Stay away from this one. When travelling in Guatemala I was always happily consuming the Botran 12, but its younger sibling is considerably harsher with unbalanced flavours and a lingering chemical aftertaste. Felt like it was rushed. Made a poor rum & coke as well.

Decent rum. Vanilla, more mineral and spicy than sweet. Still gotta try the 18 and 25...

priced as the reserva blanca, good for cocktails with anejo rum

Maybe good for cocktails. Seems too young to catch any real flavor from the barrels. I only rate it as high as more "matured" Cobre because of cheap price tag

Tried this one in a blind tasting compared to the Botran 5 and Travellers 5 year (Belize) and the Botran 8 is by far the worst. None of these rums are good for drinking neat, because they all have a pretty strong afterburn, but the Botran 8 adds a weird rubber flavor to it.

For its price it has all I need. The nose is light and spicy, the taste is oak, tobacco, leather, vanilla, pleasant with coke and mixed drinks. I cannot detect anything bad in it when I taste it straight, the taste reveals the younger components of the mix, but this is expected for the price. Overall this rum does similar job in mixed drinks as HC3 as it adds the same spectrum of smell and taste notes but in its own - and more mellow - way. Zero sugar added. Excellent value for money.

Not bad, but better to spend more money for older and better one

Ron de 8 anos que parece de 5, solo para mezclar. No me gusto.

Probiert im Rahmen eines Tumtastings.
Leider schmeckt er mir überhaupt nicht. Pur viel zu scharf hilft auch Eis nicht wirklich. Höchstens als Mixgetränk mit Cola akzeptabel.
Im Aroma würzig ist er im Geschmack hart brennend, im Abgang extrem sprittig. Leider absolut keine Kaufempfehlung.

Had a bottle of this when vacationing in El salvador. Was average with lime & coke, so probably not good as a sipper either. Looking forward to try the older blends, though.

Botrano je pro me jemny rum, ale bez vyraznejsi chuti. Nakonci lehounce alkoholova chut. Takovy lepsi prumer 5.8 bodu.
