Ron Botran Anejo Solera 1893 Rum didn’t start making rum until 1939, so don’t think you’re getting rum that’s over 100 years old here. But this solera-style spirit certainly does have some really old spirit in it, judging by the deep amber color and intense aroma of wood here. The flavor profile is classic for a quality anejo: Almonds, marshmallows, a touch of black cherry, and lots and lots of turbinado sugar. A little bitter on the finish, alas, but overall this is a really quality rum
Ron Botran Anejo Solera 1893 Rum is aged under the Solera System in the mountains of Guatemala, in American white oak barrels, barrels that previously aged old Sherry wines, and where exclusive Port wines matured.
Ron Botran Anejo Solera 1893 Rum is distilled, aged and bottled at the Botran facilities in Guatemala and shares many of the attributes of the other Botran products. From the aroma through the finish, the rich texture of tropical fruit, baking spices, dried nuts and smoky wood are exuded from the glass to the palate.
The body is complex and balanced with caramelized banana notes in the body leading the lingering smoky finish. While not overly dry, Botran Solera is also not considered a sweet rum but one that will stand the test of time.
