Vacationing in Acapulco and tasting Botran Solera 1893 18y and Matusalem Gran Reserva 18y back-to-back. Botran has a pretty decent bottle design and high end sturdy box which reminds me of good quality single malt whisky boxes. Color is semi dark with oak intruding both nose and palate. Some burn at the end, but rather mild. This is the best rum Botran has to offer. Matusalem 5 - Botran 7.

Tonight, this is the game of two grandfathers (in the same price range stadium).
First goal scored by Botran: it is classic Solera. Good balance between dry and sweet. Charming spicyness.
Then there was massive attack of AN. 3:1 in 5 minutes.
Absolutely delicious, authentic. Naturally sweet, still fine smoky.
Both did not play fair on nose: two yellow cards for Botran, one for AN.
Both are worth the money and got into a playoff of the best drinks.

P.s. this is my first stuff (and staff) from Guatemala. Next team - Angostura.

Paired yet again with the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. This is a very pleasant rum as well. Not quite there with the Bristol's Jamaican 8yo though, but close. The smokiness of burned Salazar, the saltiness of Davy Jones & the sweetness of Elizabeth. Then the aged rum breath of Jack & Gibbs, fruitiness of Cannibal Island & the exotic touch of monkey Jack. Ending with the smoothness of Will without the bitter kick of Barbossa. Aye to that I say! Cheers!

The alcohol is very present in the aftertaste, but in general a well bodied ok rum. Not amazing, not horsepiss

Ron Botran 18 is lush, decadent and hedonistic. It smells of ripe banana, caramel, dates, and shortbread cookies along with a slight vegetal note. Pure dessert on the palate with crème brûlée, and ripe fruits such as banana, peach, and pineapple. Dried leather is found as well. The mid-palate is fun and seductive while the finish is sweet and seems to linger endlessly. A must have for those who like sweeter styles of rum.
