Botran Solera 1893 is a dark rum from Guatemala aged using the Solera method in casks that previously held sherry, port and bourbon.
Il fait parti de mon top 5 ! de la même trempe que le diplomatico et le dos maderas !
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.
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.
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.
Une couleur généreuse et ensoleillé...très ron en bouche, des aromes de bois épicés sublimes, je ne regrette vraiment pas mon choix !!!
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.
Deep colour, complex flavour. A lovely high altitude solera rum.
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
very smooth taste. vanilla and caramel. Easy to drink. very good price for this quality.
I got it from my wife and I really like it. Smooth and nice. A rum of my taste.
Nose: Very oaky, intense and complex.
Palate: smooth and well balanced, but maybe a bit thin, somewhat smoky, not too sweet.
In contrary to other reviewers, I noticed absolutely no burn.
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.
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.
Klasse Rum zum Top Preis. 22€ habe ich für diesen vollmundigen Rum nur bezahlt. Leichte Würze, wenig süße aber mild. Klasse!!!
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
Good rum that always seems to please me. I love the taste and afterburn
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
The kind of rum I like. Sweet, but not as nice as the Zacapa 23. Kind of expensive, though, for the quality.
Really Good ans easy to drink rum !
Caramel and chamallow taste
Sweet taste with honey but still strong feeling of alcohol.
Ovocny a jemny rum.. Lehce na konci prijemne zastipe. Ale ta chut ovoce, mozma visni je super
Velmi dobrý rum. Jemný, chutná po karamelu. Velice dobrý rum za tu cenu.
My first experience with this was at a new year's party when someone brought this. I was curious and tried it. Loved it. Shocked it was a rum and have been into high quality sipping rums over whiskey ever since. This is such a nice balance of deep caramel and a touch of spice that leans towards a molasses flavor but just hints at it. I'm not a fan of molasses heavy rums and this gets right up to the edge for me but doesn't cross over into the heavy molasses flavors. This I can down neat or on the rocks. It's not the smootest, but the burn is pretty mild. The flavors are heavy up front and the finish is very slight and relatively lasting. This is a solid choice for whatever your purpose. Sip or mix it will go down well.
