What a smoky rum! Apart from the obvious fact that this will go perfectly in a Dark and Stormy, as a sipping rum this hits all the right notes while providing a novel approach to rum flavors with that smoky quality.
I have tried the Zacapa 23 and this one is a bit darker, less sweet, and smokier. For now I am rating it the same as I would the Zacapa 23 (from memory) and once I get a bottle of Zacapa 23, then I will know.
Nose - Smoky, oak, chocolate
Palate - Cinnamon, Smoke, Toasted Coconut
Feels good going down with a clean finish.
Truly a great blending of flavors that deliver then appropriately exit.
I've been waiting for years to find a bottle of Negra as I'm a fan of the 23, smokey fruity goodness. Benefits greatly being left in the glass for awhile
Love this rum. It has a nice fruity complexity with some really nice charred under tones, very subtle smokeyness. I think it would be interesting to see what could be done with a longer ageing and how it would taste cask if it was stronger like 50 Abv.
Had this one during the corona lockdown with my Friends. Must say this is not the best Zacapa I had. To me it's a bit to harsh. The smokey taste is to overwhelming and it has an aftertaste which I don't like. The taste has more oak to it than the original 23 years Zacapa and it doesn't work for me! Something personal!
