Il fait parti de mon top 5 ! de la même trempe que le diplomatico et le dos maderas !

Botran är en Zacapa utan så mycket socker. Denna är fantastiskt god och helt klart värd att köpa. Kostar väl hälften av Zacapan. Tillverkas i samma fabrik som Z.

un bon gout de caramel. il est très doux. très abordable. suffisamment complexe, j ai bien aimé. je le recommende mais pour 18 ans c est decevant.

I got it from my wife and I really like it. Smooth and nice. A rum of my taste.

In my humble opinion the best rum from Guatemala.
Dark amber colour, dense, long legs, you can feel the slow aged spirit in there.

Smell like honey, some toffee and cocoa bit of chocolate and bit vainilla (probably from the bourbon cask).

The taste is smooth, soft, delicate; of course you can feel the sweetness, the cocoa and some invitation to the wine aroma, probably because the Oporto cask aged.

I used to enjoy this rum straight up, or with a chunk of ice. This rum is also known as a 18 years old (the brand new package) and another way to enjoy it is on creams or cake, especially the caribbean christmas cake with fruits and so on the sweetness and rum's profile just gives an extra to the dessert.

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

Une couleur généreuse et ensoleillé...très ron en bouche, des aromes de bois épicés sublimes, je ne regrette vraiment pas mon choix !!!

This is a very nice rum. It uses wine casks as part of the solera. Intensely smooth no burn at all. No funky taste or harshness or overpowering notes. This is a great blend and I highly recommend this to anyone. The price point is amazing for this quality. Could easily drink an entire bottle of this in one sitting.

Deep colour, complex flavour. A lovely high altitude solera rum.

Al igual que Zacapa 23, sistema solera y sabor muy similar. Menor precio que su competencia. Se disfrutan sus diferentes sabores si se toma derecho, se aprecia sabor a madera, jerez, vainilla y caramelo.

Este ron de 18 años de añejamiento, es bueno para tomarse con Coca-Cola y para disfrutar un momento con los amigos. Para mí sería un 7.5

Sweet taste with honey but still strong feeling of alcohol.

Posted over 3 years ago by Philip Rademaker from Curaçao with 50 ratings

The kind of rum I like. Sweet, but not as nice as the Zacapa 23. Kind of expensive, though, for the quality.

Découvert au hasard d’une dégustation ce rhum du Guatemala au nez léger est onctueux, agréable en bouche. Pas trop sirupeux, il est puissant et équilibré. Le bois, la vanille le caractérisent, et un peu de miel en fin de bouche.
A posséder.

Plus points for impressive carafe style new bottle. For me tastier than his younger brother Reserva. More complex.

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

Posted about 7 years ago by Andy from United Kingdom with 136 ratings

Great sweet yet subtle nose. Really pleasant balance of sweet, spice and a nice lingering oily finish. Little sour for my taste but really a top notch rum

Part of the new line from Botran after merging with Ron Zacapa. The influence from Zacapa is very present, to the point that it isn't worth buying Zacapa. Quite woody, very smooth.
