Tasty, but not quite great
It is a lot alcoholic. You can smell it on the nose. Taste is quite good, but the afterburn when you swallow it is not the one you are looking for.
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.
It's....rum. As distinctly average as possible, in presentation, pour, taste, and finish. Really not memorable. Drinkable, mostly, although a bit more oil burn than I'd want for such an otherwise lackluster rum.
Disappointment. That's the first and last feeling about this. First you taste watery alcohol, then bit harsh biting. Finish has some fruit and warm, but with oaky note. Drinkable, not even near worth the price.
Sweet smell with a dry leathery taste. All and all; not bad, but lacking.
I knew the moment I first swirled it around and those thin legs presented themselve it might be a bit thin and unexciting.
Still not a bad rum to have in the collection.
