Tasty, but not quite great
This was kind of a test. I wanted to see how low I can go, price-wise, and still be satisfied. It's barely acceptable to me. But by spending just a little bit more, I get a much more satisfying experience.
It has some flavours from Botran 18, but not that intensive.
The taste is watery, the dilution is bad. As the rum gets warmer I get vanilla, paper, some oranges, wood and tannins.
The nose is not bad, but the taste is too watery. The initial taste has almost no flavours.
In the middle I get vanilla, paper, some orange and wood with tannins.
The finish is spicy and good with orange and wood.
I would rate it with 56 points, because there is a strong problem with the dilution.
Nose: orange, wood, dry fruits, spice, flowery notes
Taste: watery start, vanilla, orange, some paper, wood, tannins
Finish: spice, orange, wood
Value (15€): 1.5/5
Light to medium amber in color. Strong smell of banana. Moderately creamy mouthfeel. Tastes a little sweet with some caramel. Caramel lingers to the finish after everything else has cleared out. A little bit of vegetal tobacco and vanilla. Surprisingly I don’t taste the banana that is so overwhelming when sniffed. Overall a pretty good rum.
Pri otváraní sa mi rozmrvil korkový vrchnák a padol do rumu... Nervy, ale potom som ovoňal a celkom príjemná vôňa
Chuť bola paráda a na to, že je pomerne lacný, príjemné pohladil chuťové bunky
Light on the nose, oak, vanilla, chocolate, rather smooth taste with pronounced oak, the aftertaste is almost not there. Passable as sipper, there is nothing unpleasant, but also nothing I would like to return to.
Perhaps I expected more because of the origin (Guatemala) but I didn’t like me neither mixed nor alone. In the range of price you can get much more.
