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
This is one rum that I enjoy and I don't mind that it not a hot rum anymore. It's become widely availible now'a'days.
It has subtle and balanced spice notes, a bit og sweetness that leaves a fine "fatty" mouthfeel.
It's a must try, but there a better and more interesting ones around.
Love the 23 year for a go to, everyday rum. To me, this is right on par with the El Dorado 12 & 15. Great nose, smooth and a nice finish.
While I am relatively new to enjoying quality rums, I find this one is one of the best I have tasted. This rum may be a bit too expensive because I have had a couple of other rums that were close at nearly half the price. That said, I still think that this is a great rum.
Its sweet but the sweetness isn't over the top. Good combination of brown suger, vanilla, caramel, and oak. One of the most balance rums I have found. My only criticism is I consider the use of the new charred oak in the aging process a negative. You can taste the char on the finish.
I think Zacapa is a kind of RVM for teenyboppers. Actually, It is a Must and I'm afraid that people drink Zacapa, especially for fashion that for delight.
Surely it is a Great RVM with an unmistakable leather and tosted wood smell and, caramel and almond taste. Many people consider it like the "Cognac of the RVM". In effect, for an agricole, Zacapa is silk, maybe it is excessively velvety and there is the risk to touch lightly the "dull".
However it's unavoidable to try it!
