This is a great Zacapa. Much better than the 23. It's more matured, more intensive and heavier.
It's between the old Zacapas and the XO. It's not as balanced as XO, but it's very intensive .
The taste is like a sweetened Ron Botran 1893 because of the mandarine. There also the typical Zacapa herbs. It's a good edition, I like it very much.

Smell: oak, caramel, date, mandarine, some herbs, dry fruits (plum), some smoke
Taste: caramel, barrel/wood, dry fruits, tropical fruits, some herbs
Finish: spice, date, wood and some smoke

Sweetness: 3/5
Spice: 3/5
Fruits: 3/5
Mildness: 3.5/5
Value (47€): 4/5
Experience level: professional

My top 10 Zacapas:
Aniversario 30
Zacapa XO
Edition Negra
Royal (too expensive)
Limitada 2019
Zacapa 23

Compared to "Zacapa Etiquette negra" I the Edition Negra is more smoky and spicy .
this rum is also very harmonious and has the typical Zacapa caramel flavors .

Im Vergleich zum Etiqueta negra empfinde ich den Edition Negra rauchiger und auch würziger.
Auch dieser Rum ist sehr harmonisch und hat die typischen Zacapa Karamell-Aromen.

Aromas of toffee, cinnamon and smokey oak; the palate boasts flavours of apple pie, vanilla bean and citrus; medium-bodied and a light burn with a moderate finish. $110 at LCBO is overpriced.

A good smooth rum. It is very similar to the original with extra char and ash on the finish. I prefer the regular 23 solera. This rum is an 8 but i down graded it to a 7 because of the price.

Nice smell and taste full of chocolate and smoke. Very complex with long aftertaste. Much better than Zacapa 23y but still under Zacapa XO.

Lots going on here, great sipper. Really like it. Much better than the regular 23 Solera

This has all the good stuff from the 23 with more on top. More alcohol burn but so much more complexity. Smokey, oaky and delicious. The flavours stay in your mouth and develop for ages. Let it sit in the glass for a few minutes for optimum enjoyment.

Rich caramel color, sweet nose, smoky and sweet flavor. This rum has a bit of a bite at the end and a lingering flavor, but solid flavor profile. Probably best served neat or on the rocks.

While the Zacapa solera 23 I find to be amazing, the negra is just too overpowered with smokey flavour and over priced. I'm going to be sticking to the solera 23.

Taste is ok
Aftertaste bit smoke
Not my type of rum

Great aroma with a smooth, lingering taste that doesn’t disappoint. A bit sweet at the onset which keeps this from being rated higher but the flavors come through in the end. Dark color helps to make this a total package of sight, smell, and taste. Another great edition to my collection.
