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.
Smooth wonderful and very good taste, my favourite rum.
If you haven’t tried it yet pls do!
I have a handfull of all time favorites and this is one of them.
I love the sweet honey taste and can recommend this rum to anyone starting to drink rum.
Amazing, absolut amazing. Is sweet but it taste great and please never ruin it by mixing it with cola. This is a premium straight up rum.
Has a nice smell to it, does not taste like a rum that is super sweet. You know the ones, the ones that taste like syrup. This rum tastes like real rum. Simply the best Cuba libre I’ve ever had. It is a little pricey but I tell you, you will not regret it.
This is a great rum for sipping and for cocktails. It has a smooth finish with lots of depth. Vanilla and coffee notes to the taste. My favorite is putting it in an old fashioned with Angostura bitters and demarara syrup. So amazing!!!
This is my favourite rum. I don't sip a lot of rums straight but this one I enjoy.
Også en av mine favoritter, søt velbalansert og rund i kantene, må ikke blandes ut, nytes best i tulipanglass
Verdt å prøve👍
Nagyon karakteres, kellemes rum.... már csak egy jó szivar kell hozzá...
To me this rum has it all, sweetness of molasses, hint of oak and very smooth without being weak. Recommend to everyone and with a price of $44 where I live I put it well ahead of any comparable brandy or bourbon. I have tasted a better, but not many and nothing in that price range. When I introduce people to rum, this is what we taste last as the finale.
Sweet nectar of the gods! Molasses, cinnamon, dark sugar cane, every pleasant sweet flavor you can imagine is captured in this bottle. I like it better than the more expensive XO bottle. I've been enjoying a sip of this wonderful rum after dinner each night, and I sleep so well!
I am a major fan of Cruzan Single Barrel Rum. I tried the Ron Zacapa 15 at a friend's house and I was amazed. The Cruzan has more molasses in the nose, but the Zacapa had a richer flavor. I couldn't find the Zacapa 15, so I picked up the 23 Solera. Same result - not as much molasses in the nose, but richer tasting. Now I'd like to be able to compare it with the Zacapa 15. My friend likes the 15 better than the 23.
Very smooth Rum, Sweet and perfect to zip. One of my favorite. Great one!
I used to drive 4 hours to RI to buy it, I recommended it to a liquor store in Long Island, NY and now a lot of places have it. Nothing needs to be changed, smooth, taste delicious!
Incredibly smooth. Hints of chocolate, vanilla. Not harsh entering or on the finish. I've had many rums and this one is still by far the best.
Best rum I have tasted. Smooth and sweet, but not too sweet.
Very dark, with a full flavor. Is sweet but it taste great and please never ruin it by mixing it with cola. This is a premium straight up rum.
As a relatively new Rum drinker I don't have a lot of experience when it comes to this, but, this is still my favorite drink.
It is hard to find any faults in this rum. From the smell, the smoothness of the taste, the aftertaste, all just keeps me want to drink more. I always drink it neat or on the rock
I really enjoy this rum. I love the smell, sweetness and overall taste!
Teniendo en cuenta su precio y la calidad que atesora es sin duda uno de los mejroes rones del mundo en la actualidad.
This rum, in my opinion, may be the smoothest rum out there. I find ithat goes down a bit too smooth at times is troublesome because it disappears so fast. I recommend it straight, with whiskey stones, or maybe one ice cube as you don't want to water it down. The sweetness is there for sure but I personally don't feel it's overpowering. Not an every day drinker but more for occasion.
Beautiful sipping rum. Worth the money and is very smooth. Long legs in glass and looks as divine as it tastes

Hodnocení: Nedoporučuji začátečníkům! Panáka tohoto rumu jsem poprvé ochutnal jednou v hospodě (zdravím aoe scénu) ve značně pokročilém stádiu opilosti. I tak mi ale zůstal v hlavě (i po těch pivech jsem poznal, že prostě chutná jinak než všechno, co jsem do té doby pil) a byl jsem rozhodnut si jednou koupit celou láhev. Když pak nastal ten den a já v klidu ochutnal čerstvě otevřenou láhev, tak jsem byl zklámán. Žádná výrazná chuť, nuda, proč to stojí tolik... V té době jsem nebyl schopen to docenit.
(---- nyní přeskočíme o pár let a rumů kupředu ----).
Dnes si tento rum nemohu vynachválit. Přijde mi, že v sobě spojuje hodně dobrých vlastností ostatních rumů. Mísí v sobě spoustu chutí (vanilka, káva, kakao ...), z nichž žádná vyloženě nevyčnívá. Stejně tak se nachází přesně na pomezí mezi hořkostí a sladkostí. Má výrazný dozvuk a přitom si zachovává naprostou jemnost (toto slovo Zacapu charakterizuje asi nejlépe).
Až postupem času (a pitím ostatních rumů) jsem přišel na to, proč je zrovna tento tak vychvalován. To, jak v sobě dokázal skloubit spoustu vlastností (některé z nich protikladné), je obdivuhodné.
