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.
Recommendable to most
Yes, it’s back sweetened. Yes it is very sweet. No the age statement is not misleading (unless you’re uneducated). This rum is however delicious to drink either straight in a glencairn or over a large ice cube. There is a lot of nuance to the flavor beyond the sweetness. Don’t be ashamed if you like it. It is very good. Ignore the gate keepers.
Got one from my friends for a promotion that I've earned. Kept one year in the cabinet. Then finally tested and emptied within one night. I must say that for me truly fantastic :). Smooth, not to sweet, and no too bitter just perfect. Great sipper! Surely something worth returning to. In terms of aroma... gently woody not that sharp as for instance Abuelo Double Oaks
Those 3 words in my title tell it all. Of course when you sip this rum you find it easy to drink and enjoyable. But an old rum is not supposed to be that sweet. For that price you should consider buyin a REAL aged rum. If you have other choices, you can skip this rum.
The very first rum a have tried, and fell in love with rum drinking. Always a special one for me. Prof that you dont have to spend a fortune for excelent drink.
