Color:Dark caramel
Nose:Strong vanilla,caramel, alcohol
Tail:aftertaste is long lasting and warming

Bottle: I have the old bottle,this is a masterpiece!The new one is pretty standard,under average.

I really like the old bottle, the rum is similar to Zacapa,but not as sweet,for me much more interesting! Price is very reasonable!

Was not very impressed with the flavor, smell, or taste. One of the most disappointing aged rums I've had. Still better than a majority if white rums, but at the bottom of aged.

Pomerne výrazný, mierne vanilkovy a malo sladký rum bez zlej pachute

A rum with an honest approach. The nose is decent, offering slightly sweet and dry notes of molasse, dates, caramel, vanilla and oak, but it lacks a bit reffinement. The medium bodied palette has a distinctive oaky character, but supplements this with lightly sweet molasse and dried fruits, giving a decent balance. There's a medium long aftertaste, consisting mainly of deep rounded oaky notes.

Rond, doux sans être trop sucré, épicé.
Il exprime son style (solera) tout en finesse.
Bon rapport qualité/prix.
Après plusieurs dégustations je suis toutefois un peu déçu du manque de personnalité de cette bouteille...

næsen er en anelse bedre end smagen. næsen er sødmefuld og med noter af sherry. smagen er skarpere end hvad næsen indbyder til, du får en lille overraskelse. smagen er semisød (7/10), men mest af alt tør. rigtig fin og godkendt afslutning. den smager som en lagret rom uden tilsat sødme. 7.5 af mig.

Gave it some time to breathe & tried it again. It's a good rum but missing something. Just a very simple smooth rum. I would buy it again.

This one was a good one.. Great suddle nose, In the mouth it was lean, almost like a thick whisky.. With some burning sensation.. The finish is one of the longest i have experienced.. Full with complex tones that explodes and slowly fades away.. Great for a cold evening to sip on..

Endnu en af de rommer der i eftersmagen har noter af røg.
Denne er lidt lig Ron Zacapa dog med en eftersmagt af røg, dog er den en anelse mere tør en Ron Zacapa.

I hope the change of the ownership of Zacapa won't influence the future of this rum.Its an almost perfect rum,typical Guatemalan,not as rich as a 23yo Zacapa but the price is the half. There is no rum in the price-class of 30€ which is better then this one. Wonderful teardrop bottle,quite heavy.Dark amber color, in the nose fruity,tasty.Compared to the smooth Zacapa a little bit of a bite in the throat,but it disappears immadiately and a little explosion of aromas follow.I start to hoard this,just for case it disappears

Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Guatemala
Aroma: Aroma je suché, kořenité (stejně jako u Reservy hlavně skořice), s tóny kůže a sušeného ovoce. (84 b)
Chuť: Chuť je více do sucha, kořenitá, s kůží a dřevem, nic řídkého, docela bohatá. V dochuti je patrná mírná dřevitost a slabě i nahořklost. (84 b)
Body: 84
Shrnutí: Od nákupu této lahve jsem si sliboval o trochu víc, tím spíš, že mladší stájový bratříček Botran Reserva dopadl při ochutnávce lépe. Špatný rum to ale není.
Teď už ho ale seženete spíš v novém designu lahve, měl jsem ještě starší plnění.
