By far my favorite. The smokeyness and smoothness is amazing. I would have to order multiple bottles at a time to get it in. But it was well wort it.

I have added this one instead of the original solera 23. I find it more interesting in the taste and sent.

This is a great Zacapa, a little bit smoky. Much better than the 23. It's more matured, more intensive and heavier.
It's between the old Zacapas and the XO. It's not as balanced as XO, but it's intensive .

Smell: oak, caramel, mandarine, some herbs and smoked BBQ, dry fruits (plum)
Taste: Starts with caramel, barrel/wood, dry fruits, then some smoke appear with some tannins. It tastes like BBQ smoke, not like ash or islay finish.
I like this tasty smoked aroma.
Finish: spice, date, burned sugar, wood and some smoke

Sweetness: 3/5
Spice: 3/5
Fruits: 3/5
Mildness: 3.5/5
Value (47€): 4/5
Experience level: professional

My top 10 Zacapas:
Aniversario 30
Zacapa XO
Edition Negra
Royal (too expensive)
Limitada 2019
Zacapa 23

One of the best I ever tasted... Ofcourse such things can't be discussed, however, just try and you'll see πŸ˜‰

The Zacapa Edicion Negra is a darker and more full flavour version of the original Zacapa 23 Solera. It has the same spiced treacle-flavour, but it is more intense and full bodied while being less intense at the same time, which makes it feel more balanced and enjoyable.
It is neck and neck however, so either one is a perfect drinking companion.

Love this rum. It has a nice fruity complexity with some really nice charred under tones, very subtle smokeyness. I think it would be interesting to see what could be done with a longer ageing and how it would taste cask if it was stronger like 50 Abv.

This one is smooth and finishes nicely! What a pleasure!

Ron Zacapa have managed to create a rum that does taste different to any other rum. That's not so easy to do. It's not that it has any one particular element that makes this happen. More it is the combination of the elements. So what you get is a strong mix of leather, smoke, charring, chocolate, oak and vanilla - with none of them pushing out the others. There is also a bit of burn in there which I like.
It's a very good sipping rum - much more bitter than the 23, whilst retaining some sweetness.
I like it very much and managed to pick up a bottle in Gibraltar for about 60% of the UK retail price.
