Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This rum tastes like a lot like the Ron Zacapa 23 Solera rum, but with liquid smoke added (and it's 43%abv rather than 40%).
I definitely prefer the regular Zacapa 23. The smokiness is interesting, but to me it doesn't enhance this rum.
Although most Zacapas are somehow special, this one is really special. I like the full flavour, dark oak, strong taste, all together matching and very good combined to a powerful dark rum. This is not for the romantic evening, this is for inspiring discussions and gatherings with humor and sense.
The taste has more oak to it than the original 23 years Zacapa.
It has a deeper/dark taste and not so sweet as the original 23y.
Defently a rebuy for my Rum Cabinet.
But it could do better. If you compare it to the XO version, I would advise you to pay a little more and be more satisfied. Although I can’t deny that every rum of Zacapa delivers, but this rum was not as smooth as it successors would suggest. Stil, compared to other distillers they might be just the best in the world and you can taste this in every bottle. Also in this one.
Good and streng flavour. Nice smell. I love the color.
The flavour is powerful with smoke and almost burnt fruits.
This is a great rum, a typical Zacapa, but so smooth...
In my book it´s a tie between this rum and the Zacapa XO !
It’s much like the “23”, very smooth as the “23”, but much more wood and not as nearly as sweet as the “23”. So I will choose this one 10 times out of 10 if I had to choose between them.
Very nice Smokey flavor and smell.. like others have said, little better than Zacapa 23. Would definitely recommend and buy again.. all of Ron Zacapa rums I’ve tried are great.
