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.

Fra i rum di qualità che ho bevuto è uno dei migliori per serate molto alcoliche!

Nice sipping rum, good on the nose and a fair amount of complexity.

The rum to start with, but also the rum you'll never stop drinking. I see a few claims here that this a not a rum. Don't listen to them, I think that's a ridiculous thing to say! It's important to note that a lot of the reviews here are quite old, and Zacapa have reduced the sugar content from well over 40 grams per liter to about 20. Still quite sugary, but the rum sure has gained a lot of complexity since the change, while still being exceptionally smooth.

It is a good rum nevertheless but in my opinion not a memorable one.
I always enjoy drinking it but I cannot say that I find my self craving to taste it after a period of absence as I feel with some other runs.

At the first sip I took of this I was blown away.After sipping about half the bottle I was a little let down.It got pretty boring.This is an excellent rum for beginners as it's easy to drink.It reminds me of diplomatico reserva but it's not quite as rich.Satisfied that I finally tried this I probably won't repurchase.Priced at $44.99 here at my local liquor store vs $29.99 for Diplomatico.I'll stick with the Diplomatico.

Edit: After trying this on the rocks I change my rating to an 8 it's definetly better on the rocks imo.

For those wanting to graduate from Rum & Coke and start drinking rum neat this is a great rum to start with, smooth, slightly sweet and approachable. Value wise it cannot be beaten compared to what a comparable whisk(e)y will set you back.

Rum when I need comfort, solace and meaning in life.

A bit sweet for some, but not me. Just flat out love this stuff

Sampled this rum but the sweetness Seems to hide any resemblance of a true Rum. Obviously enjoyed by many but this is not for me.
