Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
In the glass, Cihuatan Sahumerio flaunts a complex amber hue with a golden radiance that speaks volumes about its twelve-year sojourn in American oak barrels.
Upon approaching the glass, one is greeted with a rich medley of aromatic notes that mimic the scents of Sahumerio incense—cascades of copal resin, sandalwood, and a touch of smoke are balanced by the sweetness of caramel and dried fruits.
The initial tasting notes offer a complex intertwining of spices—cinnamon and nutmeg—in harmony with flavors of dark chocolate and oak tannins. What sets this rum apart is its subtle incorporation of smoky flavors that dance through the more robust, traditional rum flavors, offering a ceremonious complexity reminiscent of ancestral Sahumerio rituals.
