This is the original bottling of the 23 years old and isn't SOLERA method, but the old method, only 23 years oaks ( same method used for whisky) is out of production by many years...... the new products are only solera method and the bottle has a straw stripe
I have tasting !! Lovely
I just received theseFour bottles of zacapa 23 old version, made with palm leaves, is a treasure. I'm excited
The true Zacapa 23 year old! If only more people could experience it, they would never touch the solera that replaced it. Just enough sweet with delicious notes.
It's dark colour, elusively smooth aroma that hints slightly at spice and caramel does little to prepare you for how smooth this goes down. I could just stick a straw in the bottle. There is no indication that you are consuming "burning" alcohol. The taste is sweet to start, but not overly so, flavours of banana, caramel, but then turning dry leaving slight wood taste behind. There's a reason why Zacapa is such a well known name.
I'm 42 years old and have been a rum lover most of my life. However, I have a very cheap taste and usually just drink Bacardi Silver and diet soda. I'm no connoisseur and aside from a floater in a frozen Pina Colada don't really enjoy dark rum of any kind, regardless of the origin. That being said, I came across this rum via a single shot glass bottle that my parents had in their liquor cabinet, likely from some event years ago that was never consumed. I can tell you without any hesitation that I am hoooked. This rum is a wet dream in a bottle. If you like rum and don't give this a try, you're totally missing out. I'd pay double what this costs. I've never tasted anything like it. Although, I must confess, I feel sacrilegious by combining it with Diet Pepsi. On my honor as a man, try this - you will be happily surprised.
