Featured Artisan: The Other Side of the Story collection
A rum that’s distinctive in every way. Ron Izalco 10-year Aged Rum is made to be sipped, a premium rum that you can enjoy the same way you enjoy a fine whiskey or scotch, though it also makes a dreamy cocktail.
This sourced and blended rum was created over a three year period, in consultation with a widely-respected blending team, by an individual totally devoted to crafting a best-in-class rum of uncompromising quality.
In recent years the average person's idea of rum hasn't kept pace with all that's happening in the rum world, where there's tremendous enthusiasm for new and different rum expressions. Signs seem to indicate that rum might just be the next spirit-of-the-moment.
And Ron Izalco might just be the rum that takes it there. It's already an industry up-and-comer, having won numerous awards, and is now a must-have bottle in France, Denmark, and the UK. Ron Izalco is finally releasing more widely into the US, and Curiada is thrilled to be one of its exclusive launch partners.
"Exotic aromas of patchouli, beeswax, apricots, and jasmine stun. The palate opens slowly, revealing a tongue-coating array of flavors: toffee, almonds, sweet tobacco, and ripe peach. A sweetness comes in mid-palate, warming the mouth with an oatmeal-and maple fluidity. Enchanting. —Meridith May, The Tasting Panel
750ml & 86 Proof
||Fruity aroma that calls to mind apricots, prunes, honey, caramel and freshly-squeezed cane juice. It starts smooth and mellow, and then builds to a wonderful complexity, with undertones of American oak, toasted nuts, and sweet pipe tobacco. The finish lingers satisfyingly, though expect to want another pour.
Ways to Enjoy

Ron Izalco is named after the volcanic terrain of Mount Izalco in Central America. This active volcano's mineral-rich black soil, combined with the tropical climate of the region, yields some of the highest-quality sugarcane in the world
Aged to perfection for ten years, in ex-bourbon barrels, the spirit consists of a blend of the highest grade of molasses-based rum available from some of the finest rum producing distilleries in Central America, creating a memorable expression devoid of artificial colors or flavoring.
This is a thoroughly modern rum. With care, dedication, and devotion to the highest-quality experience, it builds on rum's storied traditions. And yet it also brings a fresh perspective with nuance, depth, and a long finish. Experience what rum can be.
