Truly a fantastic choice
Nothing more to be said that hasn't already been said a million times about this legendary bottle. My title sums it up.
This is a very very VERY good rum. One of my top 3 all time I have been able to enjoy. Don't hesitate to try it should the chance ever present itself!
In depth review not needed. Just drink it. Cannot be put into words accurately.
A Zacapa that is better then the XO.. This one is more intense and darker then it´s little brother the XO.. The XO is perfect.. But this one is better..
This is a great rum. It is substantially better than the Zacapa XO and on par with the Straight from the Cask, imho, but just a tad less sweet.
Has a nice sweetness to it with caramel, marzipan, oak, and sherry. Again, an exceptional rum!
Et fantastisk møde!
Super lækker fyldig og sødlig duft.
Samgen, lidt bedre / lidt mere end af den samme gl. lillebror 25 års.
Fantastic rum, especially for Zacapa and sweet rum lovers.
The rum is heavy, rich, intensive, you can tell its maturity.
You immediately notice that it's a Zacapa, but a really old one.
The nose is rich, intensive, matured and sweet. I get caramel, dried fruits like figs, plums, then burned sugar and the typical Zacapa herbs. The toasted cask is also there, this one is so saturated and rich. The most matured Zacapa of all time.
The taste is also very saturated. It starts with caramel, figs, dates, plums, burnt sugar, herbs. Woah, so damn tasty. Then toasted barrel adds more heavy aromas to this matured rum. This one does not appear thin or diluted, just very saturated and intensive.
There is no comparison to the Zacapa 23, it's too young, a little bit harsh, has more alcohol taste and has no toasted cask aroma. I think the finish in barrels of cognac adds some further flavors.
I like especially the dates in this version in combination with sweetened wood barrels.
Aniversario is also heavier than Zacapa XO, you can simply taste the age of this rum.
I would rate this one with 97 points. This is a legend for sweet rum lovers.
Profile: sweet, saturated with caramel, dry fruits (dates, figs), toasted barrel
I think in a few years people would pay $500 for a bottle of it. There is simply not much left on the market. If you can't afford it, go for Zacapa Edition Negra to get an idea of Aniversario 30.
Smell: dried fruit (plum, date, fig), caramel, burnt sugar, toasted cask, sweetness, herbs, wood.
Taste: caramel, lots of dried fruit (fig, date), herbs, burnt sugar, sweetness, toasted cask, some spice.
Finish: long finish, fruits (date), caramel
Value (2019 -> 250€): 3.5/5
Value (2020 -> 350€): 3.5/5
eun richtig guter alter Zacapa,harmonisch ,langer Abgang,sanft,eine Aromenbombe.
Im Riedelkoffer ein wunderschönes Sammelobjekt welches vermutlich in einigen Jahren Preise im 1000 Euro Bereich sehen wird.Ein Weltklasse Rum den es wohl so nicht mehr geben wird.Für mich nur durch den black Label zu Toppen.
