The little brother of the Botucal Reserva is less sweet and exudes a nice aroma in the glass.
I would prefer the older brother Reserva Exclusiva.
But if Reserva Exclusiva is too sweet for you, you should try the Mantuano. It has also the same profile, but it's a littbe bit harsh and need much more time in the glas.

Just let some oxygen in the bottle and close it again, after some months it will be much better.
I would rate my half bottle after four mounths of evaporation almost an 8.

Smell: caramel, banana, vanilla, burned sugar, dried fruits, wood
Taste: some caramel, banana, vanilla, dry fruits, wood and earth, spice.
Nice burn.
Bitterness in the aftertaste, after that fruity aroma.

Sweetness: 2.5/5
Spice: 2.5/5
Fruit: 2.5/5
Mildness: 3.5/5
Value (24€): 2.5/5

The smoothness makes this rum very drinkable. The taste of alcohol is very single. The taste of vanilla is prominent and makes this a sweet rum.

Mir ist er zu süß, hat zu wenig Tiefe.
Trinkbar ja, aber definitiv kein Muss.

Skúsil som ho u kamoša. Je trochu menej sladký ako Reserva, viac cítiť alkohol ale vzhľadom k cene celkom fajn pitie. Aj keď za ešte nižšiu cenu je Plantation Dark a ten je vraj lepsi. Vo vôni vanilka, karamel a ja tam cítim aj cherry. Chuť podobná. Pokročilých rumarov neoslni ale pre začínajúcich fajn a aj do drinkov by sa určite hodil.

Sweet dry fruits aroma- almost well aged twany port. Not how it tastes though..... starts sweet, dried fruits (dates, raisins) and caramel then moves to a woody (oak) caramel, slight cocoa and very slight spices at the end. Flavour fills your sense but does not last long which is disappointing. I like it but it’s not fantastic.

В аромате - карамель, сухофрукты и дерево. Аромат насыщенный, но, в то же время, мягкий. Вкус приятный, с доминирующей карамелью, более резкий, чем Reserva Exclusiva, спиртуозность сильнее. Послевкусие, к сожалению, короткое и жестковатое, но, в целом, приятное. Хороший ром без затей.

Aroma: caramel, dried fruits and oak - rich and smooth. Taste is nice, caramel dominates, but it's more rough than Reserva Exclusiva - spirit bitterness is stronger. Aftertaste is, unfortunately, short and harsh, but still nice overall. A good simple rum.

Comparing to Diplomatico 12 years, it is not even close to this taste. Maybe good for drinks, but not for shots.
