Default Ron Botran Solera 1893

This might be old news to this forum, but in case it is not, if you are fans of this rum in the tear drop decanter, I wanted to let you know it will not be available any more. The company has changed the blend, and it is different that the original. All Botran rums will be in new bottles and labels. The new blend is a little lighter, a touch sweeter, and the company wanted to make it more palatable to a broader market. It will still say Solera 1893 on the bottle. I ahve tasted the new blend, and it is a very good rum, but I prefer the original. I just picked up the last two bottles here in Orlando. So, if you like it and can get it, grab it!
Rum is the answer. What was the question?

Sad to hear.

I found it more than light and sweet enough already!
