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 800 per bottle for the Black Label is outrageous. Bottle and label design with the palm tree wrap is truly unique. Dark mahogany color. Black Label is spicier and smokier than the White Label.
This old bottling has nothing to do with the taste of today's bottling as it really still goes in the fruity direction. The sweetness is fantastically balanced and does not dominate the rum and the subtle spices make this bottling even more complex. That makes you want more
To my great regret, i currently only have one bottle which i would like to never finish, for me this rum is exquisite, with "body" and slightly sweet, with a very pleasant smell. It's an extremely balanced rum.
Muy a mi pesar actualmente solo tengo una botella la cual quisiera que jamás se termine, para mí este ron es exquisito, con "cuerpo" y ligeramente dulce, de olor muy agradable. Es un ron sumamente equilibrado.
The best rum of the world, So excited, Is a personal collection from Madrid, Spain.
the bottle of Zacapa black label old version y very rare and exclusive rum
i had try a lot of rums and all Zacapas they have ever produced,this is the best.a extremly long and perfect aftertaste,a nice sweetnes but not to much and a wonderfull flavor bomb.For me better then the legendary Eldorado 25 years 1980 an this ron is one of rhe best. the original price arround 70 Euro was a joke and the current price in ebay between 300 and 350 Euro is cheap for this century ron.I think in some years we will see a price from 1000 Euro and more.
Easy, smooth and sweet rum. Great for everyone who likes it sweet with a nice finish. A great start to get people interested in rum.
The black label has a slightly more complex taste than the regular edition, but I'd say the difference is minimal and if the price difference is big at your retailer, the black label probably isn't worth the higher price.
Black Label (full bast), fat and sweet! Caramel and dried fignies are my first taste impressions.It balances in a way that makes the angels sing, actually its hard to believe its 40% alcohol u are sipping to. What one could easy misjudge as a lack of character is in fact just a rum in truely magnificant balance! This is pure gold, and I could drink a lot of it if it wasn't for the price tag.
Smooth and sweet. You can smell the rich dark flavor when u crack the bottle. The first sip had a hint just a hint of a stronger drink...maybe a whiskey barrel was used to age this bottle. Very much worth the affordable $50 price tag.
