This is a generous rum in all its dimensions. Even before uncorking the bottle, the rum’s mahogany color with flashes of coppery red captures our attention and invites us to listen to its story. After serving it in a tasting glass, the rum’s aromas begin to whisper the notes of the bourbon barrels where it patiently aged for 12 years. The whisper then turns into a sigh, as its characteristic notes of fresh guarapo and brown sugar begin to surface.
Cihuatan Sahumerio is a limited edition rum created as a celebration of love. According to Mayan lore, fire was the symbol of love and the eagle goddess Chantico was its guardian. Thus, every loving home would keep a ‘Sahumerio’, a sacred vessel for fire. These Sahumerios would burn day and night in honor of love.
Cihuatan Xaman is an extra aged rum, specially matured in Mayan Ceiba, to honor Xaman, the god of the North Star and protector of the Cihuatan Valley. Gabriela Ayala, Master Blender of Cihuatan, chose the wood of the Mayan Ceiba for its attractive profile and rich character.
