If you find Zacapa 23 has good flavour but slightly on the sweet side, I believe Botran Reserva will be your rum!

Charred wood with floral maple syrup. Pretty earthy with peppery, toffee and sweet baking spice (clove).

Peppery and earthy on the first sip. Follow with oaky notes and chocolate truffle with touch of orange zest. Fruitiness of jackfruit, raisins and dates.
Drier compare to other Guatemalan rum which when thru solera system too.

Dry finishing, as if enjoying a piece of chocolate truffle with black pepper and coated with dark coco.

Great balance from the bitterness, earthy and sweet flavours.

upon initial tasting I did not like this rum at all, the taste and burn left something to be desired. However, I did enjoy it's smoothness. By the end of the bottle I grew to appreciate it's intricacies and would recommend to anyone looking to diversify their stock.

Good rum tasting. Very interesting subtle vanilla aromas.

Főleg a karamell és az aszalt gyümölcsök a dominánsak..talán még pici fahéj...olyan "klasszikus" rumos, alkoholos...kicsit unalmas !!

I've been drinking rum for over 50 years, so i think my rum palate is as good as any.
My preferred drink is Bacardi white with Coke no ice. Yet occasionally I'll try another brand for educational purposes only. I was delighted with this 15 year Botran's rich sweet molasses aroma, which lights up all your taste buds. I always use a mix; coke or eggnog. This is top quality rum.

Tried the Ron Botran Reserva alongside the 15y Botran and they both have a healthy dark color, very similar smell profile, surprisingly strong coffee and oak taste and a bit of a kick at the end. Botran Reserva somehow is a tad more expensive than the 15y Botran which is surprising since the Reserva is a blend of 4 to 14 year old rums.

Not a bad choice at all. Was definitely worth the $40.

Connected with my Rome visit, I appreciate the balance of taste, roughness and aroma.

This is an ok rum i guess. Me personally I did not like it, not a fan of the taste at all, its almost like drinking really cheap liquor. I'll pass on this one.
