Bonampak Dark Rum
A very interesting dark amber color due to its double aging in both American ex-whisky casks and Chiapas oak. A soft and smokey dark Rum for sipping neat or in Rum or Whisky cocktails. The Bonampak Dark Rum Double Cask Aging is an 80-proof rum that has been aged in two different types of oak barrels. The first barrel is a charred American oak barrel, which imparts a smoky flavor to the rum. The second barrel is a French oak barrel, which adds a hint of sweetness and complexity to the rum. The result is a smooth and flavorful rum with notes of caramel, vanilla, and oak. This rum is perfect for sipping neat or in a variety of cocktails.
In Chiapas, Mayan symbology covers all aspects of life, and the Jaguar, the face that distinguishes Bonampak Rum, is one of its most important emblems. He is incorporated as a sacred being in the symbolic universe of Mesoamerican cultures due to his habits.
For example, the Jaguar was considered a powerful animal, possessor of profound knowledge, and carrier of energy, just as rum should be considered.
Within the Mayan worldview, the jaguar belongs to the kingdom of night but also to that of light, like you, because you carry within you that duality that identifies you with Bonampak Rum.

Casa Caibarí, since 1948, is a producer of exceptional rums and spirits thanks to its fortunate location in Tapachula, Chiapas, Mexico, in the geographical strip 15 degrees north known as the rum strip for being ideal for the cultivation of sugar cane full of sweets and for ende for single distillates.
The Izapa Rum produced here has dressed Mexico in a garb of lights for being recognized among the most outstanding rums in the world. He is a double Silver Medal winner at the 2012 and 2013 International Rum Conference, held in Europe, and champion of the 2013 Rum Renaissance Festival, held in Miami where he won four Gold Medals, 2 of them as the best in their category.
A fundamental component in its formula is its aging in French and American oak barrels very close to the Mayan Archaeological Site called Izapa, from which it acquired its name, enjoying the influence of the energy and mysticism that radiates from this magical place chosen as a Mecca by an of the most dazzling cultures not only of the continent but of humanity: the Mayans
