Ron Zacapa 23 Solera rum

Ron Zacapa 23 Solera

Guatemala | Aged

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.

Taste of tobacco, honey and nuts.
Spiced rum and easy to drink but the taste is not equivalent to the reputation.

Zacapa is one of the most renowned rum brands in the world and that is why this rum was one of my first contacts with the world of rums. Despite produced in Latin America, the taste is more similar to British type rums and brandy. Although I find Zacapa slightly overrated, I would never reject a glass of this rum which is "reccomendable to most". P.S.: Very beautiful bottle. 75%

A benchmark rum. A Solera, so the label is misleading (with the oldest at 23 years). But, a smooth drinking rum.

On the nose you find oak, toffee, fruit, vanilla. Take a sip, and as it lingers other flavors awaken. Smooth, with a little more vanilla, spices.

Not a lot of burn in the throat. The nose lingers, as the alcohol fades.

Only few words for this fabulous rum. Younger brother of Zacapa XO. It follows it very well.

For me it is wonderful, smooth and tasy though a friend of mine whom I admire as a real rum expert hates the taste. I guess both opinions may be true

Možná to nebude úplně objektivní hodnocení. Byl to můj první vstup do světa rumu. Do té doby jsem byl zastáncem whisky. Seděli jsme s bratrem a on povídá:" Dáme si rum." První sklenička byla pro mě velké překvapení. Vskutku lahodné pití, musíme si dát ještě jednu jestli je to opravdu tak dobré...a ještě do třetí nohy....a ještě poslední skleničku a druhou poslední a v lahvi moc nezůstalo. Tmavá barva, příjemná nasládlá chuť, pěkná vůně. Kvůli sladké chuti jsem měl trochu strach z rána, ale probuzení bylo v pohodě. Viva Zacapa.

I struggle with this one, smooth and sweet but it is all due to additives. Would love to try the Zacapa lineup in a pure form!

The ron zacapa 23 solera is a complex blend with fruity aromas with a beautiful flavor!! Would recommend 👍

Ron Zacapa 23 solera is very enjoyable to drink, it's hard to dispute that. However, the sweetness of the rum does tend to mask the more complex spices and flavours that most rum drinkers enjoy. Also given the price range that it falls under, I would personally recommend picking up something with more substance.

Rhum réputé du Guatemala, ce Zacapa 23 solera est une demi-déception.
Design : présentation surannée, avec un bouchon en liège, ce rhum a une couleur ambre foncé.
Nez : caramel, chocolat
Goût : attaque très(trop?) douce puis montée en puissance des arômes, chocolat noir, boisé, épice puis longue finale très moelleuse.
Agréable à déguster, ce rhum est trop sucré pour être honnête.
