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.
Glimrende rom. Dog ikke min top 3. Men en dejlig krydret rom.
This is a go to when in doubt
This was the first Solera rum I had ever tried and it led me to try others which I’ve also loved
This is the perfect sipping rum! Can't stop drinking it with our without a good cigar!
My basic rum. A little heavy and sweet, but always good.
Good nice rum. Good taste, not smokey. I liked it.
Tenhle rum je velké zklamání. Nezajímavá chuť dřeva s příšerným lihovým ocasem.
Toller Rum, Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis in der 1-Liter-Flasche.
Für meinen Geschmack schon minimal zu herb und im Nachgeschmack nicht sonderlich stark. Aber Geruch, Farbe und Geschmack sind toll.
In my opinion the only drawback is the price, to expensive. But again, good taste!
I dont like the taste. I drank a lot of better rums.
Unbelievable for the price, would highly recommend
I think this rum is a little bit overrated. It is definitely a good sipping rum but for the price of about 55€ I have expected a bit more (fortunately I could buy it on sale for 30% off). When pouring it into a nosing glass it first smells for me a bit like turpentine. This goes away after some minutes. Then you can smell a bit of vanilla and toffee. It is smooth without alcoholic sharpness. You can't do anything wrong with it, it is drinkable every day and it is a good and sweet rum. If it is worth it's price, I don't know.
This rum is extremely smoothe and tastes best on the rocks. It doesn't have a harsh burn or after taste.
Always have on hand. Have converted a couple friends to this stuff
This has a ton of dosage and I'd never recommend it to anyone even as a "starter rum". Having said that, when smoking a cigar I tend to enjoy them with a cocktail so I do like the sweetness of this and the smoke of a cigar.
Good rum, I was expecting a bit more based on the price and on other reviews, but still not bad. Not too sweet, not too strong.
Ron Zacapa 23 is a really nice rum. This is the rum, which brought me into the rum drinking hobby. And so for that I'm very grateful. But my taste preferences changed a bit...
This rum is pretty much Santa Teresa with added sugar. I thought about giving it the same score (9), but the more I thought about it, the more I realized the added sugar hinders the overall experience. It's not too sweet (looking at you Diplomatico Reserva), but still I find the sweetness a bit distracting. On the other hand, I also like sweeter rums from time to time and so do many people. It's a quality rum with just the right touch of complexity.
I recommend this rum to anyone just starting in rum drinking or just looking for a sweetened (but not too sweet) and interesting rum. A really nice product.
Nose: Medium sweet, nice aroma, too alcoholic.
Sorry but I don’t know why this rum is so much expensive. Too much alcohol is feeling.
Lots of dark chocolate and vanilla.
Oaky finish. Great with a less sweet dark chocolate.
As first i feel a bit disappointed. This rum have high notes, and worst opinion said, it is too sweet...
it is not sweet at all. It is dry rum, but it is really smooth. Nose can feel few things - fruits, sweeties, vanilla and a bit of alcohol. There is some special tabac taste on tongue, there is barrel taste, a little cherry at finish. Sometimes u can catch coffee taste. Finish is Not long enough. Maybe thats why you need another glass :) I guess there is too much of 6 years old rum inside, because balance are changing after 3 glass. It needs more vol. like 43% or sth. In general i do recommend this rum, because this is good choice for all labels at this price. This will be tasty for most people.
for me one of the top rums I have had so far, newetherless this became the go to rum brand in my region.
Great taste, smooth, well priced, a favorite amongst my friends.
Por eso mi calificación, podría haberle dado un 8 pero lo que cuesta es para algo más, tiene esos 40 grados y muchos tonos de sabor, este desde luego es un desperdicio mezclarlo son 39'90€ lo que me costó.
