Of Mayan guardian spirits and 95-proof Salvadorean Rum.

Cihuátan was an ancient Mayan city that was granted riches and fertility by a goddess who took the form of a nearby mountain to watch over the sugar cane fields. The name itself is a reference to this legend and translates to "the land beside the sleeping woman". That's quite a backstory! Here's another shocker: Ron de El Salvador Cihuátan is the first Rum distillery in El Salvador. Dedicated to sustainability, Master Blender Gabriela Ayala crafts delicious Spirits, each expression paying tribute to a different Mayan god.

Cihuátan Nahual is where their lineup gets serious. It's a limited-edition blend of 3 Rums aged 11 to 14 years that are hand-picked from their private reserves. Aged in ex-Bourbon as well as new American oak barrels, it's one for the hardcore aficionados and collectors, with every bottle numbered by hand. In Mayan legend, the Nahual isn't gods per se, but rather shape-shifting guardian spirits that watch over each person. We're sure these come in handy, as the award-winning expression bumps the proof up to 95 and fits squarely in the deceptively-smooth sipper category.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Cihuatán Nahual Limited Edition Rum and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color

Nose / Aroma / Smell
It's a pleasantly sweet aroma with caramel, vanilla, meringue, and hints of coconut.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
There's dark fruit, vanilla, and cocoa on the palate. A nuttiness is present in the form of cashews and the wood makes itself known. A touch of spice is in there as well.

Finishes long with wood notes and a lingering nuttiness.
