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.
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
Lovely rum with a hint of honey and liquorice.
Certainly a favourite but tends to be more expensive than others.
There are equal, and better rums at better value such as Diplomatica
This is my favourite sipping rum; one of the smoothest sipping rums ever, but a bit sweet. The sweetness and meld of flavours seems a bit artificial, likely from the qualities of the mixing of old/new. The XO is a bit drier, more alcoholic, yet somehow, more authentic to a truly aged one barrel rum. Both are stunning.
