It truly is a surprise how close the 15 and the 12 year Botran are flavor profilewise. Neither is really a neat sipper since the alcohol smell and taste is rather strong and the burn at the end is not a nice surprise. Mix it with Coke and you will have a glimmer of hope. The 12 year Anejo is just marginally worse than the much more expensive Reserva 15 year old Botran.

Nothing really special about this fellow. Had it not been for the good company and great mood when tasting it, would probably have forgotten all about it already.
To try just once, just for the shake of it, ask the bartender to perform some extra orange peel treatment on the glass before serving so that you might get close to a "decent" outcome.

Pourer said age statement is solera (sigh), so there's only trace amounts of 12 year-old juice in here. But hey, it's fine; tastes how you'd expect. It also appears to be priced appropriately, and is not as dosed as many others from Central America.

Skip it for sipping, but highly recommended as a mixer.

7-, 6+

Wasn't impressed with this bottle.Tasting it neat was not great, but it improved with a bit of water. It's quite sharp, but you are not rewarded with a nice after taste. It makes for a nice sharp Cuba Libre though, so I'll use it for mixing. I paid €19 for this bottle and at that price I guess you can't expect a real sipper, so you get what you pay for.

For the price this is a good choice for adding to your favorite cocktail. Bit of a burn and harshness going down to deter from drinking neat.

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.

Decent Guatemala rum, even though there are obviously much better ones there. Ok neat, better mixed.
