Botran 18 40° : Description and customer reviews

Botran 18 is a prestigious rum that has acquired its character and maturity in the fertile, temperate highlands of Guatemala. Blended from several rums aged between 5 and 18 years in a solera system, its complexity also comes from the different types of casks used for maturation: the American oak barrels have previously contained sherry and port wine.

This sophisticated rum is best drunk neat.

Laurent's tasting note

Its dress is amber.

The nose is clearly dominated by coconut and vanilla, signs of the ageing in American oak barrels. In the background, there are also notes of almond and tobacco. As if to finalise the nose, a discreet note of orange appears.

On the palate, the attack is supple and then becomes drier as the rum is kept in the mouth. Caramel, coconut and wood are the main aromas.

The finish is dry and even tannic. Coconut, tobacco, vanilla and again that little touch of orange make up the whole of the aromas present.

On video

This rum is part of the Discovery pack for sweet rums that we tasted live with Marc Goubert, a specialist in Latin rums, in a video to be found on our Youtube channel.

    An exceptional rum

  2. Louison

    A smooth and discreet rum, it reveals its aromas little by little and it is very pleasant. The vanilla is very present but we can also smell notes of honey. Perhaps some of the spices that accompany it. Good length in the mouth. I highly recommend it, it's a very nice discovery!

  3. Emmanuel

    I discovered it in the first rum box. It was my favourite in this box, both sweet and dry. Very good!

  4. Véro

    A sweet and dry rum. A full and tannic rum. A good rum!

  5. Brian

    You can feel that it's made with honey, it's great
