Recommendable to most
One of my first rums I tasted, after passing by Bacardi and Havana Club stuff and looking for something different. Caramel, vanilla, coffee, notes of wood. Made me curious for mire.. and so I started reading, bought some books, and a new passion was born..
15 year Solera - it's a blend where the oldest rum used is 15, average probably 6-7 years.
Unmistakably the same stable.
Glass: Amber colour, moderate aroma
Nose: Caramel, dried fruit
Mouth: Sharper than the older brother, but in a good way - better balance for the sweetness. Pleasant dried fruit and caramel.
Burn: Initial sharpness mellows - a very nice rum
I can see how some rate this higher than the 23, but that is a matter of taste.
Guter Einsteigerrum, süss und relativ mild, Schokolade, Vanille, Karamell und ein wenig Nuss, zwischendurch ein wenig würzig und scharf. Guter Rum, lässt aber noch viel luft noch oben.
Great nose, smooth in mouth. Caramel, vanilla, light café that make for very nice, easy to drink and affordable drink. Lack a bit of ending in my opinion. Still a distance to the Solera 23 and of course very far from the XO.
this rum isnt produced anymore. it has the typical guatemala notes, with a spicy sharpness. pineapple, lemongrass. too much sweetness.
Ron Zacapa 15 Solera Reserva. Oranges. It's what hits you first on the nose. As I type, before I can even taste, I can smell oranges. There's also a hint of honey and allspice. Very pleasant indeed. On the pallet, it hits you as sweet, but then spicy and dry. It lacks the rich flavor of it's older brother Zacapa 23. Yet it is still pleasant with slight caramel and almond notes. It finishes clean with no burn in the throat, yet leaves a sharpness behind, like a weak hot sauce, but without the vinegar. 8 out of 10. A fine Rum, but not extrodinary.
