Hated to tell my friend I didn’t like it, especially when I found it it’s more expensive than Solare 23 (which I’m not fond of either). I just plain did not like the flavor. Will likely give it a go again but not soon.

Very sweet...not tasting any cask or aging barrel. Just a true rum flavor with a very light alcohol after taste. If you are a sweet rum fan this is about as good as it gets. If you like the heavy more distinct flavors of oak aged rums this will not do it for you. Truly not a big difference between this and Ron Zacapa 23. I like it!

Dark good looking colour on this one. Nose: coffee, dark chocolate and burnt sugar. Palate: coffee, cacao and brown sugar.

I have a particular fondness for the Zacapa rums and the XO is one of my favorites. The 23 is my go to daily sipper but the edicionl negra is in interesting change of pace. The flavor profile is more complex and more intense on my palate. I find that the smokiness stands up really well when I'm enjoying the rum with a cigar.

This rum has a strong smokey taste. I like this rum more than the solera 23.

Very intriguing rum. As soon as I open the bottle you could smell the rich oak and spices. I personally feel this to be more of a very good spiced rum. I also personally find I can only really enjoy this neat in small amount or mixed with coke. Very strong oak and smoke after taste. I really enjoy this rum!!

It is different than the standard Ron Zacapa 23 Solera. Different enough to make it worth finding a bottle and trying.
I don't find it quite as sweet which can be a nice change.

A rum I hadn't seen before grabbed in duty free. I was a little surprised when I opened it, it wasn't appealing and I didn't like it at all. It was harsh and rough, but has since, over time grown on me. Still not my favourite or even close but I will enjoy finishing the bottle!

Après avoir testé le 23 ans j ai reçu celui-ci en cadeau.
Amateur de rhums doux et riches j ai aimé.
Je trouve que l alcool ressort un peu moins que sur le 23 ans et il est bon tout du long.
Je trouve qu il a un côté très fumé.

The nose is definitely rum. The colour is dark, red, unusual. Back to the nose... Smokey. That's weird, in a rum. But it still smells like a delicious rum. Maybe not as sweet... Smells like a Zacapa. But with smoke. What's with that?

Then on the tongue. Immediately there's the classic Zacapa taste. Caramel, oak, slight vanilla. Smooth. Then the smoke shows up. So unusual in a rum. Still some bite, but ... it begs to be inhaled. Nose in the glass. I just can't help myself. The aroma, so inviting.
I could sit an inhale the wonderful aroma of this rum all night. Except..
No I can't. I need to keep sipping it.

Such a unique rum. If the opportunity arises, you must taste this. Not the best run I've ever tasted, but it really stands out, definitely worth tracking down.
