Ron Zacapa XO

Guatemala | Aged

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.

I love the bottle and the rum is top notch. I would drink the Zacapa 23 for half the price, but this is a must have for speical ocassions... like Saturdays.

Real smooth, dark colour, one of my favourite.
A real good Rum.

Since Zacapa was the first real rum I purchased, I partial to this stuff. Generally, my dive buddies and I figure if it has an XO in the name, worth a try. I scored this on sale for about $81. Since I live on an island, my rum choices are limited. The rum is a beautiful color, sweet smell, and with time, opens up nicely. Can be a little strong at first, but after about 10 mins in the glass, it becomes quite nice. I have not yet tried on the rocks and the bottle is 1/2 full. Not sure I’d be willing to pay full price, but will definitely buy again on sale.

like a huge cognac crown on a bourbon's muscular body, and man's skin lotion.

It's good but for this price you could get 3 bottles of significantly better rum.

The extra aging in Cognac barrels adds a new complexity to the rum. Sipping it neat now and loving the long finish.

I think of this rum like water through divine hands. It is incredibly smooth and I would say the best I have had to date. I find it hard to justify the cost over Zacapa 23 at 2x the cost, but it is superb.

Excepțional.. Nu cred că există o descriere a acestui rom aproape perfect. Un rom deosebit. Prețul reflectă calitatea acestei delicatese. Recomand oricând și pentru oricine straight sau on the rocks.

Cloyingly sweet, hot, syrup, banana, stone fruit, burnt caramel. The finish saves it somewhat; hot goes to warm and hangs around for a nice fruity ending.

Color is so dark it screams added caramel.
Sugar-26g and it taste like at least that much.
