Vanilla smoky caramel rich nose. Rich vanilla sweet smoky oaky start and body. Abvish but it fades out. Spicy and classic Zacapa caramel. Richer then RZ 23 but less smooth then XO. The taste develops long after first sip and became more round and gentle... at the very end balanced vanilla smoky chocolate sweetness caramel...

Inte helt i min smak, rökig, något starkare än vanligt, föredrar den lenare stilen.

Perhaps a little more similar to a very smooth whiskey the smoky flavor is prevalent and very tasty. An excellent drink.

This is good! Dark and flavory with much oak and some vanilla. Lovely to the nose. A little alcohol at first but it dissapears fast in the sweetness. An upgraded 23 solera. If you like the 23 solera you will love this one. Very nice!

Zacapa rom startede jeg ud med som romdrikker, som mange andre i DK, har prøvet nogle stykker nu og bliver næsten skuffet hver gang. Meget andet derude der er bedre til lavere pris

When you want a variation. Aged in double charred American oak casks. The bite is too much for some. It does have some leather and tobacco overtones from the double char. Good smoke on a good rum.

Superbly tasty, very strong tobacco notes, and not as sweet as the standard Zacapa 23. Quite a unique flavour amongst rums and worth trying, but I’d probably still take the standard 23 at the same price point.

Nose: nice scent of oak and some smoke. More intense than the Zacapa XO
Palate: very woody and a bit smoky, some chocolate too. Aromatic, some interesting roughness, full, long lasting taste.
Probably the most ‚barrique‘ rum I‘ve tasted so far. But also some unnecessary harshness. A bit more interresting than the Zacapa XO.

As others stated before: edition negra is not the same as etiqueta negra. I‘ve tasted etiqueta negra a few years ago, but, unfortunately, took no notes. So, no real comparsion possible for me.
I got the chance to buy my bottle of edition negra in a duty-free area. There, the price was okay, but the regular price is way too high. You can find lower-priced rums with even more complex and amazing aromes. Diageo is trying to beat the maximum out of the well known brand Zacapa. 35% cheaper would be the right place in the scale.

Zacapa: a name that is worth a million. Can it deliver on the expectations? In my humble opinion, I don't think that this limited / selected version of the Zacapa family of Rum is worth the extra buck that they charge. As a general remark, I like Zacapa, but I don't see much of a difference between this version and the Solera 23 (maybe a bit more oaky).
To the nose: oaky and I like that, slightly smoky, then sugar cane, it's a bit dry, some spices too and maybe a hint of lime. Reminds me of Solera 23, but this is much better, more complex.
Taste notes: ok, here it resembles much more to the Solera 23, seems pretty much the same, just the sugary notes get more intense, honey is abundant, oak is still there, some liquorice too, but there is nearly no dryness. The alcohol is almost disappeared... definitely not very long lasting.
As predictable, nearly no finish, negligible persistance.

Salon du Rhum Spa 2018 - très bon comme quoi c'est pas le plus cher le meilleur !

Robe foncée. Belle complexité. Un peu plus lourd que le Solera 23. Côté visqueux sur le tabac. Arôme de fumé très présent. On aime l'originalité.

Au nez il y a du caramel et un soupçon de fumée. Au goût il y a de la cassonade, bois, chocolat et bien plus... Et on termine avec une finale tout en finesse

Tomo Zacapa solera 23 hace muchos años y siento que la calidad ha menguado. Sin embargo el último año me regalaron el Edición Negra y me volví a enamorar de Zacapa, miel guatemalteca!

I have added this one instead of the original solera 23. I find it more interesting in the taste and sent.

Smoked wooden tones, spicy, bourbon. Caramel, sweet touch. Mild for me, full taste. Stronger. Nice one.

Dark amber color with notes of vanilla, banana and butterscotch.

Like the Title sasys, Its basically a smoky big brother to the zacapa 23, but not overwhelming.

Purchased a sample from Master of Malt.

Lovely sipping rum from Zacapa. Bags of coffee and cacao on the nose. The same in the mouth with hints of spice and oak.

too smoky and strong for me
I prefer other Zacapa editions

Nice smooth, delicious caramel. Looks sweet. Let’s taste it...

Wood! Don’t know how to explain this feeling, it looks like “very clean”, when you taste it. And after second you got this full of wood taste. Imagine clear waterfall coming from ground. Water is cold. And after that you got so strong oak taste.
I can’t say that this Rum is “super fantastic”, but it have some independence. This Rum is special, something different.

I give about 7,8 - 8,3

Förväntningar på denna var låg inför första gången jag provade den. Men oj så fel jag hade. Många som gillar whisky sägs gilla den här och jag är inte en whiskyfantast därav de låga förväntningarna. Men rökigheten som denna bjuder på är så perfekt och lagom att den placeras sig bland royalen. Royalen är dyrare absolut, och är bättre men denna får också en 9a pga att man får 3 av denna för priset av 1 royal.

A lot of barrels, like a mix of whiskey and rum, with good balance. A little too much whiskey to be really good
