Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Had this at Manchester Rum Fest, and hugely enjoyed it which is why I was surprised to see so many average reviews on here.
I found it to have a sweet initial taste followed by a smokey body and a warming aftertaste. easy to drink and nice and light that I could drink multiple.
I might not have the most discerning palette but I know what I like, and I liked this
If your a fan of zacapa you would enjoy this has a lot of flavours and good taste
Když jsem tento rum zkusil, hned jsem si vzpomněl na El Dorado 12, které má základní dubové tóny velmi podobné. Botran 18 je ale oproti El Doradu 12 méně sladký, jemněší a víc do dřeva. Výborné pití komu chutná Guatemala.
Bon goût, deuxième gorgée passe mieux. A gouter une fois encore avant de se faire un avis definitif
This is gutemala rum, little dry taste little harder nose.
Similar to Zacapa 23y but not so strong alcohol taste. Thiner body and much less layers than Diplomatico 12y.
A bit of a sherry taste at first, then oak and burnt sugar.
Once again, no suprises—solera-aged, little to no dosage, latin-style rum with a bit of 18-yo juice inside. More oak coming through compared to the 12. A solid choice, for the right price.
nez caramel mou
goût banane , vanille. beaucou de force sans sentir l éther
longueur souple et épaisse ,laisse des dépôts tres sucre comme la vanille cristalliser sur la fin
Good quality solera rum a tad too expensive in my opinion! Sampled this rum at Cardiff Rum Festival on the weekend. It's a decent sipper and I feeling would be better as a cocktail base. Did purchase a bottle for £40 and polished it off in the night so that's got to say something
Douceur du caramel et des épices. rhum plutôt agréable.
Peut se boire avec un dessert ou en association avec du chocolat.
ron bueno para mezclarse con coca cola, nada del otro mundo
Good tasty rum, really different than the 12Y Botran.
Alcool présent. Rhum sec avec une certaine rondeur. Note de caramel et d'épice.
Vona velmi malo vyrazna, slabe naznaky melasy, vanilky... V chuti pomerne dost preraza alkohol, rum je skor suchsi, viac citit drevitost suda. Povedal by som, ze je to priemerny, nicim vynimocny rum, nezaujal ma velmi... Flasu by som si nekupil...
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.
In noise: toffee, fruity
In mouth: dry, almost no sweetness
Aftertaste: Long burn and oaky
Vůně: po vanilce, ořískách, lehce alkoholová
Chuť: štiplavý nutné nechat nadechnout
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.
Nice oak flavor when straight. Just a bit strong of an afterburn to lower it to a 6 from a 6.5
This rum starts out great from nose to mouth but the finish just falls short on flavor. I like the 12 year much more... good just not great.
Tasty rum but I would not expect this much burn for the price point. Still definitely sippable, though.
For its price it is reasonable but I had to add ice and/or coke. Don’t have the balances needed to drink it as a brandy
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.
