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
When I first began to enjoy rum, this was the first bottle of good stuff I purchased. It is very sweet, a nice dark color, and has an inviting aroma. I have not purchased in a while mainly due to the fact that this was the first step on a journey through many bottles of rum However, I find most decent bars & dining establishments will have this... IF they have any rum worthy of drinking. Even my Dad, who is first and foremost a wino, a bloody mary, and a gin & tonic kind of guy found this to be quite good. Nothing Rare, but always delivers.
Nice Rum at a good price, great straight, but not so pricey as to cause guilt when mixing with a splash of diet coke
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.
