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.
When you open this bottle of rum: feel welcome, feel warm, feel good. It is so smooth that it is easy to drink the complete bottle at once - and believe me, I did.
Is there any alcohol? Yes there is, but the burn is just perfect to characterize the king of smoothness when it comes to rums.
When I had my first Zacapa, I entered a new world. The world of complexity with a taste that matches the fluid in the golden chalice of god.
And this god is a pirate.
The rum is honestly not too bad. I would give it maybe a 5-6 but it's impossible to tell what it really is. Too dark to be natural, sugar added no doubt. This might be good if it was a pure rum but for no3. 3, needs improvement
The rum is a little sweet on the palate. Over all it is a nice rum to sit down and relax with. I do not like the deceptive nature of the rum. Advertising is as a 23+ year with out being a full 23+ year. Using a mixed method in which the oldest rum is 23 while the average age is more around the 6-8 year range.
It used to be my favorite when I started siping, and still is my go to when on the road, as it is widely available.
A little bit on the sweet side, but is the perfect point of entry for anyone
