A lovely rum from Guatemalan rum company Botran. The notable thing about this distillery is that their warehouses are located in the mountains of Guatemala, with the high altitude and cool climate ensuring that long maturation can be achieved.
Ron Botran is said to be made from “virgin sugar cane honey”.
This rum has been aged in a solera system (in action since 1893) containing Port casks, American oak and Sherry for up to 18 years, giving it a wonderful complexity and depth of flavour.
A truly delightful spirit, with rich notes of pressed flowers, tobacco, coffee, chocolate, dried fruits, sweet grape and red wine.
One of the best value for money rums around.
