Jon Canoe 15 Year Old Deluxe Quality Rum circa 1960s / Whiskyteca Giaccone

Jon Canoe rum is a light gold overproof rum which has been aged for 15 years and is named after an 18th century Gold Coast chieftain. "John Connu" defended a Prussian fort from Dutch traders in 1720 and used their skulls for a variety of purposes, one of which was a silver mounted skull cup to drink rum out of.

This was imported for the Italian market exclusively by Whiskyteca Giaccone in Salo.

Giaccone was something of a trailblazer, and was importing specially bottled official single malts for his bar from the late 1960s. He opened the famous venue in 1958, and it has been called a few different things over the years, including Garten, Edward & Edward, and La Taverna del Comandante.

Edoardo set the stage for later legendary bottlers such as Silvano Samaroli, Nadi Fiori and Ernesto Mainardi. Moon Import founder, Pepi Mongiardino said, "he was the first person I visited" when he became the distributor for Bruichladdich in 1981. Giaccone did not have any of his own labels or series, but was the first person in Italy to have official bottlings produced exclusively for him. Through his bar, Italy was treated to exclusive releases from Clynelish, Bowmore, Dalmore, Highland Park and even Jack Daniel's.
