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.
I recently tried this rum and it was so damn good. I went on a cruise and every bar had this rum. I had bought this rum before I went on the cruise so I knew it was great. I always asked for this rum and all the Jamaican, Bahamian, bartenders would always ask "how do you know about this rum" best rum on the ship. I drank at least 7 bottles lol. A bottle a day. seriously!!!!
Straight up, Mixed drinks, and cola. All great!!!
One of the best rum I tasted. Not a real 23 yo rum but I like the taste.
I bought this rum duty free about 8 years ago and has been my favourite since. I have come to the conclusion that if you are going to drink rum the best rums are the ones you can drink on the rocks.
This rum has subtle spice and smoky flavours and should only be drunk with ice.
I love Zacapa 23 - rounded, well-balanced, great for sipping. I love their idea of developing a special Riedel glass for sipping their rum. It's teally world-class marketing and treating their consumers highly. Bravo!
I bought two mini-bottles (50 ml) to try this. After tasting several times before rating, here's my take: smooth and balanced with a classic rum taste and no odd or overpowering flavors. I tried this neat, neat with a little water and on ice and had no complaint. It's pricy and definitely a special occasion rum. Still weighing my price to quality rating but it's no bargain and I wouldn't use it as a mixer.
This one is amazing, I've had it straight, it's decent, I've had it with coke and Pepsi, it made it taste like some sort of fruit juice, there's a reason you pay $90 with tax.
If your going to buy a special rum then Ron Zacapa pushes all the right buttons!
This was the first aged rum I tried, and it was love at first sight, amazing taste, it made me see rum in a completely different way and made me realized what i was missing. I consider this to be one of the best rums I have tried so far, it really has a presence and became famous for it, the combination of flavors, the aroma and how it feels in your mouth, once you have the first sip is difficult not to have a second one.
Very smooth and sweet full of toffee flavors
For me it is one of the best Rum. I know I only start with rum but I like it :)
Love it neat. But that isn't an option to choose below...
Un des meilleurs de ma collection.
One of the best of my collection
Dans mon top 5 des rhums !
Another of my top 5 or 6. Smokey sweet flavorful.
Perfect sipper , anytime, anywhere
leichter sanfter rum vanille, karamell mandel, nougat, honig und trockenfrüchte.
Avec ce rhum on ne se trompe pas. Ces aromes complexe de vanille, miel et caramel nous donne de le déguster lentement. Il y a moyen de le trouver pas trop cher avec un petit voyage dans le sud. On peut le considérer comme un classique, a ne pas manquer pour toute personne qui adore le rhum.
Tady nebudu objektivní. Jde o můj nejoblíbenější rum. Co k tomu říct více?
Excellent. Perfect blend of Carmel and spice. One ice cube. The best
This is the one rum I'll recommend to anyone who asks what to buy. It appeals to a wide variety of tastes and is widely available. On the rocks or mixed with cola, it is thoroughly enjoyable and I get the same feedback from others I know who try it.
Great smooth Rum. Perfect to drink it on the rocks. I prefer to drink this rum with a cool rock instead of ice, better for the taste.
i'm pretty sure everyone loves this rum. Unbelievably smooth. If you haven't tried it you need to get it.
Good to the last drop. The best rum I have tasted in a long time.
