Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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
I'm not getting a huge amount of complexity. As this is pretty expensive in the UK you would expect a lot more when spending this kind of money.
It is a very nice rum and if you can get it for around £60 ( and I was lucky to get it doe this) go for it but as it's generally available around £85 or more than there are better rums around that price mark and much better for even less than that.
They have done a good job with the packaging and I truly love the decanter bottle but it's a shame that it is not reflected in the contents. It's just too close to the 23 in flavour profile which doesn't warrant almost double the price.
Er i en helt anden klasse en den klassiske 23 fra Zacapa. Denne rom er virkelig smooth. Den har rigtig godt af lige at stå 15 min i glasset inden den drikkes.
I like its mildness but for the price it might need to be even a bit better.
I like the XO a lot and do enjoy drinking it neat. The problem though is that I truly was hoping to be blown away and love it unconditionally and that is not the case. I still gave it a 9 rating because it is that good but I was hoping for better. If that all makes sense? lol
Ron Zacapa XO Rum er i forhold til den meget kendte 23'er, meget mere blød og fyldig både i duft og smag.
one of the best i have had... bettter the zacapa solera 23 and the Flor de Caña Centenario 21 comes close but not quite as good...
this is a beautiful drink in a beautiful bottle. Save it for only special events. And only for yourself
This rum is extremely smooth with a nice long finish. It coats your mouth beautifully leaving yoir tongue wanting more of that experience.
It smells divine, and taste of fruits like a Christmas fruit cake.
This rum is best appreciated at room temperature with nothing else but you really appreciating its beauty.
ik laat het bij de boven titel: ik stond te trappelen als een kind.
I really enjoyed this amazing smooth rum. Fancy looking bottle. 100+ is a bit steep. But i will keep it stocked
Take the 23 year old up a couple of notches, triple the finish, smoothness and of course the price and you have this bottle of pure nectar! More like the perfect liquid dessert!
Very smooth rum. One of the best in my collection. Was not too impressed with the FIRST taste, it got MUCH better after it was able to breath a bit....
Fantastically smooth rum -- sweet and warm, syrup, caramel, cinnamon.
Lo mejor que he probado hasta ahora en rones, bonita presentación, delicioso sabor!
Since a trip to Guatemala few years ago when I first tried this rum, I have been a believer. It is the best of the best. Sweet, smooth and with a long finish. I think every rum aficionado should try it at least once, straight please.
rich and sweet, everything you would expect. An exceptional sipper.
This rum is amazing. It need no ice it is the perfect sipping rum and as fine as any fine wine or port. Oil of vanilla permeates the rum as well as hints of chocolate. You can taste the sherry.
Det er simpelthen den bedste rom jeg har smagt til dato. Glimrende uden is.
My favorite rum. It is a bit expensive, but you get what you pay for.
Hab leider nur noch eine Flasche dieses Tropfens. Nur pur natürlich. So sollte für mich Rum schmecken
Very smooth - a great sipping rum. Wasn't impressed with my first taste but once it got some air I loved it!
It's perfect in every quality a great liquor should be; taste, aromas, color, it is top scores. The decanter is the nicest I've seen. If you can afford it,don't hesitate.
A very nice, smooth aged rum. Like rum shoud taste.
This is much smoother and fuller in flavour than the 23 (which I think is quite 1 dimensional) a long lasting taste which is slightly spicey but not everyday so. It was my favourite rum for a long time until I tried some in the £200+ bracket. For £100 it's about as good as you can get along with diplomatico 2000 and el d 21. The bottle looks great too!
