Flawed with a glimmer of hope
Pretty unique and in my opinion moderately tasty spicy strong rum (as you can expect from something that has "grew" in the copper barrells). Kicks like a stallion and its smell is extremely "nosy". Forawhile I quite liked the spicy tones which seldoms happens in my case (didn't quite like Bumbu, Marama, Spiced El Classico and similar material). If you ask me this rum is still little too much bashed here for what it offers but 100 people - 100 opinions.
P.S. I did not quite like it from the start, don't let price tag and elevated expectations coming from a neat bottle ruin your first experience and go deeper in several days.
Aroma is spiced First taste is sweet but very soon cobered by strong herbal tones - almost like Jaeggemeister. Aftertaste is short and bitter.
Buen color y hermosa botella cono también la lata.
En nariz para solo 45%, muy alcohólico, pero decente. Las especias se huelen pero no sobresalen tanto. Lo mismo ocurre en boca. La canela y cardamomo resaltan un poco mas.
Es un buen especiado, aunque personalmente no son mis favoritos. Pero de lejos mejor que un capitán Mirgan o Kraken.
Sampled this spiced rum at the Cardiff Rum Festival at the Botran stall.
This is a high quality premium spiced rum retailing at around £60 and coming in at 45% abv. This spiced rum from Guatemalan distillers Ron Botran is a sophisiticated infusion of fine rum with clove, cardamom, vanilla and ginger. I was told by the lady at the stall that the process of adding the spice flavours is similar to that of the many craft gins on the market. The spice flavours are delicate and not overpowering like many spiced rums. It's a perfect sipper and no doubt mixes perfectly with cola or ginger ale.
