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.

Sugar, sugar and sugar. Thats what this rum is. A bit of 23yo rum for audience, rest mix of much younger ones. Did I mentioned sugar? Yes, there is a lot of it inside. You get sweet, pretty smooth rum, but for this price, you can get much better one.

Smell: Vanilla, cane-sugar, toffe

Taste: Sweetness, smooth, caramel, almost no burn.

Pienso que el Solera 23 fue mejor. De alguna manera ya no me gusta tanto como hace años. De todas maneras es un clásico y sigue siendo de lo mejor que hay en el mercado. Satinado en la boca, potente en la nariz y mucho sabor a vainilla, chocolate y madera. Sigue siendo un clásico y referente, pero mejor es el Etiqueta Negra.

Additives and deception aside this rum tastes great. Not a million miles away from diplomatico reserve which I prefer. Over all I would happily drink this straight .

When my favourite Scotch was unavailable, the bar tender suggested I try Zacapa 23, I loved it from the first sip. Yes it's sweeter than Scotch but I loved the balance of the flavour, rum was always a mixer for me, but not anymore. I read some say it's too sweet. Not for me, it's smooth and very easy to drink. The rum that started my collection,

After reading many mixed reviews about this rum I'm a little bit confused. My first impression is positive about the taste but I think this is a rum which I will drink occasionally.

For the price range that this bottle is at, this rum hits all the right notes with its ideal Latin American flair. This rum is perfect for new and experienced rum drinkers. A “go to” rum for any occasion. Enjoyed with a single ice cube or neat; please don’t tarnish this rum with coke or lime.

Armonioso, equilibrato, maledettamente beverino. Il migliore fra i rum commerciali

My introduction to aged rum, Solera system and cane juice. I was surprised by how not unpleasant it was. Since then I’ve learned about dosage and misleading age statements. Nevertheless I like it. There, I’ve said it.
