A wonderful, beautifully-aged, top-shelf Rum blended from Central American Spirits.
Karthik Sudhir was an athlete in India, excelling at track and field. Then he was a software developer (we think we know where, but let’s keep that a secret). Now, he has come to his senses and devoted himself to the higher calling of developing premium Spirits brands to make the world a better place — thus Phenomenal Spirits was launched in June of 2017. Currently, the Ron Izalco brand is being well-received with a Rye Whiskey brand slated for release later in 2020.
Ron Izalco 10 Year Old is the first — and so far only — release from both Izalco Rum and Phenomenal Spirits. But what matters is that this fine Rum is a blend of premium Spirits from Central America, built upon a base of sugarcane-based El Salvadoran Rum. The blend has aged for a full decade in ex-Bourbon casks and is bottled at a pleasant 43% ABV. It strikes a great balance on the delightful palate — it’s not overly sweet — with rich tones of pipe tobacco, exotic fruits, and spice. In its first year of release, this fine cane juice has taken multiple Gold and Double Gold Medals.
"Izalco" is a stratovolcano in El Salvador on the flanks of the Santa Ana Volcano. It erupted almost continuously from 1770 through 1958, building up to a height of 6400 feet. It is considered a national symbol of the country and even appeared on the currency until 2001.

The palate is very smooth with a strong wood influence and notes of moist tobacco leaves, sultanas, citrus zest, and English toffee.
