Ich bin positiv überrascht! Warum den Standard-Botucal trinken, wenn dieser sehr ähnlich ist und deutlich weniger süß? Die Nase ist nicht sehr komplex, aber gut. Mir schießt da zuerst Kirschkaugummi mit Schokokaramel in den Kopf. Im Mund dominiert Holz mit Frucht und Karamell. Die überwältigende Süße des Reserva Exclusiva bleibt hier bei dem 8y aus. Könnte etwas runder sein im Mund und auch intensiver, aber für den Preis total in Ordnung. Ist schließlich ein junger 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.

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

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

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.

mal nicht süß, durchaus ansprechend für den Preis. Schöne Abwechslung!

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.

Mal auf gut Glück im Supermarkt gekauft, da relativ günstig und ich den Botucal mag. Flasche auch ganz nett im Regal in der Sammlung anzuschauen. Aber hat mir nicht geschmeckt. Wird vermutlich zumeist in Cola landen.
