Cardiff Rum Festival good 12 year solera well aged and a decent sipper

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.

rien de particulier ni au nez ni en bouche, correct avec glaçon et cigare^^

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.

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

This is one of our go to evening sipping rums... good for curling up on the couch and reading or watching TV or chatting with friends. It doesn't hold any surprises, just warm and friendly.

Esa suavidad guatemalteca, toques dulces muy ligeros, se deja beber, me gusta.

Not great depth, but it makes a great cocktail. Too sharp without some sugar.

Small mouth and thin body. Strong. The alcohol rules over the aromas. Bitter and strong

I was expecting more but there is a big difference between botran 12 and 15 years; try to drink it with sweet drinks to compensate the alcohol smell

Good classic smell. Nice taste but a bit spicy at the finish.

bon rhum, pas très doux contrairement à ce que son odeur pourrait laisser penser

Unlike Botran Reserva its way too alcoholic with plain body. Better go for older ones which are awesome.

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.

Heavy and chocolate taste. Try it with a chocolate together.

Good valmue for money 😊 Not AS complex as big brother Ron Zacapa, but pretty close
