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.

Smartass Corner:
"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.

Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
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.’

A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
