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.

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.

I had no intentions of ever purchasing the Ron Zacapa 23 due to their numerous marketing strategies that I feel are quite deceptive. After years of Zacapa 23 seeming to come up in every conversation I was having about rum and being told by more people than I can remember that "Ron Zacapa 23 is the best rum in the world!" I finally broke down and purchased 750ml for $64.00. It is possible that the rum in my bottle was a bit off because of the cork. I have no idea how the rum did not spill out of the bottle during transportation. The cork was so loose that when I pulled the strip to remove the foil covering the cork and the neck, the cork came right out of the bottle splashing rum all over my hand. I'm not sure if the cork shrunk over time or it was too small to begin with, but this is something I have never seen before. There was nothing I could do to return it since the seal was broken. At $64 I was pretty upset. After taking the first sip I could only sit there and shake my head while trying to remember some of the people who persuaded me to buy this. My bottle tasted and smelled of little more than syrupy sweet alcohol but it was drinkable. There is very strong competition in this price range and Zacapa 23 doesn't cut it for me. Based on the price, the state of the cork, and the experience I had with this rum, I will never splurge for the XOs, Reserves, or Special Editions from Zacapa as I imagine they are all over-hyped as well.

usually do not drink run straight but had this at a restauant and liked very much. Read others comments regarding age and sweetness but does not change my opinion

If you want to impress a nice lady and she is in for a adventure, you should give her this one.

Deceiving with it's "23" over a solera rum and with it's added sugar and color, yet a smooth sipping. Easy to drink. Won't take you anywhere interesting but will nevertheless take you a good company once in a while.
