Ron Zacapa XO

Guatemala | Aged | 40.0% ABV

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

Not really worth the money. Very smooth with nice aroma. A bit week in richness.

Too close to the cheaper Cask 23 version to warrant the higher price. Zacapa overall is a good rum to get people hooked on rum - very drinkable, tasty, but not a ton of complexity. Definitely looks good on the bar and as a gift though.

Even so, I like it when I just want to sit back, toss back, and not have to think about it.

Fantastic presentation of the rum, the bottle reminds me of cognac bottles.

Regarding the rum:
Very nice, a good sipper here and there with some edges, not too smooth and not too sweet, but still something for the sweeter ones under us, but if you compare only the rum (the liquid) itself with the Zacapa 23 Anos, then I would choose the 23 Anos over this one.

A good rum, but too similar to the 23 to justify the price increase

The Zacapa XO adds a last round of aging to the process that produces Zacapa's Solera 23 rum. In spite of the longer aging, I am simply not all that convinced by the output.

It is a really nice sipping rum, make no mistake. It is pleasant on the palate, complex in flavour profile, and an interesting drink. It is just not worth the extra money as compared to the Solera 23, which to my palate is a preferable drink at a noticably lower price.
