Recommendable to most
Yes it’s vanilla, but it’s an excellent blend with just the right burn and just the right mouthfeel. I enjoyed this one so much it was gone before anyone else could try it. I would drink a whole bottle again.
Belle couleur ambre/caramel, nez sucré et épicé aux notes de caramel, miel et vanille. Un rhum facile d'accès aux notes sucrées dont la force de l'alcool est cachée par sa douceur. Léger goût boisé en fin de bouche qui lui donne tout de même un bon caractère; à goûter!
Zoete rum met een frangipane afdronk.
De bourbon is goed terug te vinden in de smaak maar wordt dan te zoet in de afdronk.
Sweet rum with a frangipane aftertaste.
The bourbon is well reflected in the taste but then becomes too sweet in the aftertaste.
Fantastisk karamel duft i flasken, som ændrer karakter i glasset. Smagen er også sød og blød, omend med en lidt skarp eftersmag hvis ikke den får lov at stå.
Discovered this one by chance. Nice surprise though this rum from El Salvador (the only producer of rum in El Salvador?). Vanille, caramel, coffee in the mouth, great value for it's price.
From sourcing to distilling to maturing to bottling. Its the only rum that can really claim its 100% Salvadoreno.
I prefer the 8 over 12, the sweetness is the difference and what i enjoy about latin rums. Excellent for an old fashioned or just mon-fri sipping.
I discovered Cihuatán 8 last year while traveling through El Salvador. This is a truly dynamic rum for the price ($18USD in the airport).
Aroma: Sugar in the raw, vanilla, toasted marshmallow, slight oak/spice
Body: Medium / light. Somewhere between a cask strength and typical bourbon.
Flavor: Starts with sugar and vanilla and cuts back quickly with spice, heat, and woody. Slight resemblance of malted barley on middle of palate. Finishes with a long cinnamon spice and tannin on the palate. Some dried / candied fruits linger throughout as well.
Overall, this has been my favorite rum find of the last two years. (I just had my fill of Flor de Caña. I'd actually prefer drinking this to 7, 12, and 18.)
