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.

TL/DR - fine for the price, let it breathe for a while before drinking.

Nice notes of mahogany, tobacco, brown sugar and vanilla. I had this neat and also smoked with applewood. Both were great.

But for the price, I'd go with the much smoother Plantation XO. Z 23 is a nice alternative though.

I don't know wether it's the blend or the high altitude that makes this rum shine, but the nose and taste is just awesome.

As it's readily available in tax-free shops on airports throughout europe, europeans have no excuse not to stock at least one bottle at home :-)

very good a little strong dark tasting but still a good rum

I had very high hopes for this rum based on the ratings and research I'd done. It is good, just not great. I've tried it at both room temp and on ice, and prefer it at room temp.

Not much to say about this rum, I think anyone who has ever tasted it will agree with me that it really is one of the best rums ever made

Great dark amber color, spice, cinnamon, smooth finish

Very nice sipping but from reviews I have expected something extraordinary. I lack some strong and distinguishable aroma. In Czech Republic it is quite expensive, so I do not think I will buy second bottle. But still it is very tasteful rum.

I just got my second bottle of Ron Zacapa 23 and it is wonderful. Full body , smooth and fine over ice.

feels more like a summer time rum and so try without ice, warm and rich on the tongue with a smooth slight vanilla after taste.

One of the best rum I have ever had, and I make rum for a living. Grade A stuff. Drank and entire bottle throughout the week on a cruise in April from the Rum bar on a Carnival Cruise Ship. There was only one other rum lover (from MA) that was drinking it with me.
