Review: 3 Howls Spiced Rum

3 Howls Spiced Rum - Copy3 Howls Spiced Rum was introduced in 2014.  The inspiration came when Local 360, a Seattle restaurant that sources all ingredients served at the restaurant within a 360 mile radius, commented that no one locally made a spiced rum.  The 3 Howls Distillery currently crafts 3 whiskeys, 3 vodkas, 2 gins, and 2 rums in the Soho neighborhood of Seattle Washington.  3 Howls Spiced Rum is made with sweet molasses from Barbados that is fermented with Scottish ale yeast in an open 600 gallon cypress wood tank.  The spirit is twice distilled in a 300 gallon hybrid pot/column still.  Fresh botanicals including vanilla bean, cinnamon, coffee, mace, allspice, and urfa biber are macerated with the rum for 7 days.  A third distillation follows.  Caramelized sugar and sweet Barbados molasses are then blended before the rum is hand bottled and labeled at 80 proof.
