Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Picture: My emptied sample.
- 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...
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.
The nose has subtle hints of vanilla, some spice, molasses, and something herbal. Fairly smooth on the tongue with minimal burn, notes of sweetness, oak, vanilla. The finish is mild and has a bit of a rough finish. Overall, decent and has some potential.
Had an off flavor like mildew or must. The rest of the flavors were not particularly good. Not a rum to drink neat.
