This rum first greets your eyes with its iridescent display of dark amber tones adorned with fiery ruby hues. As you examine it closer, the cask strength and high congener character entice your nose with an array of intensely fruity aromas, evoking memories of finely aged bourbon or single malt whisky but presented in the warm context of a full-bodied rum.
Once on the palate, the complexity increases even more, revealing a rich layer of soft tannins, baked pineapple and several layers of spices. The flavors dance elegantly with your taste buds, feasting them with a rewarding experience that lingers extensively after swallowing.
Ron Izalco 15 is generous and intense, borderline overwhelming for the un-initiated, but exceedingly satisfying and fulfilling for the true rum aficionado.
Ron Izalco 15 Yr. Cask Strength is a minimum 15 years aged rum from some of the finest Central American rum distilleries. With no sugar, no additive and bottled at 110.6 proof, this rum is a delight for cask strength lovers, rum purists and aficionados.
Ron Izalco takes you on a journey to the mystic volcanic lands of Central America, widely known as the "Lighthouse of the Pacific". Standing tall at 6,447 feet, Izalco’s volcano and its magnificent fire, guided adventurous sea explorers to safe harbors for 188 years from 1770 until 1958 and then erupted again in 1966.
Beyond its spectacular fireworks, Izalco's molten legacy, combined with the tropical climate of Central America, has resulted in some of the most fruitful and succulent sugarcane fields in the world. Their mineral-rich black soil produces cane of unparalleled quality and taste.
This perfect recipe of mother nature along with the blessing of Mayan gods are very fortunate for us, because only the finest sugarcane can produce the finest rum. Aged to perfection for 10 years with Central American dedication and artisanal distinction, Ron Izalco is the phenomenon, the amber treasure, the connoisseur’s choice and the true essence of Central America.
