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
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.
A nicely balanced rum that finishes sweetly but without much character. I think I’d prefer to drink the Zacapa 23 and use to money I’d save to buy another bottle of same.
Dette er absolut en særdeles god rom, jeg syntes dog den lige mangler det sidste for at kunne hive sig op på en 9`er. Men det er stadigvæk et rigtig godt glas rom, der kommer i en eksklusiv flaske og kasse.
This one is definitely my number one.
It’s so smooth and after a few seconds comes that boom that hits your chest. Just amazing. I can zip on a glass almost a hour, enjoying every single drop.
I compared this to 4 other great aged rums. While not the best, it wasn’t far behind it. The smooth flavor of this rum keeps bringing me back for more.
You can’t go wrong with it. Drink up my friends!!
Hard to imagine something a whole lot better than this. Sipped neat it's incredibly smooth with wonderful mix of spices, vanilla, and caramel. The lingering aftertaste is just delightful. Definitely what I personally enjoy. Pairs wonderfully with chocolate or a nice madura cigar.
I love this rum. It is sweet with a full mouth feel, lots of vanilla / molasses flavors, very smooth, and a long finish.
Superb sipping one for me. Very balanced taste with sweetness a bit spicy, fruit like. Caramel, some orange. Darker colour. Love it.
Had a chance to taste Zacapa XO at a friends house. Now he is a very good friend that I will visit more often. A straight sipper, smooth, nice body, lingering aftertaste. Not overly complex and no strong spices. Gentle, balanced, sip it slowly and enjoy.
