Ron Zacapa XO Rum is produced in the highlands of Guatemala where it is distillled from fresh cane juice. The rum is then aged from 6 to 23 years at 7544 feet above sea level at 62 °F (17 °C) using the solera process. The solera aging process incorporates barrels that previously held American whiskeys, sherries, wines and Cognac
The unique Ron Zacapa XO glass decantur features an impression of a woven band around the middle, which is in reference to the original hand woven palm leaf petate bottle cover that covered the bottle
Now this is some good stuff
A great rum and a must for every rum lover. Not on the sweet side at all. In fact is a little bit tough in spirit. The collection of smells and aromas will not disappoint you. Better to try in a bar before to buy a bottle.
Absolutely the best rum I’ve ever tasted I usually drink rum With Ginger beer but this is outstanding just with just Ice can’t go wrong with this one.
I had high expectations, yet not quite met.
It is good, harsh with a hint of sweetness, but not as much as expected by the numerous reviews read.
The smell is not overwhelming, but present.
Don't misunderstand me, a good sipper, yet the "Royal" is much better...ok,...more expensive also ;)
Man, I was so excited to try this out, but my experience with it was a very unpleasant one. For such an expensive rum, I was expecting a host of flavors dancing around my taste-buds, but that didn't happen at all. It was too much heat for my taste.
I like Zazappa, its one of the famous rum in coutry(Slovakia) in pubs (bars). I also would like to taste this higher version, but the difference was 2 years in age, but biggest difference in price was because of shape of bottle.
