Ron zacapa 23 years is a magnificent rum , perhaps the best solera I know, but "straight from the cask".... oh man this is something else! The alcohol is more from the normal edition as I can see from the label. From the dottle you are suspicious about the content. I can see the signature of master blender, the bottle series number, also the trademark of zacapa straw bracelet is darker and has better quality from the ordinary. In the snifter glass I can see the darker color and the full body of the spirit, now my first impression that is something else from the ordinary is confirmed as I give some time to the spirit to bring all the aromas up. I can see in the nose melassa, walnut cream, dried fruits, I proceed in the mouth and I feel in my mouth the full body of the drink, honey, walnut cream,coffee, banana, cloves,in the end my tongue has vanilla ice cream. Even when I drink the sample my mouth had the taste about 12 seconds after! Enormous rum, I tried ron zacapa xo, 23 , nothing compares with this treasure! Worth every penny.

A piece of history, lots of power with a delicate sweetness and softness. This Rum has it all.

I had great expectations, trying this SFTC expression from Zacapa. I found it however, to be like sirup, way to sweet for my taste, and with a bland taste, that led my thoughts 10 different rums in the same style. This rum is not indistinguishable enough from other sweet high-end rums, to be worth the high price.

This not like the 23 solera edition..!!
Perfect rum in my head, sweet, spicy and a great power and balance
Highly addictive.
Buy it if you find it, very rich in the nose, molasses, orange peel, vanilla, oak.
Mouth so complex and smooth, sweet yet very spicy and so much more than the 23 solera.
Aftertaste is long and so balanced and just keep on coming.

Toffee, spice, sugarcane, honey, sherry, and oak. A very nice rum; similar to the Zacapa 30, but just a tad sweeter and stronger.

The nose is full and sweet with clear notes of figs, vanilla, marzipan and barrel. After it's been breathing a bit in the glass there's aloso cherry notes emerging. The palette offers a big, clear sweetness composed of cherry, marzipan and candied figs with a long, lightly spicy and sweet, fruity finish. I had high hopes for this rum as everyone rates it highly.
Though it's good and very special, I find it perhaps a bit to sweet and one glass is enough for me.

Amazing rum tasting with Falcon91Wolvrn03 continued with a super rare Ron Zacapa Straight from the Cask. Beautiful old school bottle and label design. Reddish golden color. Super flavorful Zacapa and easily the best Zacapa I have ever tried. Better than 30y Blue Label and better than both 23y White and Black Labels, simply an amazing rum!
