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.
I would say I am a solera fan. I was expecting a lof from that rum. I fully agree with Nigel review. bit of desapointment. so nice to sip but not my favorite
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
First of all. I'm not a fan of rum's that seems filtered through sugar-canes in the bottling process. To be blunt, this rum is not at all living up to it's reputation.
I do however approve of this rum as a type of dessert. I'm imagining it being a good addition to a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. But for sipping in front of the fireplace, i would go for a much less sweet rum.
This version of Zacapa is allowed to drink in any way of the consumer preferred, but it should not be marketed indicating 23 years, I think it is more related to one of 10 years
My first rum, so it have a special place in my heart, but after alot of other rums I don't think it is that good anymore. but still a fine rum.
Popping off the top it smells like diplomatico and brugal. So this will be on the sweeter side. Little cinnamon spice if im not mistaken, no alcohol smell. In the glass it smells much different an alcohol molasses smell more like. I give this rum an 8 dont get me wrong it is good but I feel like this is not worth its price. For 48$ it should be around 25$ taste value wise. This rum is pussers if they messed up, so I will recommend pussers over this. Not very good in diet coke. Has a nice entry then a weird chocolate bitter after taste that I am not fond of. After letting it breath for a while it got better but still I will recommend other bottles over this. I sound like I hate this but its pretty good but just cost wise its what makes it lose for me and I'm all about the bang for the buck. But putting that aside it is an 8/10 rum.
This had a lot of hype and for me, simply didn't deliver. It wasn't bad at all, but not one I would buy again with so many fantastic choices in this price range.
+ good for everyone, balanced and gentle taste, noble rum, price category
- almost nothing, maybe little bit ~ flavor. Everything is really perfect.
Recommended Solera Rum
I know full well that most very famous drinks are usually less than advertised, but this one truly delivers. Incredibly rich taste, exquisite flavour and a truly unique nose.
A nicevrum to have with a coke, very sweet, and I normally Like a sweet drink but a bit too much. I read lots of revieews stating it was nice to sip, but not for mevsupping unfortunately.
I'm mostly a rum and coke fan, and I am working on drinking all my rum straight. I love this with coke, but I can see why sippers don't like it.
Definatelly more expansion in your mouth than the 15th aged one. you can feel the sweetness flooding your mouth and the flavors of Caramel and Vanilla express themselves. Best with a Cuban cigar.
Nice smooth rum. Been waiting to try this one for a while, as its one of the beginners go to rums and it didnt dissapoint me.Will use this rum as a reference to rate other rums.
må indrømme at de første par gange jeg smagte den var jeg ikke vild med den.
Men men men...... den vokser på mig og nu synes jeg den er ganske udemærket.
Men om den er så god som mange mener, det ved jeg ikke rigtig.
Ron Zacapa 23 Solera is a decent rum. It is sweet/semi-sweet rum that smells and tastes of butterscotch, vanilla, cacao, and spice. Goes down easy, but lacks the complexity and strength of other top tier rums. It doesn't taste like a 23 year rum.
