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.

This rum, in my opinion, may be the smoothest rum out there. I find ithat goes down a bit too smooth at times is troublesome because it disappears so fast. I recommend it straight, with whiskey stones, or maybe one ice cube as you don't want to water it down. The sweetness is there for sure but I personally don't feel it's overpowering. Not an every day drinker but more for occasion.

Beautiful sipping rum. Worth the money and is very smooth. Long legs in glass and looks as divine as it tastes

Hodnocení: Nedoporučuji začátečníkům! Panáka tohoto rumu jsem poprvé ochutnal jednou v hospodě (zdravím aoe scénu) ve značně pokročilém stádiu opilosti. I tak mi ale zůstal v hlavě (i po těch pivech jsem poznal, že prostě chutná jinak než všechno, co jsem do té doby pil) a byl jsem rozhodnut si jednou koupit celou láhev. Když pak nastal ten den a já v klidu ochutnal čerstvě otevřenou láhev, tak jsem byl zklámán. Žádná výrazná chuť, nuda, proč to stojí tolik... V té době jsem nebyl schopen to docenit.
(---- nyní přeskočíme o pár let a rumů kupředu ----).
Dnes si tento rum nemohu vynachválit. Přijde mi, že v sobě spojuje hodně dobrých vlastností ostatních rumů. Mísí v sobě spoustu chutí (vanilka, káva, kakao ...), z nichž žádná vyloženě nevyčnívá. Stejně tak se nachází přesně na pomezí mezi hořkostí a sladkostí. Má výrazný dozvuk a přitom si zachovává naprostou jemnost (toto slovo Zacapu charakterizuje asi nejlépe).

Až postupem času (a pitím ostatních rumů) jsem přišel na to, proč je zrovna tento tak vychvalován. To, jak v sobě dokázal skloubit spoustu vlastností (některé z nich protikladné), je obdivuhodné.

Slightly sweet at first, gives way to a full bodied aftertaste and a smooth finish, very nice

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!!!!

Love it!

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.
