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.
Pour une petite 50aine d'euros, on a un très bon rhum, beaucoup d’arômes, assez sucré (trop?). C'est le rhum qui m'a fait découvrir le monde des rhums vieux.
It's a bit sweet, but very enjoyable.
excellent rum highly recommend it. enjoy
All-arounder catch almost every beginner.
Works straight up and in cocktails. It´s reputation is bigger that the rum. But still a good rum for all.
Very nice rum. Even that fact that it is ondt a very low percentage of 23 year old rum it is still an exelent glass of rum.
Kjøpt på Flesland
Easy to drink lovely taste
I like to keep an aged rum around in my home bar, and this bottle was so good, it did not last long at all. It definitely has a sweeter taste, but it is far from cloying. Very smooth, easy drinking. Great in mixed drinks where the base spirit can shine (makes a great Old Fashioned).
It's a decent buy. On the sweeter side. There are better, more complex solera rums out there for the same price I'd say.
Very enjoyable. One of my favourite rums to have neat
Like The aroma, the vanilla, perhaps a bit to sweet and flirty
But very wellproduced!
not as good as flora decana 21 but a rum i will always enjoy with good cuban cigar and will always have in my cabinet..and who in their right mind would purchase an expensive bottle of rum to adulterate it with cola or even water
I find it a little too bit strong for my taste
After trying the new Solera 23, I was disappointed. This rum is a shadow of its former greatness. No longer a 23 year old rum, it has been cheapened for mass production. The flavor profile used to be exquisite, now is just another rum in the market.
Peppery, but nice on the rocks. Nice choice though.
Nice sweet solera rum.
I was disappointed only because of all the great reviews I've read about Zacapa being the best rum ever. I thought it lacked the wonderful bouquet of Mount Gay Extra Old and although it was very good I still thought it wasn't as good as Mount Gay Extra Old.
In the field of smooth and very sweet rums zacapa 23 deserves its place. However the flavor experience is oddly similar but less intense than diplomatico reserva exclusiva. Flor de cana 12 and seales 10 offer even better alternatives for far less money. Zacapa got vanilla, caramel and cocoa but it clearly lacks the oak and leather aspects of more balanced rums.
One of the best wich I have tested. Absolutely soft, much flower, women's rum (woman sommelier). Very tasty, difficult and hard
Colore molto scuro, poco trasparente, poco intenso, profumo di banana cotta, aroma di cherry e marsala e ananas. Gusto dolce amaro.
Abbinare poco primo della fine del bicchiere con cioccolata al latte, meglio se aromatizzata all'ananas.
But for my palate something was missing. Still an very good rum and must be tried
