I had just a sample so this is just a first impression, but I don’t think I will be digging deeper into it.
It’s produced by the distillery Espritus in Monterrey, Mexico. Pixan is their only brand. Pixan is Mayan and means ‘Spirit which gives life’.
The rum is said to be produced from molasses in a double column still and then aged for up to 8 years in American ex-bourbon barrels.
From nose to finish, which is medium long, it’s possible to recognize vanilla, fruits and herbal notes.
Can not really say what it is due to, but this rum does not appeal to me.

- ve vůni je cítit dozrávání v sudech po víně, první dojem až ostrá, ale u dalších zmizí, možná nechat chvíli vydýchat, višně se hlásí dost výrazně
- chuť dost nasládlá, ostřejší, opět višně, závěr nahořklý, ale není špatný...

I was surprised how good it is, even though it's from Mexico. Not top tier, but good enough.

A very sweet nose with vanilla, fried banana and some more acidic fruits. Not really a sugar bomb but a little too much for the tannines and woody flavours so in the end it doesn't have enough backbone and will become boring. For a single glass it is a nice change of flavours though, just too sweet for my taste.

Bel équilibre, belle tenue en bouche. Entre douceur et caractère. Notes vanillées, légèrement épicé...

Lite syrlig och funky av frukt, på ett positivt sätt. Något frän, som förstärks av (bourbon?)fatkaraktären. Helt OK men kommer inte köpa igen.

I got a rum sampler and this was #6. The aroma is heavy on alcohol but a sip wasn't an overpowering burn. Decent in coke.

Thank You so much Rhum Attitude for providing a proper rum tasting during the 16th month of global lockdown. Tasting continued onwards with Pixan 8y. Nice and unique bottle and label design. Bright golden color. Very artificial flavors straight to your face. Ending is no different. Middle of the road spiced rum in my books.

I cannot find any positives. Smell of pure alcohol overpowers anything else. Taste is the same story.

Avis novice:
Au nez,.l'alcool prend le dessus, avec des notes grillees/fumées.
Au goût: attaque d'alcool avant de pouvoir sentir des notes plus légères. Il est court mais le goût de bois perdure longtemps
