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.
This is a delicious rum that is smooth and full of flavour.
It's quality exceeds the price tag.
Det er en helt ok rom, der findes dog meget til samme pris jeg finder bedre. Smag: Sød, melasse.
T u is is a excellent Rum . I had it for the 1st time in Dominican
Jeg startede selv med denne rom og den er en som alle kan lide. Den har lidt kant samtidig med at den stadig er rund og har en god sødme. Ron Zacapa er en masseproduceret rom, som desværre ikke kan leve op til, hvor gode disse rom var tidligere. De er blevet opkøbt og er blevet til en penge maskine. Så den gode rom fra Ron Zacapa Solera er fortid.
When non-rum drinkers appreciate the smooth flavor and truly recognize for what it is - a cut above the rest you know its great. For the price and pleasure its a treat.
Like that you dont feel the alcohol taste so much.
have also the XO but actually like this one much better
and again it is a great deal for around $38 and highly
Ici, on tient la star des Ron de type Solera avec le millonario (le zacapa est un chouilla en dessous mais bon).
Tout y est, un produit sucré mais pas trop. Epicé et avec du caractère. Assez facile à boire.
Un must have pour ceux qui veulent tester ce type de rhum...
Alle kan lide den, men den bliver lidt for sød i længden. Flot gylden farve og god duft.
Amazing brown-mahogany color. Nose similar to a well aged whisky. Strong aromas of sherry oak and american oak sweetness. Tastes very smooth and sweet - with lots of caramel, coffee and prunes or figs. the sugar cane honey makes it round and sweet with no edges and flaws.
This rum has a sweet flavored, lightly smoked, deep, colorful vanilla taste. This bottle deserves his place in your rum collection.
I buy always 2 bottles, because the first one is always so quickly empty.
Den här rommen vill man bara ha mer och mer av.
Riktigt vacker färg och förförisk lukt.
Smaken är rik på kola och vanilj, och upplevs bäst efter 5 minuters luftning.
En klar favorit <3
i really enjoyed to drink this rum. for the pricetag you can't really expect more. a very good balanced rum with a sweet body. the finish is good, but nothing really special. the flavour doesn't hold to long but overall a very good rum and definitely to recomend.
Even though it says, that this rum is at his best on the rocks, I enjoyed it more straight up, because on the rocks it looses quickly on quality.
Riktigt god rom, en av de bättre enligt mig. Kanske en aningen för söt.
I drink rum straight up. The Ron Zacapa Solera 23 is nowhere near as smooth as other aged rums. In fact, I find it to be more than a bit harsh and oddly sweet at the same time. As such, sometimes I can tolerate it, and other times I find the alcohol burn to be a bit too much. Holding it in the mouth results in a scope mouthwash like burn, not unpleasant, but not what I'm looking for in a quality sipping rum. With that in mind, it's simply not smooth enough for the price. It does have a nice color and looks good in the glass. I absolutely don't like it mixed with Coke.
Diplomatico Reserva was one of my favorites (bang for buck), however after picking up RZ 23 at the airport, I had to admit the better overall smoothness.
I love Zacapa 23 - rounded, well-balanced, great for sipping. I love their idea of developing a special Riedel glass for sipping their rum. It's teally world-class marketing and treating their consumers highly. Bravo!
À delicate and complex rhum. Taste of lightly smoked wood. Hazelnut and very faint vanilla.
my second rum i tasted, wow, after abuelo 7 such a change and introduction of real aged rum. Had couple of litres over last months and love it more and more. Sweet and tasty. Just amazing and wil definitely keep on buying it - especially good value for 1l.
Don't get me wrong, this is a good rum, but with all the hype over the Zacapa line, this falls a little short in my opinion. Good notes of vanilla and spice, but the body and finish are a bit on the light side.
Deliciously sweet and popular. Seemingly most folks' introduction to Solera style rums.
Zacapa is an amazing rum regardless of anything. If you are lucky to be able to get ahold of one, there is no way you'll regret it. The pirates can criticize it as much as they want as if their opinion was the rule. The truth is rum is what it is, at least most of the time. That is, if you like less sweet versions of rum, that does not demerit Zacapa, that just speaks about your preferences. Zacapa has a smooth fruity, nutty flavor, not too long, which leaves a discreet, but very positive experience. I personally like to enhance it with lemon or lime and, when I am sad, even honey. The only shortcoming that I find is that I think it is slightly underproofed.
Enjoyed this one a lot around the campfire last summer. Just bought my 2nd bottle.
For its price and all the hype around it, I find this rum quite overrated. It is bit harsh and I find similar but much more pleasant (and chaper too!) rums like Plantation Guatemala or Kraken.
If you have sweeter tastes, or friends who reject drinking neat spirits, then Ron Zacapa is for you. Ron Zacapa Solera 23 is certainly a sweet rum, but has more than enough flavor to back it up.
