Ron Zacapa 23 Solera Rum was created in 1976 in the highlands of Guatemala, where it is distilled from fresh cane juice before aging at 7544 feet at 62 °F (17 °C).
The 500 year-old Spanish Sistema Solera method is used to age Ron Zacapa 23 in white oak casks. This results in a combination of rums aged between 6 and 23 years.
The current Ron Zacapa 23 bottle features a woven band around the middle, which is in reference to the original hand woven palm leaf petate bottle cover that covered the bottle.
This was the first rum that got me into sipping. I used to just drink rum and cokes, and never got into sipping rum. This was recommended to me by a friend, and it was great. This is what got me into rum, good price, great smooth taste. Its on the sweeter side, which i prefer something a little bit more rich in flavor.
First introduced to itvin my local. It has some sweetness to it ( if you don't mind that) but the taste is exquisite. Always have a bottle at home.
Makes a fantastic MaiTai when paired with Appleton Estates and Pierre Ferrand Curacao. but not a great sipper. Too sweet and based on the other reviews, it's because they and sugar. I'll stick to it mixed.
This is a deception in plain rule. Yes, it tastes good, because of additions, sugar (38 g/l) and God knows what. They age it above the clouds to make impossible for common people to know how many intrigues are in this bottle. 23 years solera... ahahah, 23 years my a**! Just the branding has seen the number 23, trust me. Commercial and even expensive as f**k!
Well This is my go to everyday rum. I enjoy its caramel sweetness ang taste. However as my rum journey has depend so has my understanding and its lack of purity is a shame. Labeld correctly I would give it a 8, pulled down a bit due to its marketing gimmickry. (Do note that they are not the only brand to do this) However. If you are a starter on your rum lovers journey this to me is a necessary stop on the way :-)
This blew me away and I have hardly found another rum or other drink that I love as much as this. Sometimes I don't even add ice cubes to it.
Bought this after reading great reviews from various sources and have to say I was disappointed. This is not a terrible rum but it isn't outstanding either. Considering how much this is promoted and the price I prefer Kaniche XO or El Pasador easily over this. I always drink it on the rocks and it seems that first taste bites every time. I've moved on from this rum.
It’s got a silky feeling to it, and a good introduction to sipping rums that folks seem comfortable with, so that’s good for the whole culture, but i don’t see it as the “gold standard” that its revered as.
I never liked rums, but his one got me to that and remains my personal
love. IMHO best price to taste ratio. Very smooth, not too sweet My father in law it declared as best spirit he had in life. Even if Indrift off to try other runs, it always amazes me how good it is when I return...
I'm surprised that some say this is too sweet. I would say this is exactly the sweetness a rum drinker would expect.
Very smooth sipping, becomes even smoother with an ice cube that releases even more fruitiness.
Bottle with weave around it is a nice touch to presentation.
Had read alot of promising reviews about this bottle but the flavor wasn't in my taste.
I find it hard to pin point what I don't like about this rum, I guess it's the blend of it all, just don't sit well with me.
