterscotch finish in the mouth).
All of which means that you are basically drinking the remnants of a party that has been over for a few hours (think cigarette butts floating in a glass).
So yeah, Coffee and Cigarette Spice Rum…a drink made for those who don’t mind smelling like a distillery that caught fire and was put out by fire truck filled with Dunkin Donut coffee.
