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.
Reminds me the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva (may be a little more complex but surely for a few bucks more).
Very smooth without any alcohol burn.
Very good balance! Smells marvellous. Nothing that can spoil the experience of a perfect rum... Does not have a particular taste that takes over, but the perfect blend of flavours makes this an excellent choice for any lover of great rum!
This rum is well known. But, for me, it is not that good, as everyone says. I had better pieces thhan this, but still, this is a one good rum!
Je ne m'en lasse pas, toute la série Zacapa est fabuleuse: doux et complexe, jamais écoeurant. Une recommandation: achetez-le à l'aéroport, c'est une vraie affaire dans les 60€!
Ron Zacapa 23 Solera, its easy. Very smooth rum which I use for friends to introduce rum to them. And to be honest, it works well. The smooth taste has already convinced several of my friends to start rum life.
Gets sickening with coke after too many. But on the rocks with lime wedge or watered down with coconut water is my favorite way to enjoy this Guatemalan rum. 1/4 the price of the xo and almost as good
sweet, sweet, sweet! you will drink it like a water, this is one candy, like a reward for a good behavior, best straight, 45€ for 1L, one of the best buys! will ever buy again.
Voici un bon rhum très doux à base de mélasse,
Premières impressions, un nez très doux, léger sur des notes de caramel.
En bouche, il est plus corsé et complexe avec une finale longue et agréable.
Un rhum très bon donc, à déguster sec. Cependant, je soulignerai une petite ombre au tableau, son prix.. Pour ce prix, j'en attendais plus.. Je trouve, personnellement, que d'autres rhums sont plus intéressants pour moins cher.
Mein Vergleichsrum - hab immer eine Flasche im Schrank. Süss, jedoch nicht übertrieben. Angenehm und sehr sanft. Viel zu schade zum mixen.
I honestly like the 12y better than this... I found this one to be a bit aggressive . I like smooth, sweet, silky rums, this one feels more like a whiskey.
Il en faut pour tous les goûts mais on est plus proche d'une liqueur de rhum très doux, trop de sucre, la version XO en revanche est réellement plus adapté à un amateur de vieux rhum.
It is really smooth all the time, a little sweet in the middle, and slightly astringent for the palates in the pre-finish phase and with a significant caramel finish! Really quality drink !!!
Similar to Diplomatico reserva exclusiva but with less sugar and a better balance. Be careful this is not a 23 years rum but a blend of rum. I bought the bottle but did not see it was a blend. Nothing compared to a XO. It is easy to drink and slightly more complex than Diplomatico reserva exclusiva. Bottom line, good digestive rum but not something unforgettable
Personally, I believe this Ron Zacapa to be great when making a rum sour. I cannot mix it with Sprite like I do some of my other rums, considering it is not as sweet as the other rums I typically enjoy. It would probably go better with Coke, but I haven't had Coke in awhile. Maybe I will try it one day.
For me, I fine rum. Smooth taste with a hint of plums, later on a hint of honey. A bit too sweet. Aftertaste goes on for a long time. Prefer it without ice
