Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Super smooth and a smell of vanilla. Not too expensive and gives you a round taste
15 years of greatness. Great taste very Smooth. Definitely doesn’t need to be mixed.
Ron de Guatemala, note de vanille et caramel soupçon d'épices très agréable à boire, pour ma part pur car assez bon que pour être dégusté tel quel! Je valide et conseille ce Ron!
This stuff is almost impossible to find where I am from (Canada) but when I am in the Turks and Caicos this is my go to rum. It is not made in the TCI, their local rum is Bambarra, but that stuff cannot hold a candle to this. This makes an OK sipping rum but has a slightly harsh nose to it and lacks in the subtle flavors a lot of sipping rums have, TBH for sipping rums there are better out there. If there was a "pure" rum taste, this is probably it. Think the "rum" flavor in rum and raisin ice cream, this is it. As such it makes an amazing mixing rum as the strong rum flavor comes through and represents itself well. In a Cuba Libre or even a daiquiri this rum will represent itself well.
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
Very nice taste and smell! A really good one! Just enjoy it! :-)
I was told this rum was more toward the “spiced” spectrum, but found nothing like it. Nevertheless, its a good bottle, little overpriced.
Byl mi doporučen barmanem a rozhodně nezklamal, výborný rum, vyšší cena odpovídá kvalitě.
Touch of coffee and leather in the nose. Tastes of smoked wood, touch of vanilla, sandlewood, coffee... price/quality = good
Despite the promising declaration of 15 years. which might make expectations of this one to rise. need to remember it is Solera 15 years which means that it contains 15 year aged rums to some of it's part but i would assume that the real average and thus also the experience is somewhat equal to fully 7-8 year old Rums. Remembering this and considering the price asked which is more or less what a 7-8 year old aged Rum costs. it should be judged as such. i understand those who got disappointed due to the expectations of a 15 year older.
On the Nose: Dim, Hard to find Traces of developed unique Aromas, Etheric, Sugar.
On the Tongue: Sharp first encounter. Harsh strike of young Alcohols. after getting used a whole rainbow of Sweets and Candies is revealed including hints of Licorice! however be warned that it needs patience to allow it to breathe air. it is Tasty. not too sweet, Dry in the Sense of Appleton.
On the Throat: First Harsh Finish, needs to get used to, becomes nicer from the third sip and on. Dry and Medium in Length.
This is my impression after Two Evenings with it. Deserves the 7/10. It is decent. and though i didn't expect it to be fully matured for 15 years. however i would expect bit more subtle result. it is a Sipper but it makes me afraid to try my luck with it's younger brothers such as the 12 and Anejo 8 as sippers. final words: Decent sipper but Solera result not Balanced enough.
Notes of the oak barrels, candied fruit flavors and spices. Reminds a lot about zacapa 21
The first sip comes with a little punch, but the after taste is smooth. By the third sip it's enjoyable.
Well balanced, not so sweet, decent burn. Still worse than botran reserva.
I had this one on some special occasion so it is a bit special for me. I think it is better than it really is :)
Not exceptionnel rum but good price.
Rum with spices and cofee aromas.
Sweet nose with vanilla and sugar. Round and smooth with taste of vanilla and spices
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.
Not too pricy and tasty with some complexity and interesting flavors.
BUEN RON PARA MEZCLAR, RESPETA BIEN LOS SABORES CARACTERISTICOS DE CASA BOTRAN, SE APRECIA EL SABOR A MADERA Y AZUCAR
not what I did expect. Promising nose, flowers, fruits.
but on the palate id is not much to say. As many others, but fo rhtis price it is ok.
Nice sipping rum
Un peu alcool mais avec de la glace s'équilibre très bien. Belles saveurs, épices, bananes etc
Jeg er enig i anden anmeldelse her på siden, at denne rom godt kunne smage som en light udgave af zacapa. Jeg smagte begge to på samme tid og synes, at mange af smagsnuancerne er ens. Duft af vanilie og smag vanilie og lidt karamel. Dog er botran noget mere sprittet, hvilket trækker ned. Den kan ofte fås på tilbud til omkring 200 kr., og det gør den til et godt køb til prisen.
Pro někoho možná nudný, já v něm vidím opravdový rum. První doušek lehoulinká nakyslost, pak jen minimální sladkost a pak za pomocí koření dlouhé balancování do sudového dozvuku a zase lehce po sherry. Neschovává se za sladkost která u většiny rumů kryje pachutě z přehnaného mixování vůně a chutí. Kořením připomíná El Dorado 12, suchostí Doorlys XO. Rozhodně jemnější než Zacapa 23 a proto mi chutná víc. 7b za pořizovačku do 700kč přidávám na 7,4b.
Nedoporučuju těm co hledají sirupy :-)
