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.
Recommendable to most
Nice rum can drink straight or mixer but it's a solera so how much of it is a 23 and how much us younger? Plus 6 years of the age are sitting in bottle rather than aging. So the price is a bit off putting and seems more of a novelty.
well balanced, sweet and the most obvious features is a fine balance between dried fruits, maple syrup and vanilla, honey, toffee, sweet fruit and vanilla.
Picked it up for the first time in Mexico City, WOW!!!! truly a good sipping rum...can be also used as mixer, but is good by itself!!!
very good rum, less sweet then Eldorado 12/15 or Diplomatico, more dry, but perfect smooth, good for siping and the price is also tolerable for me, i will definitely buy it next time
A very dark rum which I usually associate with a heavier Caribbean style rum of molasses origin. But surprisingly it is very light and quite smooth similar in style to some of the finer Martinique rums.
