Truly a fantastic choice
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.
Bottle: Upper-average, special looks
Nose: Not so distinctive, mild Zacapa like
Body: wooden,sweet, vanilla
Tail: this is the best on this one - very nice one, provocative
This one is more raw than common Zacapa 23yo, limited edition with punch of wooden barrel.
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.
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.
Nowadays it is hard to find this rum for a good price.
It's an overproof rum with 45% alc. Its flavour is amazing, gives you the Zacapa feelings with a very special and long afterburn. One of my most favourites.
