Aged: 12 years
The ancient Maya made a red pigment using the mineral Cinabrio (cinnabar). This was an important colour as red was the symbol of Kinich Ahau, the Mayan god of the sun. This rum's "Cinabrio" name is inspired by that colour red.
Made in San Salvador in El Salvador from fermented sugar syrup and molasses, Cihuatán Cinabrio is column distilled and then aged 12 years in American oak ex-bourbon barrels.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 09/04/2021
Clear, pale golden amber.
Relatively subdued with vanilla fudge, coffee, toasty oak, pistachio, zesty orange and cinnamon with new leather and fresh mint leaf.
Medium-bodied. Explodes with acacia honeyed grassy richness beautifully balanced by elegant oak, with pistachio, freshening zesty orange, and a dusting of cinnamon and white pepper spice.
Long finish with acacia honey, dry elegant oak and peppery vanilla.
Rich and yet dry. Refined and restrained rather than brash. This 12 year old rum retains youthful zesty freshness while boasting a mellowness that only comes with age.
