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

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.

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!

me gusta su sabor profundo , pero lo sirvo 15 minutos antes y lo dejo respirar , su alcohol no es muy fuerte pero se siente, sabor intenso hasta el final, no deja regusto fuerte en el paladar ,color dorado suave, mejor con un hielo para mi gusto !!

Linda botella (la nueva edición). Color caoba precioso.
Aroma intenso muy agradable, canela, vainilla, madera y tal vez higos.
En boca muy suave, seco y poco dulce. Algo de café, amargo, vainilla.
Es un ron que no es precisamente muy complejo, probablemente porque es solera, pero me gustó mucho!

Decent bottle, nice light brown color, toffee aroma. Dry rum (obviously very low if added sugar) but very pleasant and smooth taste, hints of coffee and oak, long aftertaste. It is a must for lovers of dry rums, definitely one of my best sipping rums.

kidding, but i like this. it has the bite of a higher proof rum with the softer finish of the lower proof overly sweetened rums. has a nice long lingering finish like a good bourbon. i like the solera style and this is no exception. i will buy a bottle next time Im at my local.

De los mejores rones calidad/ precio. Por 25 dolares tienes un buen ron de 18 anos, que me saben a 15, pero con un muy buen sabor y cantidad ya que la mayoria son de 1 litro. Lo compraria para cualquier reunion.

I picked up a bottle of Botran18 rum from Guatemala in Lima on travels. Great colour mid dark and limited on notes/smell, a little kick to start and a softer finish, taste is quite good , It's a good rum age to limits but recommended to sip as one does brandy and limit ice. No strong alcohol taste.

Great color and smell, smooth start but like others, I expected it to have a softer finish. Taste is quite good but I feel there is too much burn on the finish. Add just a splash of coke and it makes for a tasty drink. Good value if you can find it. I was able to pick up a bottle in Spain at the airport for 31 euro for a liter.

...Is an ok rum, with a bit thin body, vinous flavour and the good news is, it isn't as sweetened as one might expect - only 5g/litre sugar added.

In noise: toffee, fruity
In mouth: dry, almost no sweetness
Aftertaste: Long burn and oaky

Nice oak flavor when straight. Just a bit strong of an afterburn to lower it to a 6 from a 6.5

Posted about 1 year ago by Chet from United States with 182 ratings

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.

I am not able to drink this without Coke and lemon. Dry, flat, alcohol and water.

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...

Alcool présent. Rhum sec avec une certaine rondeur. Note de caramel et d'épice.

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.
