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.
Il fait parti de mon top 5, parfait représentant des rhums élevés en solera. Son léger piquant en bouche le démarque des classiques Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, Opthimus 21 ou Centenario 20 ou 30.
Smooth elegant bourbon and grape scent with a spicy taste with tones of butterscotch and chocolate in the background. Very endurant aftertaste, really stays with you. Top class !!!!
