Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
if you have a bottle for sale, I'll happily a trade a kidney for it. Just a fantastic rum.
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
Beautiful color but just a bit too much whiskey flavor borrowed into the rum for my taste. Definitely has a bit of spice. Mellows out pretty nicely over a block of ice.
I found this in a duty free shop airport coming back from Ft Lauderdale. I tried in the day after I got home and made my in-laws grab another bottle when they were coming through the airport later.
It's a smooth and tasty rum. I enjoy it straight up,, maybe with some whisky stones in the summer.
Well this is good, without a doubt. But its so silk-soft that its almost getting boring.
Nose: Nothing - so weak that I couldn't determine expression.
Taste: Silky soft, decent aftertaste where i could taste caramelized fruits (Banana and nuts).
This is a good rum, without doubt. And I could drink a lot of it, but it lacks a bit character in my opinion. With this prize-tag im comparing it to SFTC, and to that it is no match.
Had an amazing back-to-back tasting opportunity with the Zacapa White Label and Black Label. These are genuine 23 old rums and nothing to do with the current Solera aged Zacapa's. Price tag at close to EUR 500 per bottle is outrageous. Bottle and label design with the palm tree wrap is truly unique. Dark mahogany color. White Label is smoother and less smokier than the Black Label.
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 enjoy this rum, has a nice sweet aroma and taste. Very smooth to drink, had enjoy it. Would recommend to give it a try.
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.
Endnu en som skal være i din samling. Det er et mesterværk inden for rom, og en skam den er så dyr, som den nu er.
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
Dunkel goldene Farbe. Sehr weicher Abgang. Leicht süßlich mit fruchtiger Note. Sehr zu empfehlen.
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.
This rum is just not my style, it had too much whiskey flavour - which I don't quite like. I was disappointed, probably mainly because of high expectations. I gave almost full bottle to my friends which made them happy.
Nádherný základ, od ktorého sa dá merať kvalita iných rumov.
Introduced to this 20 years ago. Aleays pleased to find bars that carry it.
Nothing special on the smell, seems pretty average to me. The taste is also average nothing really special to report I'm not picking up anything in particular, just middle-of-the-road in my opinion
First time i rasten it i did not like it. Now it starts to grov on me.
Un très bon rhum qui mérite d'être goûté, peut être un peu cher.
Really a masterpiece. Sipper only, never mix with coke
This is a first for me. Guatemalan rum. I was pleasantly surprised but wanted to bring back a great rum from a recent cruise. I made the right choice. I paid $55 in St Maartin. It is well worth the price and the quality in an aged rum is there. I may have to move my rating to a nine.
Had the chance to sample this rum at a party. Normally too rich for my pocket book. This is the best I've had so far in my rum adventure. I can't imagine finding one that would be much better than this one. Of course I will keep looking. If this is the only rum I was allowed drink for the rest of my life than count me happy!! I will find a way to get more of this one. Beg, Borrow or Steal.
