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.
Another rum that proves you don't have to pay an arm and a leg for a great rum. I found this locally for $24 and after reading some reviews decided to give it a shot. Glad I did. This rum is produced by Industrias Licoreras de Guatemala, the same distillery that brings you Ron Zacapa. But make no mistake, this is not the just a cheap version of the sugary Zacapa. Wonderfully smooth, and just enough sweetness to compliment the play of flavors without over powering them with a syrupy, sugariness. According to other reviewers, it's coming in at a 0-5g sugar test. It mellows into a comfortable finish, with virtually no alcohol burn. I'm giving this an 8 based on quality and price. Will definitely buy again.
Vanilla, toffee and slight spicy aromas from the glass. It doesn't smell as heavy as I would've thought. It is very smooth with no harshness. Prolonged sitting in the glass reveals a warm peach, oak and leathery aroma. The taste is warming sweet oak and toffee with a dark sherry like edge. The finish is pure dairy fudge, oak and a fruity sweetness. Better than its stablemate Zacapa
A sweet rum that goes down like a fine whiskey. Anybody claiming this isn't sweet and smooth doesn't know what she is talking about.
N- Molasses, soft clove, dried fruit, solera vatted on the light side with not much going on. Feel the rising tide but shallow in reality. (83/18)
P- Present of sweet and spicy oak, sour fruits, young mango soaked with molasses with dashes of pounded assam-boi, seems some red fruits lurking. Nothing unpleasant, elementary but ok. (85/19)
F- Medium, lasting spicy coat, fragile on taste and stays generic. (82/17)
Weighted Rate- 72pt

If you are into sweet rums this is not the bottle for you. The tones are suddle and it goes down a little harsher than some sweeter rums. However, if you enjoy the rich oak flavor and like a well rounded rum without to much complexity than this might just be your bottle.
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.
