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
That's some good stuff
Avast! Havin' had the Ron Zacapa 23, I can tell you that this be even better. She be sweet smellin', but not terribly so. There be a spiciness to her with some oak, caramel, and, unless I am mistook, a hint of sweet crisp apple. Real delicate like. On the tongue, she be extra smooth with a lot of flavor and not much burn goin' down the hatch. She not be terribly sweet, but not dry, and there be a bit of spice, burned sugar, some oak, a hint of smoke... and again with the apple at the very end. Curse me for a lubber, the apple were the biggest surprise. This be a real mature rum with lots to offer. Given the price of this beast, you might be thinkin' about savin' your coin for more economical rum choices. This one be worth a shot, mates. Even if it only be one shot, make it count!
Ve vůni nic výrazného, barva jednoznačně dobarvovana. Chuť příjemná, jemna drevitost, vanilka. Závěr mega jemný nic nečekaného se zde neodehrava. Na zacapu dobrý
Tried this when out to dinner recently and was a little unimpressed given I've had this on my wishlist for some time now. The biggest letdown is knowing this cost $200AUD a bottle and feel like I've had better including the Diplomatico.
I’d say this one definitely has a complex flavor profile that comes on subtly. It lingers in your mouth for a while, in a good way. Very smooth but with a noticeable warmth and a slight bite from the cognac at the end. Good for sipping on the rocks. I’d call it a slow burner because you keep noticing more about it the farther you get into your glass. You can tell it’s a good rum right away, but the real personality of it comes on slowly so you might start out thinking it’s not up to snuff for the price point (I paid $110 in Atlanta in May 2021) but the more you sip, the more it wins you over. I don’t care about unwritten rules or any kind of rum snob stuff, so I put it in a rum and Coke cause that’s what I’m gonna do with most rum I get, and it makes a great rum and Coke, like you’d expect. Some people would say you could just use a cheap rum and be fine but I tried going back and I can’t. There IS a difference it makes.
The bottle I had before this was El Dorado 15 year and it was great to and wins you over faster than this does, but this one is definitely more complex, and if I can notice that, surely someone else would be able to. It’s like one of those songs that you hear the first time and think, “it’s good, but what’s the big deal” but then something changes and it ends up being a classic to you. Sip it, give it time, and don’t over think it, let the flavors come to you and they WILL. Worth it to me.
This is my Zacapa Centinario XO. Mild in taste, nice aroma, but absolutely not worth the price in my opinion. To vomi 1011: I was unable to post photos in Discussion.
