It's a nice rom that looks great in the glass.
Nice aroma and the taste as well.

Sampled the Botran Reserva 15 yr rum and detected a slight smell and taste of caramel and vanilla. As far as I know this rum has very little, if any, added sugar therefore the sweetness comes from a natural process. The rum, however, is not complex as one would expect from a Solera 15 years. Overall I enjoyed sipping on this rum but it did not WOW me in the least.

This one is a sneaky bastard.
The nose is not that amazing and the palet seems dull because of that. Then, when you keep drinking, the nose still stay's ordinary, but you start getting a good taste now in your mouth and you will find out that it's not that dull as you thought. The taste is quite nice and the you will keep drinking and will have a glass to many before you notice it...

Une rondeur agréable mais il manque d'arome. Trop plat.

Byl mi doporučen barmanem a rozhodně nezklamal, výborný rum, vyšší cena odpovídá kvalitě.

It won’t blow you away but it has solid characteristics and base you would expect from an aged rum. Very sweet on the nose with vanilla doninating. Pretty mild on tongue but has decent afterburn. Has decent kick, but lacks the real complexity. This rum does many things good, but none great. Despite that it’s a solid all-arounder and can be had straight. The more I drink this rum, the more I am beginning to appreciate it. Reminds Zacapa and Plantation XO but is relatively less sweet, which is appreciated. Real rating is 7.2-7.5 depending on mood.

Nez boisé, vanille et fruité
Bouche moelleuse, épicée et fruitée.
Finale boisée et tannique.

It has some similarities with Zacapa 23, it's younger and less sweet. The smell is very good.
The taste is also good but not as sweet as Zacapa 23.
I think this one is much better than Zacapa 12. This is my personal Zacapa 15 :)
I like it. Very good value for money.
Ron Botran 1893 solera (18y) is more intensive and better, but i like this one also.

Smell: caramel, vanilla, orange, herbs, lard/fat, wood
Taste: caramel, burned sugar, apricot, wood/cask, spice, some dry fruit (plum)
Aftertaste: watery caramel and burned suggar, plum (dark fruit)

Sweetness: 1.5/5
Fruit: 2.5/5
Spice: 2.5/5
Mildness: 3.5/5
Value (25€): 4/5

Ce rhum très aromatique est vieilli selon la méthode solera, ainsi des rhums de 5 à 15 ans d'âge constituent ce blend. Vieilli dans les hautes altitudes du Guatemala, la part des anges est limitée.

La famille Botran s'est attachée à perpétuer ce qui a fait sa renommée, en veillant à la sélection de ses cépages de cannes, pour répondre aux critères strictes de leur cahier des charges.
Ils obtiennent ainsi un rhum traditionnel (de mélasse), entretenant leur réputation de meilleur producteur de rhum guatémaltèque.

Botran Reserva est un assemblage de rhums vieillis au travers de nombreux fûts, (bourbon, fût de bourbon brûlés, de Sherry et de Porto) pendant 5 à 15 ans permettant à leur blend de capter sa large palette aromatique, et confère au Botran Reserva toute la complexité et la richesse de ses arômes.

Nez:  le nez est fin. On note les fruits sec et la vanille avec un léger boisé.
Bouche: une surprenante douceur avec un profil sec, sur une jolie note de tabac blond.
Finale: longue, boisée et sèche sur un arôme de vanille.
Notre avis: une véritable identité, un positionnement prix idéal, jolie surprise dans une belle bouteille. Attention le profil sec peut surprendre si vous êtes adepte de rhums ronds et très gourmands.
