Licorera Cihuatán Folklore (Perola) 16yr 53,6%

RX12481 Very good Column Still Rum Single Cask 218 bottles Under 250€

Folklore (Perola) from Licorera Cihuatán in El Salvador is a 16-year-aged limited release with just 218 bottles. Distilled from molasses using a column still, this rum boasts a robust ABV of 53.6%. Its aroma offers enticing notes of vanilla, pastries, caramelized undertones, citrus, and molasses. The flavor profile reveals a balanced mix of woody elements, grapes, baked apple, hints of cognac, and apple, making it a richly layered experience. Users appreciate its smooth mouthfeel, harmonious finish, and complex interplay of vanilla, wine/grape, wood, and a touch of chocolate. Though some find it slightly “burning” or too cognac-like, it is celebrated as one of the best offerings from Cihuatán, especially for its maturity and single cask quality.

“Beautiful single cask from cihuatan from El Salvador. Personally, a little too cognac-like, a little too woody and "vinous" and the alcohol could be better integrated. Overall, however, solid sfoff and probably the oldest single barrel from El Salvador to date! And in direct comparison to the predecessor definitely much better!”

“Ziemlich guter Rum, auch wenn die Nase einen nicht von dem Hocker haut, das Mundgefühl und den Abgang sind harmonisch und lecker. Intensiv Vanille und Wein/Traube mit einer guten Ladung Holz und etwas Schokolade.”
