Review: Pixan Solera Especial

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 2, 2020

Pixan Rum is produced at Destileria Espiritus del Norte a relatively new distillery located in Monterrey in northeastern Mexico. Apparently Pixan comes to us linguistically from the Mayan people and it is a word which roughly means ‘Spirit which gives life’.

Pixan Solera Especial is sold as a premium Solera aged rum. I visited a few retail websites, and found that most were implying that the spirit was a 6 Year solera aged rum. This would mean the oldest rum in the blend would be aged about 6 years with the average age of the blend being somewhat younger. I also discovered that the solera was comprised of American oak barrels, and also saw evidence that the Pixan rum was finished for at least 3 months in old wine barrels.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Pixan Solera Especial

“… Butterscotch and vanilla lead out accompanied by oak spice and almond flavours. Raisins and grapes can be tasted in the background. Orange peel and light baking spices (cinnamon and ginger) add to a lively mouth feel …”

Please enjoy my review of this new Mexican rum.
