Nice to chat with the very lovely Jonathan who is a very passionate brand ambassador for Botran. Also great to meet Jesus Morasso, Botran Director Europe.
Had a nice tasting of the white and 18yo
Creamy white rum. Very smooth and dry but not a huge flavour profile. I’m not a lover of white rum as I prefer rums to be neat. To be fair this is a good offering.
Lots of caramel and vanilla and very light oak. A little sweet but some delicate spice to balance it and a long finish.

A lover of rums, especially British-style from countries such as Jamaica and Barbados.
Rum ambassador. Reviews. Rum opinions. Rum advice. Rum news. Rum chat. Rum discussion.
My first rum was Appleton and that is generally the benchmark I use for comparing rums along with Foursquare. My collection now has (in 2022) over 600 different rums and that number is continually growing.
I am an advocate of the Gargano rum re-categorisation.
As well as rum, I am a big Liverpool fan (and season ticket holder) and love Pet Shop Boys (hence the blog name) as well as having a cute cocker spaniel.
I have a Level 1 WSET qualification in Spirits, Level 2 with Distinction and a level 1 WSET wine qualification.
