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.
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.
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.
This attractive rum pours medium amber in colour; aromas of toffee, vanilla, oak and chocolate. Vanilla and toffee on the palate make way for a medium-bodied and smooth, viscous finish. It was a favourite while rum tasting at work today.
Sweet and vanilla like smell. With a explicit initial taste of vanilla and with hits of fruits. Might come of as a bit synthetic in its taste due to its overt sweetness. But nevertheless a nice rum. Defenetli going to have a look at some of its loger aged variants :-)
Both these rums are such a good deal. Very tasty and so cheap. Could definitely sell for lot more. Bought them in El Salvador as a package.
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.
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.
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.
