Ron Zacapa 23 Solera rum

Ron Zacapa 23 Solera

Guatemala | Aged

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.

I was gifted this rum for my Birthday and I enjoyed it very much. Always smooth and tasty. Definitely sweet, which, as I said, I like.

I can see why many people love this—it’s sweet, it’s strongly flavored with reliable notes of coffee, nuts, and chocolate, and it’s priced among other mid to high end sippers from Jamaica, Barbados, and Venezuela. But this blend from Guatemala desperately needs ice in my opinion—otherwise, it gives me a harsh burn that travels into my chest. When chilled and softened, its a decent sipper, but I still prefer its competitors from the aforementioned countries.

Sweet and balanced. Nice as a regular to go rum as it is good value for money.

A Sweet Rum that is excellent. Very smooth tasting and probably my favourite

"Premium" rum loaded with sugar. Taste it close to other serious options (for the same price or even much less money) and you'll notice a big difference. Heavy caramel notes and overwelmingly sweetness are all that I remember from drinking it neat.
3/10 because it is a mixing rum advertised as a quality sipping rum.

Rum ricco di sapore, inizio si sente alcool ma alla fine grande sapori e dolcezza.
Rimane un icona dei RUM.

Fine sipping experience, perhaps a little sweet. Better bottles available at this price point

Wonderful aging, color and bottle. But all that sugar is not necessary. It could have easily been an 8. Alas. I enjoy sipping it, but not enough to spend all that scratch on a 2nd bottle.
