Now this is some good stuff
Got this rum as a parting gift from my co-workers. Didn't have high expectations but it is surprisingly great actually. Very well balanced, sweet at first nip, strong after and a great palet of tastes like citrus, chocolate and wood afterwards. Makes you want more than just a sip!
I really like XO and this one taste me slighly better. Maybe it is because of higher ABV cuz I prefer stronger rums. Taste is very mild with flavours of nuts, caramel, citruses and spice. Very well balanced and super-smooth. I can highly recommend this beauty.
Tasted the 2019 in comparison with Royal, Aniversario 30, Edition Negra and XO.
It tastes hravy and is close to Royal, they have the 45% in common. 2019 is more sharp, younger and has more mandarine aroma.
But Royal is still heavier and more balanced.
I would prefer the 2019 edition for the price, it's strong and intensive.
XO has a young freshes it is still a great rum, but the 2019 Edition is stronger and more matured.
Smell: caramel, wood, herbs/plants (the typical Zacapa aroma, it was very strong in the 2014 version), tropical fruits (some tangerine, some pineapple), dry fuits (plum, date, raisins), toasted barrel, some sharpness
Taste initial: caramel with dry fruits (date, raisins), some mandarine
Middle: burned suggar, barrel or old wood
Taste finish is middle long: spice, sweet wood, some light bitterness
Aftertaste: date and caramel, maybe some milk chocolate
Value (75€): 4/5
Finishing in Moscato casks
Aroma is typical Zacapa. Taste is full fruity, warm and sweet. Not so much wooden like other Limited vrsions. Aftertaste is longer and nice withsherry tones.
