Ron Botran 18 Añejo Rum
Ron Botran // Guatemala
Produced in a "solera" comprised of rums up to 18 years of age, Ron Botran 18 Añejo was matured in a combination of American white oak barrels, ex-sherry, and ex-port casks. The Botran Family gained notoriety as sugarcane growers before their foray into the rum business.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
Cask TypeAmerican white oak, ex-sherry, ex-port
"Ron Botran 18 is lush, decadent and hedonistic. It smells of ripe banana, caramel, dates, and shortbread cookies along with a slight vegetal note. Pure dessert on the palate with crème brûlée, and ripe fruits such as banana, peach, and pineapple. Dried leather is found as well. The mid-palate is fun and seductive while the finish is sweet and seems to linger endlessly. A must have for those who like sweeter styles of rum. "
