Nothing special. Very light but fruity and sweet.

Ich habe gedacht er wäre wirklich süßer. Aber ist er überhaupt nicht. Sehr angenehm intensives holz. Erinnert sogar ein wenig an guyana. Keine übertribene vanilla und caramel Wie beim 12 jährigen. Kommt sehr ehrlich und authentisch daher. Bin positiv überrascht

I am positively surprised! Why drink the standard Botucal when this is very similar and much less sweet? The nose is not very complex, but good. My first thing that pops into my head is cherry bubble gum with chocolate caramel. In the mouth, wood dominates with fruit and caramel. The overwhelming sweetness of the Reserva Exclusiva is absent here in the 8y. Could be a little rounder in the mouth and also more intense, but for the price totally fine. Is finally a young rum

An interesting venture, with a very subtle nose which hints at sweetness and honey, but part ways for a complex and more commanding flavour, that brings heat and spice, woody and charred flavours and finished with a long, tingling spicy burn. Not for everyone and probably not the ideal sipping rum but has its place on an enthusiasts bar shelf for more adventurous drinkers or mixologists.

Drinking it neat, without ice. Fruity nose and strong woody taste. Warming without burning. Looooong taste. Great rum

Very spirit forward on the mouth and finish. Needs a bit more balancing, probably works better in cocktails than straight.

Nose: Not much flavor to pick, definitely fruits, spices and sweetnes. Taste: Here it is much more transparent than nose. You can taste the fruitiness and aparent sweetness rounded with just a tad little hint of wood. Very pleasant taste which is less sweet than the reserva exclusiva which is a bit too much sweetness for my taste. Finish is short to medium long and you can feel the pleasant fruity tones with just a little oak on your tongue for the remainder of the aftertaste. You cannot go wrong with this one if on budget. Highly recommended as a better option than its ,,older,, brother.

very pleasant rum, classic Latin American but by its pot-still share also comes quite strong and holds its own well in cocktails!

half scherp, niet speciaal

Leicht sprittig und wenig komplex, an der Nase wie im Geschmack. Es überwiegt die Holznote trotz süßem Auftakt. Die starke Rosinennote des großen Bruders ist hier nur minimal zu vernehmen.

Tasted less sweet than the smell. Added water and went way bitter. Prefer neat.

Très suave. Liquoreux.

Der glattgebügelte Schwiegersohn. Zu wenige Kanten um wirklich Charakter zu haben, nicht verarbeitet genug um den Pantschepeter zugeschoben zu bekommen. Schokolade, Holz und Vanille in der Nase, aber eben nicht auf übertriebene Art und Weise. Pur setzt sich das genau so fort. Süß aber nicht verzuckert, sonst aber halt recht charakterlos. Preis-/Leistung für's Supermarktregal gut, aber irgendwie ist diese Pulle die Definition der Durchschnittlichkeit.

Really impressed. Got a sugar cookie right out of the first sip. Complexity.

Genossen mit einem Espresso und einer MyFather La Promesa, war eine schöne Kombination.

Ein leicht bräunlicher Bronzeton im Glas. In der Nase eine leichte Süße und Schärfe, etwas fruchtig. Ein leicht süßer Geschmack, etwas bitter im ersten Abgang, später dann trocken. Der Nachklang ist recht lange und angenehm.
