Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Première gorgée vanillée suivie par le caramel, café, une légère touche de cuir. Tanins fumés dûs au baril de chêne intrigue la langue créant une finition agréable.
Enjoyed a bottle of Cihuatan 8y 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. Quite a strong burn at the end with the added vanilla is an interesting mixture.
First burn is a bit too strong and covers what comes after. Excellent balance with tones of dark chocolate.
Arome de ciocolată, dulceag cu aftertaste suficient pentru un rom "tânăr"
I found this rum to be a little too sweet for my taste. I mainly identify vainilla flavors but the sweetness over comes everythibg else. Having said that it is not bad at all, I can easilly drink it as a dessert rum after a good dinner, not my favorito though.
Overly sweet, almost impossible to use it in a cocktail, maybe to sip as dessert but not one that you would drink a whole night.
I enjoy the flavor and the after taste immensely
The cost to quality ratio is favorable too
I don’t know why it’s not rated higher overall
Was not expecting this one to be very good, especially at it's price point. It actually can stand as a a sipping rum with some light burn but interesting flavors of molasses and vanilla. Also wors as a flavorful mixing rum.
I had many trips to Cuba and always enjoyed Havana Club 7 yo. Up until now I did not try anything else except Cuban rum. Once I've brought from there Santiago de Cuba 11yo and have found it so smooth and delicius compared to HC. Since then I've discovered world is full of different rums ). Had tried 12 of them so far. And I will rate them comparing to HC as the base rated 6.
Smell very neutral, the taste is a direct vanilla but not over sweetened. It bites the nose and the throat. It’s. Simple rum - likable but not something that my tongue will remember for long after. From 24 rums selection with S.
lukter mye vanilje og litt sjokolade. God ettersmak med mye vaniljesmak og veldig søt. Mild ettersmak.
This rum has caramel and vanilla flavors, a very good choice for mixed drinks
I prefer this one over his older 12y brother. In taste you can feel o lot of vanilla, coffee and dark chocolate. Rum is very smooth with almost no burn.
Very well balanced, easy to drink on its own and or for a fancy quality Cocktail. The balance between quality and pricing is perfect.
A wonderful aroma with just a hint of burn when you first open the bottle. On the younger it has a bit of an almost candy taste with that touch of burn. It works but there is a slight aftertaste that was not expected.
This is an excellent mixer with the flavors blending best with a citrus though very good with coke or ginger ale. Think is would be great with coconut water.
The slight funk probably makes this a perfect candidate to try in some tiki concoctions or your favorite blended cocktails.
This will be a keeper in my bar...
At this price, I think you can find better products, but nonetheless Cihuatan 8 is a very drinkable rum. It comes with (I think) a bit of dossage, but nothing that will take away it's merit. As the first rum from El Salvador, all I can say is that these Salvadorean gentlemen are doing a fine job. Looking forward to trying the 12 years next week.
Definite vanilla bouquet. Can still taste the vanilla when drinking, though not as much. When mixed, a little aftertaste that I can’t place and it is just a bit unpleasant. Might be a 6.5. More sampling needed.
Good choice for the parties in SoCal and much better than the run we are used to.
Merci à Bruno qui m a offert la bouteille. Un rhum très doux au goût de vanille, caramel vers la fin, mile et orange.
Salon du Rhum Spa 2018 - très bon assez vanillé (achat)
Balanced sweet rum, with vanilla and caramel, easy drinking
But a bit burny also. Has some nice sweetness and balance as a classic rum. Caramel vanilla
Schönes helles Goldgelb im Glas:
In der Nase Düfte von süssen reifen tropischen Früchten, überreifen Mangos, Bananen, Karamell und viel, viel, viel Vanille. Auch eine herbe grasig grüne Seite ist auszumachen, Holz, Gras, Moos und Rinde bilden einen schönen Kontrast.
Im Gaumen angenehm mundfüllend und warm. Gebrannte Mandeln und andere Nüsse eröffnen die Parade der Aromen gefolgt von Vanille und Karamell und etwas gesalzene tropische Früchte.
Im Abgang schön lang, die Vanille bleibt noch viel länger.
Ein schon fast "kitschiger" Rum der Vanille-Süss-Rum Liebhaber verzückt. Jetzt habe ich Lust auf Kaffee und Kuchen. 7+
Beautiful bright golden yellow in the glass:
In the nose fragrances of sweet ripe tropical fruits, overripe mangos, bananas, caramel and much, much, much vanilla. Also a harsh grassy green side can be seen, wood, grass, moss and bark form a nice contrast.
In the palate pleasantly mouth filling and warm. Baked almonds and other nuts open the parade of aromas followed by vanilla and caramel and some salted tropical fruits.
In the finish nicely long, the vanilla remains much longer.
An almost "kitschy" rum of the vanilla-sweet-rum lovers enraptures. Now I feel like coffee and cake. 7+
El Salvador is not really known for their rum, so I was very interested in trying this rum. If this is the standard for El Salvador, then they have a long way to go...
Nose: Sweet vanilla, raw honey and some floral notes
Taste: Big hit of almost sickening sweet vanilla. Followed by notes of honey and eucalyptus
Overall: This rum has a very sweet taste of vanilla to the point, that it almost tastes fake. I will gladly try more from this brand, but this one is not for me.
