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
Not being a huge fan of Zacapa (too sweet) I was not expecting this full bodied smooth rum with great depth.nut brown color, smooth taste of mild island spices blended together elegantly. Recommend drinking neat.
They have done a great Job but more effort has gone in to the bottle and the Marketing than the Rum itself
I like it I drink it £82 in UK 2021
Possibly the best bottle of rum on the market. When Zaya sold out and became mass produced I had to find a replacement. This bottle is very pricey but worth every cent. It’s delicate and delicious.
There are lots of good rums. This just happens to be a great one. I love this stuff. A bit pricey to drink on weekends, but holidays and special occasions I break it out. Wish I could afford to drink it more often. Absolute must have.
This rum blows all my friend's minds. Very smooth not so much burn as it is a warm sensation. Being on the pricier side it is reserved for special occasions.
Being on the more difficult side to find if you see it for less than $100 buy it instantly.
Side note: i have an old style bottle from pre-2016, getting a new bottle to see the difference.
Love the rum - but Have a hard time telling the difference between this and Zacapa 23 - both exceptional - I just have a hard time paying the extra sticker price for the XO
It is a great experience is sipping this beauty. It is complex yet smooth. The finish is long and reminds you for a good while how good this rum is.
