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.
I originally received this as a gift and have bought several since. I drink this instead of vsop cognac.
Zacapa Solera 23 is truely the reference rhum. It has a nice body, it has a silky texture, and a very sweet taste. (brown sugar, caramel, a hint of cooking spices).
This one opened my eyes to what a truly great experience rum can be! Sipped slowly, the Zacapa 23 was smooth, flavorful, and full of body. The sting was light on the back of my throat and the burn was warm and very soothing. Sweet, but not overly so. Highly recommended!
Juste un petit délice ! A déguster de toute urgence.
This rum is sweet and smooth in the mouth, but lacks depth and complexity of flavour. I was a little disappointed.
One of my top 5 rums. It has a powerful start and smooth finish. The bottling is fantastic. Feels like it was dug from the sands of a Caribbean island.
Not complex and the flavor that is there doesn't stay around very long. XO is far better and I would go for lots of other rums in my cabinet before I go for this. An ice sphere makes this drink come alive but don't let it dilute too much or it will start to become nothingness
Un peu déçu lors de ma première dégustation par rapport aux commentaires lus. Mais excellent rhum tout de même. A recommander
One of the smoothest and well balanced rums in my collection.
One of the better rums out there! Mixing it is a shame! Smooth and flavourful. A must-try for sure.
Puissant, suave et tres aromatique. Indispensable dans toute bonne cave
Not nearly the strength of the old days. this rum is still a crowdpleaser. Sweet and balanced. But very linear/ almost too sweet.
I enjoy it completely one was just a find I grabbed from duty free and became a Favourite
Doesn't have the nose that others do, but very smooth. Initially was slighly dissappointed by after drinking for awhile now, I have come to appreciate this one more. I can never have one glass of this stuff. So smooth.
This was the first aged rum I tried, and it was love at first sight, amazing taste, it made me see rum in a completely different way and made me realized what i was missing. I consider this to be one of the best rums I have tried so far, it really has a presence and became famous for it, the combination of flavors, the aroma and how it feels in your mouth, once you have the first sip is difficult not to have a second one.
Being the rum that introduced me to this world of quality drops it will always be a part of any selection. However it does not have the deepness and smoothness as many of the others in KY cabinet, so it is opened less and less.
Copper-tinged gold. Sweet, spicy nose. Caramel and fruit taste. Spicy, slightly fiery. Honey-cocoa-coconut-vanilla finish
Ron Zacapa er rommen vi drikker hos os, alle andre smager vi på.
This was my first contact with this rum, and i have to say i enjoy that rich and smokey flavour a lot!
Aftertaste is also brilliant, kind a like its melting and constantly bringing these new flavours to the top.
I like the sent of molasses, color is nice rich and deep..
One of the the best i have found in Finland so far.
Heres a pic from last night :D
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.
