Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Recommendable to most
I know loads of people rave about this but I literally couldn't drink this neat.
Lots of chemicals on the nose and follows through into the taste.
I thought the bottle would wallow on my creaking shelves forever until I tried it with ginger beer (always old Jamaica) and it redeemed itself a lot.
Still not as good a dark n stormy as elements 8 spiced rum and a bit expensive for a mixer in my mind.
Would've been a 3 without my ginger beer discovery.
The bottle has a exclusive look.. The color is wonderfull. The smell is also nice.. But when the orange taste hits my buds it´s all over for me.. Overpriced and overrated is my short review of this rum. But there is people out there who love orange and for them this should be liquid candy.. For the others.. Try the XO or Etiqueta negra instead..
Short review on this which is apt as this rum has short flavour, it doesn't last or carry forward in the mouth, short finish. Cant see why you would buy this over El Dorado 12 which this in such a different class. I only drink this if in a bar and this is the best offering.
I see no glimmer of hope. Overly sweet and confected, I picked up a bottle in Duty Free about 3 years ago and I still haven't finished the bottle. The strangest thing about it, is that I bought another bottle while passing through at a later date!! I have really tried to like it, but find no redeeming features at all and as it says, "serious improvement needed".
EDIT - the more I drink it the better it gets. But still nowhere near the average that people have given and ultimately I won't be buying this one again.
Ein wahnsinnig überbewerteter Rum, der mit seinem zugesetzten Zucker, seiner Färbung und der missverständlichen Altersangabe ein falsches Spiel mit dem Kunden spielt.
An insanely overrated rum that plays a false game with the customer with its added sugar, coloring and misleading age statement.
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!
