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
The rum to start with, but also the rum you'll never stop drinking. I see a few claims here that this a not a rum. Don't listen to them, I think that's a ridiculous thing to say! It's important to note that a lot of the reviews here are quite old, and Zacapa have reduced the sugar content from well over 40 grams per liter to about 20. Still quite sugary, but the rum sure has gained a lot of complexity since the change, while still being exceptionally smooth.
Colore molto scuro, poco trasparente, poco intenso, profumo di banana cotta, aroma di cherry e marsala e ananas. Gusto dolce amaro.
Abbinare poco primo della fine del bicchiere con cioccolata al latte, meglio se aromatizzata all'ananas.

This is a sweet rum that makes it an easy entry to the World of rum. And somehow makes a standard to compare to, cause almost everybody knows it. But many People either love it or hate it. In Denmark it has become cheaper, and some People Think it's because it is cheaper produced=Lower quality. Some People know, it's because Diegao get so Big tax reductions in the US that they could give it away for free, and still earn money!
Just Yes! Don't dear pollute this, try straight up first in a good tasting glass then add a nice cube for a whole new variation on the nuances.
