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 one rum that I enjoy and I don't mind that it not a hot rum anymore. It's become widely availible now'a'days.
It has subtle and balanced spice notes, a bit og sweetness that leaves a fine "fatty" mouthfeel.
It's a must try, but there a better and more interesting ones around.
Très plaisant, moins sucré qu'un diplomatico mais très agréable au nez et en bouche
If your going to buy a special rum then Ron Zacapa pushes all the right buttons!
I was very excited when I found a bottle of Ron Zacapa Solera 23 at my local store.
Nice bottle nice pour beautiful color, strong alcohol scent hit me harder than expected. But after it sat it became enjoyable.
In the mouth. Some heat up front with molasses, nuts I get a bit if citrus. Smooth finish a little peppery. Over all a good rum but there are better rums for the money.
The flavors start out harsh for my standards, but great coppery color, enjoy it neat!
Dejlig rom som kan nydes uden is og ved stue temperatur. En af årsagerne til at den er så lækker er fordi master blenderen i Guatemala er en kvinde:-D
The Ron Zacapa 23 was the second rum that i tastet. Nice rum. The flavor is deep and balanced.I like Ron Zacapa 23 but not as much as Dictador or Diplomatico.
Zacapa is something you would love on a special occasion without ruining your budget. Extremely smooth and has a very nice finish. Could be slightly too sweet for some though.
I like the Zacapa a lot but you have similar rums for a cheaper price (El Dorado for example) if you ask me.
Zacapa Solera 23 is truely the reference rhum. It has a nice body, it has a silky texture, and a very sweet taste. (brown sugar, caramel, a hint of cooking spices).
This one opened my eyes to what a truly great experience rum can be! Sipped slowly, the Zacapa 23 was smooth, flavorful, and full of body. The sting was light on the back of my throat and the burn was warm and very soothing. Sweet, but not overly so. Highly recommended!
Juste un petit délice ! A déguster de toute urgence.
This rum is sweet and smooth in the mouth, but lacks depth and complexity of flavour. I was a little disappointed.
One of my top 5 rums. It has a powerful start and smooth finish. The bottling is fantastic. Feels like it was dug from the sands of a Caribbean island.
Not complex and the flavor that is there doesn't stay around very long. XO is far better and I would go for lots of other rums in my cabinet before I go for this. An ice sphere makes this drink come alive but don't let it dilute too much or it will start to become nothingness
Un peu déçu lors de ma première dégustation par rapport aux commentaires lus. Mais excellent rhum tout de même. A recommander
One of the smoothest and well balanced rums in my collection.
One of the better rums out there! Mixing it is a shame! Smooth and flavourful. A must-try for sure.
Puissant, suave et tres aromatique. Indispensable dans toute bonne cave
Not nearly the strength of the old days. this rum is still a crowdpleaser. Sweet and balanced. But very linear/ almost too sweet.
I enjoy it completely one was just a find I grabbed from duty free and became a Favourite
Doesn't have the nose that others do, but very smooth. Initially was slighly dissappointed by after drinking for awhile now, I have come to appreciate this one more. I can never have one glass of this stuff. So smooth.
This was the first aged rum I tried, and it was love at first sight, amazing taste, it made me see rum in a completely different way and made me realized what i was missing. I consider this to be one of the best rums I have tried so far, it really has a presence and became famous for it, the combination of flavors, the aroma and how it feels in your mouth, once you have the first sip is difficult not to have a second one.
Being the rum that introduced me to this world of quality drops it will always be a part of any selection. However it does not have the deepness and smoothness as many of the others in KY cabinet, so it is opened less and less.
