Ron Isla Coiba Reserva 15 anos
Selected at the “EXCELLENCE SPIRITS AWARD 2020” as
Marine essence in American oak wood.
The 15-year aging gives the rum its vanilla notes, typical of American oak, and its intense amber color. Fruity notes leave room for spicy scents and a clear note of tobacco. The peculiarity of Isla Coiba 15 años is given by the marine pungency that recalls the scent of the water’s edge, which is released in all its pleasant intensity by adding a few drops of water to the rum. The nose is enriched with hints of chocolate given by aging. The soft and intense taste is balanced by a dry note that goes well with vanilla and chocolate hints.
The marine touch recalls the origins of this rum, a pure Panamanian essence of the highest quality since the origins of the distillery, founded in 1908 by Don Juan Ramirez on the most remote island of Panama, Coiba.
Isla Coiba 15 anos is a dark amber-coloured rum. Intense, complex. You can immediately perceive its refinement with those clear sensations of American oak vanilla. A beautiful very pulpy fruit and a conclusion full of interesting and sweet spices where tobacco commands. Its marine origin does not take long to be discovered through a marine pungency, a feeling very similar to a wet beach.
A rich and varied olfactory finale with a nice hint of dark chocolate. With a few drops of water at room temperature the marine essence explodes and a beautiful note similar to freshly burnt orange peel appears. In the mouth it is dense but never redundant. Soft, certainly savoury with vanilla returns defined by chocolate.
Flavour is not very long but it has considerable finesse, with a dry, decisive note that balances the sensations clearly and precisely.
A quality rum that is truly reminiscent of the uncontaminated and breathtaking environment from which it is born.
