Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Subtle notes of wood, a hint of vanilla and cacao, soft undertones of coffee and a dash of brilliance that resembles the sweetness of fresh sugarcane juice.
Enjoyed a bottle of Cihuatan 12y with my buddies while in Germany. Plain standard bottle wrapped in a flimsy cardboard box. Golden color. Since its all sugarcane method plus added vanilla flavors, its really not my cup of tea. In general terms its not bad, but why waste time when you have SO MANY better rums out there...
Diferențe clare față de mai tânărul "frate". Gust mai bogat și aftertaste remarcabil
For me to decide between a 7 and a 7.5 on my scale. .Straight up sweet with minimal after-burn. A waste to mix it.
It Starts really sweet and after the sweetness i had strange plastic notes.
Has a really different taste but not my favourite
Anders als meine gewohnten Rums aus Barbados, aber richtig lecker und interessant
This rum with scent of banana was good, not to harsh alcohol, despite it was in aroma.
Næsten ingen duft. Måskemlidt vanilje. Smagen er tør, men også lidt sødme. Også smag af nødder, vanilje og karamel. Jeg var fan af 8 års udgaven, så forventede at denne mindst var lige så god, men det synes jeg desværre ikke, den er. Jeg overvejede et syv-tal, men tror mest det var skuffelsen, der gjorde det, for det er egentlig ikke en dårlig rom. (23. December 2019 i 1423)
Nothing interesting, sweet nose, a bit of herbs and ethanol in taste.
Po ovonani som bol mierne sklamaný ,vôňa sa nerozvinula ani po pár minútach. Chuť má nakoniec prijemne prekvapila..náznak jabĺk,citrusov a jemne drevitym charakter v závere.
Pokud bych měl na tomto rumu něco hanět, řeknu že moc dobře/zajímavě nevoní. Jsou rumy krásně vonící a pak téměř nepitelné, tento rum má slabou a nezajímavou vůni ale výbornou chuť. Je trochu těžší, lehce olejová a nasládlá. Cítit je dřevo a oříšky.
Eher süss, besonders im Vordergrund.
Sonst noch etwas Holz, bitter und ein klein wenig schärfe.
I liked this rum but wish the makers would have had enough confidence to allow to to stand on its own instead of the added sugar. That said, a nice nose of vanilla and banana. The first taste is smooth but also very sweet with flavors of banana, caramel and nuts. I enjoyed it but would prefer it with not the additives so I'm taking points off for that.
Honigfarbenes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase eher auf der dunklen Seite, satter, schwarzer feinkrümeliger Hummus, dunkles Karamell, angekohlte Fässer, dunkelrote Beeren, tropfnasses dunkelgrünes Moos.
Im Gaumen sehr speziell, etwas süss-prickelnd wie ein Schaumwein. Karamell, Vanille, etwas Holz, aber etwas lieblos.
Im Abgang süss, Karamell und Vanille, leider etwas flach.
Ein lieblicher Solera, aber auch nicht mehr, sehr austauschbar. Für Einsteiger und Solera Lovers.
Honey-coloured amber in the glass.
In the nose rather on the dark side, rich, black fine crumbly hummus, dark caramel, charred barrels, dark red berries, dripping wet dark green moss.
Very special on the palate, somewhat sweet and tingly like a sparkling wine. Caramel, vanilla, some wood, but a little loveless.
Sweet in the finish, caramel and vanilla, unfortunately a bit flat.
A lovely Solera, but also no more, very interchangeable. For beginners and Solera lovers.
My new favorite. Bought it blind only because I read some articles about it. Not disappointed at all. A fantastic smell of vanilla and chocolate. Very smooth and mild, sweet enough but not too sweet. Don't know what could be better.
Dont take me wrong, this is not bad rum. But I feel something strange in its taste like at whiskey. Other flavours in mouth are banana, nuts and honey. I prefer his younger brother.
After couple of sips I have to admit that is better and better so I upgrade my rating to 8.
... but you don't taste it that much, I don't know how much was added - i guess not too much. For me it's a very harmonic and smooth rum.
This rum has great balance between it's flavors, heat, and sweetness which is not overly strong. Sipping it on the rocks tones the heat down while the flavors get stretched out the longer you let it chill. What I tasted I'd say are creme banana and light chocolate on the back of oaky barrel aging which is not overpowering.
Can not find this rum in my country. I bought this by net shop.
Nutty and banana flavor with cacao and vanilla, also butter caramel, not too sweet.
After drinking, the glasa has a custard flavor.
It has a hint of Vanilla and a smooth taste, this is one of the best rums I have ever had and I am referring to the 12 year old batch.
Un rhum avec une longue finale et une belle complexité. Il est très doux et goûte le caramel le chêne l orange et les épices. Si on le compare au 8 ans, il est comparable au goût mais plus complexe.
Well round balance of quality, taste and not so easy to find. Real Craft product
I found both the 8-years old & the 12-years old at the international airport of San Salvador & following my instict I preferred to bring the latter back home (the older one, by the way, is considered -& I was also told by the seller there- to be drier & more whiskey-like than its sweeter, more vanilla-like, younger brother). Well, I can say that I am more than proud of my choice, since this rum is not a very dry one, but, on the contrary, one of the best & more complicated ones I have ever tasted! The inicial warm impression of wood & spices is followed by a nuance of vanilla & a subtle sweetness, that give this beautiful rum a classy & well-balanced feel.Too bad that it is a very rare brand to come across.Vive El Salvador!
