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 am a major fan of Cruzan Single Barrel Rum. I tried the Ron Zacapa 15 at a friend's house and I was amazed. The Cruzan has more molasses in the nose, but the Zacapa had a richer flavor. I couldn't find the Zacapa 15, so I picked up the 23 Solera. Same result - not as much molasses in the nose, but richer tasting. Now I'd like to be able to compare it with the Zacapa 15. My friend likes the 15 better than the 23.
I used to drive 4 hours to RI to buy it, I recommended it to a liquor store in Long Island, NY and now a lot of places have it. Nothing needs to be changed, smooth, taste delicious!
Incredibly smooth. Hints of chocolate, vanilla. Not harsh entering or on the finish. I've had many rums and this one is still by far the best.
Very dark, with a full flavor. Is sweet but it taste great and please never ruin it by mixing it with cola. This is a premium straight up rum.
It is hard to find any faults in this rum. From the smell, the smoothness of the taste, the aftertaste, all just keeps me want to drink more. I always drink it neat or on the rock
Teniendo en cuenta su precio y la calidad que atesora es sin duda uno de los mejroes rones del mundo en la actualidad.
