Now this is some good stuff
Initial warm flavour of molasses and caramel, but soon after a sharp cut of alcohol. Not a favorite. Maybe my bottle was blended down with a very much earlier batch. 23 is not the total number of years aged with this rum. The 23 year aged is definitely cut with younger spirits. I'll stay away from this brand from now on.
For all the grand reviews and all the prestige, this was kind of disappointing. Nose has some oakiness and brown sugar, taste has a sweet woodiness. Molasses emerges on the finish with something reminiscent of a dryer sheet. Over all, the components are fine, there's nothing offensive here, but this rum feels really weak. There's no power behind, no punch to pack, it's just kind of there. When it comes to old, aged rums, I want a full experience, and this one just didn't deliver.
I had this rum straight and it's quite nice. Enjoyed this vanilla flavour, sweet rum with strong oakey notes. Caramel smell, with sweet vanilla taste and oakey aftertaste. A no brainer for all whiskey lovers, but for me it took a few sips before I feel in love. Great rum, but I'd prefer a bit less oakey notes.
This is Absolutly Stunning Stuff i´ve ever tried. The Price some years ago about $ 50.-. Today: $ 450 and more.
I am happy to have one in case.
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.
One of the best wich I have tested. Absolutely soft, much flower, women's rum (woman sommelier). Very tasty, difficult and hard
Bought two cases of this in Miami years ago after trying it without any experience in the rum world. I’m down to one bottle that I’m saving for a special occasion.
on first taste - standard but then you realize that the taste is mor emild than the other rums have and the taste is in the mouth even after ten of minutes
