In Guatemala, the name Botran is highly recognized for both their rum legacy and sugar cane production. Their focus: finding the ideal conditions for high-altitude, slow aging rums.
By taking a hands-on approach throughout the entire distillation process, Botran continues to retain its reputation as one of the world’s top rum producers. Their Reserva and Solera 1893 premium rums continue to win critical acclaim and recognition for their complexity, depth, and rich, sweet notes, which are signature to the brand.
Tasting notes for the Solera 1893 are as follows:
Smooth, highly oaked, with an amber color and supple legs. Caramel, dried currant, with oak and vanilla spice. Moderate viscosity, little to no alcohol aroma or aftertaste. Round, complex, with a long, sweet (but not cloying) finish, and a touch of heat on the palate.
Buy it for a gift, summer or fall cocktails, or for a special occasion. SRP: $30/bottle
