Vol . : 40°
Solera Gran Reserva - 40 °. Smell - Rum very intense, sweet and delicate. Tropical fruit, vanilla, almond, caramel fudge and spicy notes. Palate - The initial perception of roundness and softness gives way to the fullness glicerinica and slightly sweet raw sugar, associated with dehydrated cherries, guava, pineapple, cinnamon, toasted hazelnuts and caramel, and, finally, to a feeling of sweetness, reminiscent of honey. Intense and exceptionally balanced, with a final very, very persistent. An aged rum surprisingly soft and sweet.

It is made using the concentrated first-pressing sugar cane juice—called "virgin sugar cane honey" by the company—and is aged and blended using the solera method traditionally used for sherries. This solera aging system is dynamic; as the blended rums pass through four different types of barrels, the last stage includes barrels that previously aged Pedro Ximenez, an intensely sweet, dark dessert sherry from Jerez, Spain. Nowadays, this process is overseen by master blender Lorena Vazquez. The company claims that part of their success lies in the fact that the barrels are stored 2,300 metres (7,500 ft) above sea level in an aging facility situated below the upper slopes of the mountains and volcanoes of Guatemala, with an average temperature of 62 °F (17 °C). After leaving the rum to age in these barrels they are put into large 20,000 liter American white oak casks for one more year and then finally bottled.
