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.

Very deceiving rum period. It's like lets mix and match and pray. I can hear them saying "Those idiots see the 23 & its a sale". Steer clear of this mismatch. Let me add that I see alot of high ratings? If I was a beginner (novice) I might misjudge this also. Sorry my rating stands!

I agree, it is a bit overrated, not bad but not great either, i’ve tried better for the same price range, ugliest color i’ve seen in rums, for a processed rum with added tints i think they are not doing such a great job.

Ďalšia krásna, taktiež veľmi známa fľaša do mojej zbierky. 23-ročný rum, aj keď vyrobený na princípe "solera system" ma prekvapil, vcelku pozitívne, aj keď ide o zmes rumov, z ktorého najstarší má 23 rokov.

Fľaša: samotná fľaša ma zaujala svojimi prvkami, jednak znakom orchidei ale hlavne ručne vyrobeným petate prúžkom na spodnej časti fľaše, ktorý bol vyrobený z banánového lístia - krásny detail, ktorý pre niekoho môže pôsobiť dosť osobne a človeka tak nadchne.

Vôňa: vôňa nie je veľmi výrazná avšak krásne sa tu prelína vôňa medu, kože, trocha korenia, mierne alkohol, čokoláda ale čo na mňa pôsobí najviac je vôňa sušených sliviek.

Chuť: v chuti cítim alkohol, ale je ho tu primerane. Sladkosť medu, taktiež niečo mentolové.

Záver: Tento rum ma prekvapil, aj keď som o ňom počul či už veľa pozitívnych, tak aj negatívnych ohlasov. Pre množstvo ľudí, ako aj pre mňa, ide o akýsi etalón medzi rumami. Pije sa príjemne, niektoré vône sa taktiež prejavia po odstatí pohárika, či už plného alebo prázdneho. Odporúčam

A great smooth tasting rum. Not sweet, just a refined drop enjoyed on the rocks.

Don't shoot me,i didn't mean it's not a good rum but you can have better than this at lower price.
El Dorado 12,Diplomatico Exclusiva,Abuelo 12 are some of better and cheaper rum than this.

The rum really tastes good, and have som Nice aromas, but I thing it is very over rated, and I must say that I expected more of it.

After reading all the glowing reviews, I bought a bottle of this rum, and I am very disappointed. In the USA, I buy it for $35. The Solera costs $53. I have heard that the current owner of this rum producer has been tampering with the formula, so this may have been a great rum years ago, but no more.

Its a very good rum for beginners and I personally enjoy it also neat.
However the sugar taste is strong and sometimes annoying.

If it can be found at Price around 45€ it is worth buying and trying out.
