Un odeur et un gout de caramel. Ce n'est pas un rhum complexe. Doux en bouche. Un peu décevant pour un 15 ans solera mais pas mauvais. Je l'aime bien.

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.

Slightly burned taste with a little touch of vanilla

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 suggar, 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

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.

No tiene nada de lo que me gusta en un ron, es muy seco, de dulzor nulo, los 40 grados salen en cuanto entra en boca, de sabores agradables está faltó, en definitiva no me gusta igual con algún refresco mejora, el precio..........bueno me costó 15€/L por un poco menos está (aquí al menos el Bacardi 8, negrita topseries por bastante menos.....vamos, veo un montón de razones para no comprarlo, espero que vengan amigos para acabarlo)

Bon rhum de dégustation. A boire seul ou sur glace.

Interesting rum, smooth caramel and vanilla flavor but not too sweet...

J'attendais mieux de ce rhum de 15 ans. Malheureusement ce solera qui contient beaucoup plus de rhums de 5 ans manque d’aplomb. Il reste très éthylé et manque de teneur.

The price is good, taste is OK. Expected more. Not bad, but nothing special.

It is one of the best cost benefit equation. A very balanced rum. Nice color, nice aroma and some tasty flavor. Very good rum.

Rhum avec des arômes de fruits secs et d'épices. Assez fort en bouche sans piquer

Similar setup but bit harsher than zacapa 23 - still pretty sweet

Posted 9 months ago by M.R.J. from Finland with 203 ratings

Comes from the same distillery as Zacapa, and is also rather disappointing mixture of sherry wine, sweetener sugars added, and thin, young-feeling spirit.

I do not have a clear memory of this one but I can remember I appreciated it.

Částečná kopie Zacapy jak ve vůni tak i v chutí bez použití cukrů. Pro Zacapy mám slabost, i Botran mne hodně baví

Smooth tasting with a hint of caramel. Really enjoyable especially with Ginger Ale. Definitely worth it

Posted 10 months ago by Mrcaress from Canada with 12 ratings

Great rum! Really warms you inside with every sip. Strong but subtle with a caramel taste. Great bottle to bring camping with some old college buddies

This rum is nice with a nose of caramel and vanilla.
However, it is a bit short in the taste. It is probably an okay rum for most, but nothing special.

All the four Dominican "B"'s- Botran, Brugal, Bermudez, Barcelo, make excellent quality rums in the upper tier products of their lines.
This is quite tasty.
Drink neat, a few drops of water, wait a few minutes, it will really open up.
Great price for a top rum
