The solera system Botran uses combines and blends older and younger rums into a variety of oak whiskey barrels, re-charred oak whiskey barrels, sherry and port barrels. This allows the distillate to take on the flavors of the barrels in which they are aged. A portion of the final blend is bottled and the remaining older rum is later blended with younger rum in the future.
The rums in the blend range from 5 to 18 years and the solera process of aging has really don its job well giving us a well rounded and elegant rum. ;o)
