Now this is some good stuff
Having already tested the 23 solera and the XO, I wanted to see the work on the series of reserva limitada. I begin with the youngest of 2015. We find chocolate caramel and coffee with a very present almond and vanilla all subtlety. very sweet and quite complex it seems from rum to a pastry overall rating but with a floral lightness. A long finish. We feel that special attention was placed on the assembly work which makes me want to taste the 2013 & 2014.
You feel imidiat boost and it's really feels that it is stronger then the 23 year one. This is amoung the best Zacapa for me so far. Rich in flovours and long aftertaste.
This Reserva Limitada 2015 is cleearly more complex and pleasant than the 23 years !
With its nice dark amber colors, it really sticks to the glass which sometimes means there is too much sugar but not this time. The first sip is a little bit sharp but it gets better and better and better ...
This Limitada 2015 is more fruity than its 23y cousin. In addition to fruit aromas, you will also find vanilla and a nice smokey taste. I really had a good moment tasting this Zacapa Reserva Limitada 2015. I'm looking forward to find samples of older version now !
I find this rum very pleasant. A bit anonymous to the nose, with a sharp alcohol scent, but the taste literally explodes in your mouth. First impression is a lot of fruit taste, dates? Dried plum? and then a very nice after touch of almond. Sweet with smooth caramel sugar cane taste, and that familiar touch of smoke we know from the ordinary Zacapa 23 solera. Much better though and bordering to a nine... We'll see, I might change my score after a few more tastings... And so I did. Bumped this one up from 8 to a 9.
Inzwischen für mich leider nur ein Cola-Rum, das bedeutet er enthält soviel Zucker wie Cola....
Gut, das ist ungerecht, dieser enthält nur halb soviel Zucker wie Cola.
Aroma is typical Zacapa. Taste is full fruity and sweet. Not so much wooden like other Limited vrsions. Aftertaste is longer and nice with sherty tones but bit less sherry than 2019.
