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.
Smooth, goes down easy, lightly sweet. Not as creamy as Centenario XX but easily 8 points. A good sipping rum for under $50.
Having been introduced to sipping rum with Zacapa, I will freely admit I may be biased. However, Zacapa is an excellent rum, I prefer it on the rocks, but any method would be good.
Zacapa realise un rhum doux , sucre, equilibre.tres bon il manque juste de complexite et de longueur .il est considere par beaucoup parmis les 15 meilleurs rhums vieux abordables.A essayer obligatoirement pour tout amateur.note 8.0.
After many a Havana club & coke Zacapa 23 was the rum that started me on drinking rum straight. I hear the critics about the actual age etc. Still to me its all about taste and and Zacapa has it in abundance. My go to sipping rum.
I've heard this rum praised quite a few places.
But I don't get it. Relatively mild, sweet but not sugary, not much bite or nose.
It's OK. But nothing more.
This is the one rum I'll recommend to anyone who asks what to buy. It appeals to a wide variety of tastes and is widely available. On the rocks or mixed with cola, it is thoroughly enjoyable and I get the same feedback from others I know who try it.
Because of popularity of this rum I expected something special. Good taste and equilibrium, but it is not so exciting or unforgettable rum.
RON ZACAPA SOLERA... no on ikka rumm mis peaks olema ühe tõelise rummisõbra baarikapis väljapaistval kohal. Hind 50 euro kanti pole küll odavamate killast aga samas ega see kah mingi bacardi puskar pole. Õhtul 6cl jää ja laimiviiluga... LIHTSALT SUPPER
Rum certamente di qualità, qui in Italia il più bevuto, anche chi non apprezza i rum lo conosce.
Trovo che si possa trovare di meglio a questo prezzo ma rimane uno dei miei favoriti in quanto è causa sua se mi sono appassionato al mondo del rum.
Da bere liscio dopo una breve maturazione nel bicchiere, si percepisce bene l'odore ed il gusto del caramello, molto morbido al palato
I liked this one a lot. Very smooth pleasant taste with a slight sweetness. Not as good as my favorite El Dorado 15, but a close second.
I would really love to try a Zacapa without any sugar. This one here is a little bit too sweet (not as much as A.H or a Diplomatico/Botucal) but still a great sipping rum. I had never the chance to test the old 23 anos version, but this is the standard premium rum you should have at home (next to Diplomatico)
Rum always have the misconception that rum has to be sweet and for my experience great rums always tend to finish dry. Pretty approachable rum for the one looking to just getting into the rum world. Easy to drink but a bit too sweet and a little to much residual sugar in the palate.
Really a great taste, smooth with a perfect amount of spice. 7 and not an 8 only because it's too sweet for my palate. Kind of like Pyrat rum on a higher scale. Balances out when you have it on the rocks.
This was the beginning of a Lovestory. I love rum. It has it all from odor to flavour. Every other rum will be compared to this one. Hard to beat but not impossible.
This is a nice rum, has a bit of sweet opening taste and a somewhat dry finish. Some may compare it to the less expensive Zaya, and except for the finish I can see the similarities (and not just in the bottle).
I found this in a duty free shop airport coming back from Ft Lauderdale. I tried in the day after I got home and made my in-laws grab another bottle when they were coming through the airport later.
It's a smooth and tasty rum. I enjoy it straight up,, maybe with some whisky stones in the summer.
