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.

Ron Zacapa 23
It's been done to death and we've all tried it so I will try to keep this short and sweet.
This rum is the rum that you recommend to people who are new to premium/semi premium rums.
It is on the sweet side but its got a decent amount of depth, flavour and spice and developing complexity to it. I enjoy taking a bottle of this to parties where I know people will put just a wee bit of effort into making nice drinks with nice ingredients or if I want to buy someone a nice gift or if I am gonna get a wee bit on the smashed side but will be with good mates doing it properly.
It's a decent rum, my biggest beef with this rum (or brand) is that they have been continuously pushing the price up and its starting to get to the price point they are frankly head to heading with rums which are genuinely premiums and they have no business competing with.
A bottle of this should never cost more than 90 or 100 dollars AUD/NZ past that and they are taking the piss and I as a consumer will skip over them.
I love the mouth feel of this rum. Nice both neat and over ice. A little pricey in my area but I’ll splurge for a rum like this occasionally. Very nice with a Drew Estate’s dirty rat.
I got this as a gift from my wife for Valentine's Day. It was my first introduction to Quality sipping rum, and I've loved it. Ever since then it's the one I go to when I want to kick back and relax
I tried this rum a few years back before I new rum could be really good. It was smooth, sweet, complex, and made me happy happy.
I grabbed a bottle of this on sale when I was away and really liked it. I like sweet rums and it finished sweet. It was decent by itself or on the rocks with lime. It blended well with ginger beer. But after I read how its a mixture of ages and not truly as old and sweetening it to get the finish you want, left me feeling dirty. I liked this rum, it was good; but feel like it 's a little deceptive marketing.
