Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Well that was some good stuff. But its quite strong and may not be for everyone.
This is really something Special. Was proud owner of a bottle, now it's empty... time to organise the next one :-) one of the best rums i had - all time - no nonse great taste keeps your mouth busy for 5 minutes.
Unique experience. Bottle somehow does not reflect this uniqueness. Smooth and balanced nose. Single cask with a delicate taste of sweet and smooth sensation.
Toffee, spice, sugarcane, honey, sherry, and oak. A very nice rum; similar to the Zacapa 30, but just a tad sweeter and stronger.
Endelig har RZ ramt plet. Den er som en rom skal være i følge mig. Utrolig kraft og krydderier i smagen.
Super duft, super fed i konsisten. Smagen er fantastisk, sød, behagelig og mangfoldige. Man kan godt smage Zacapa familien.
The nose is full and sweet with clear notes of figs, vanilla, marzipan and barrel. After it's been breathing a bit in the glass there's aloso cherry notes emerging. The palette offers a big, clear sweetness composed of cherry, marzipan and candied figs with a long, lightly spicy and sweet, fruity finish. I had high hopes for this rum as everyone rates it highly.
Though it's good and very special, I find it perhaps a bit to sweet and one glass is enough for me.
This is one of my top 5 rum. Simply a Perfect rum.
This is a wonderfull experience, and so much better than the solera edition. Now I understand why Zacapa has that history of rum they have!!
Nose : I find Vanilla, honey, spices and sweet dessert. The smell of this rum is very complex and delicious!!
Taste : I find, vanilla, brown sugar, molasses, complex, power, and the aftertaste is powerfull wrapped in lovely sweetness, and it just hangs in the mouth for a loooooong time.
Well balanced with great taste and great balance. The best rum I've tasted so far.
Solera 23 je klasika, ale tahle verze je ještě lepší (i oproti verzi Etiqueta Negra).
This not like the 23 solera edition..!!
Perfect rum in my head, sweet, spicy and a great power and balance
Buy it if you find it, very rich in the nose, molasses, orange peel, vanilla, oak.
Mouth so complex and smooth, sweet yet very spicy and so much more than the 23 solera.
Aftertaste is long and so balanced and just keep on coming.
Ron zacapa 23 years is a magnificent rum , perhaps the best solera I know, but "straight from the cask".... oh man this is something else! The alcohol is more from the normal edition as I can see from the label. From the dottle you are suspicious about the content. I can see the signature of master blender, the bottle series number, also the trademark of zacapa straw bracelet is darker and has better quality from the ordinary. In the snifter glass I can see the darker color and the full body of the spirit, now my first impression that is something else from the ordinary is confirmed as I give some time to the spirit to bring all the aromas up. I can see in the nose melassa, walnut cream, dried fruits, I proceed in the mouth and I feel in my mouth the full body of the drink, honey, walnut cream,coffee, banana, cloves,in the end my tongue has vanilla ice cream. Even when I drink the sample my mouth had the taste about 12 seconds after! Enormous rum, I tried ron zacapa xo, 23 , nothing compares with this treasure! Worth every penny.
A piece of history, lots of power with a delicate sweetness and softness. This Rum has it all.
perfekt balanceret, en flaske man må eje
Er man heldig og støde på denne, kan man forvente en spændende oplevelse.
Meget speciel smag, som jeg synes skifter hvis man lade den stå i glasset lidt.
God duft og smag med en del power bag, en rom man skal lære at nyde.
And I've just finished my bottle. Gutted. Cask Strength 45% bottled in 2005, great depth, complexity and sweetness. Have with an ice cube to dial down the strength a little and savour the flavour.
