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.

Een rum met een interessant verhaal betreft zijn rijping in 'The House Above The Clouds' ...
Deze rum wordt vaak als goed tot zeer goed aangeprezen. Ik deel deze mening niet. De blend dmv het solera systeem maakt dat deze rum inderdaad zijn smaak, geur en looks, jaar op jaar kan doorgeven.
Ik herken hier echter maar heel weinig tot geen 'oude gerijpte' rum in. Echter 1 druppel van een 23 jarige barrel, maakt dat men er mag '23 jaar gerijpt' op drukken.
Voor mij is dit eerder een middelmatige rum, waar het alcoholgevoel het wint op het smaakgevoel. Is te prijzig voor wat je ervoor krijgt.
Desalniettemin zorgt de goede marketing en positionering voor een grote afzetmarkt. Dat deze dan ook vaak als 'eerste goede rum' bij een beginnend verzamelaar in de collectie staat is niet verwonderlijk.

Ron Zacapa is a letdown for me since I at expected a rum to at least make me doubt my favorite. Not quite as honeyed vanilla sweet as I like and more burn in the mouth. It's also about 20% higher than Says. Solid 7

good but too sweet

smooth but strong, with a chocholate over 65% is a great moment of personal well-being

God rom til førstegangs rom smager. Har en god duft og smage af Karamel, men bliver i længden kedelig.

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 :-)

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.
