Ron Zacapa 23 Solera rum

Ron Zacapa 23 Solera

Guatemala | Aged | 40.0% ABV | Column Still (1-4) Distilled

Ron Zacapa 23 Solera Rum was created in 1976 in the highlands of Guatemala, where it is distilled in a copper-lined column still from fresh cane juice before solera aging.

The 500 year-old Spanish Sistema Solera method is used to age Ron Zacapa 23 in white oak casks. This results in a combination of rums aged between 6 and 23 years.

The current Ron Zacapa 23 bottle features a woven band around the middle, which is in reference to the original hand woven palm leaf petate bottle cover that covered the bottle.

I really was surprised, not much alcohol taste, mild, imple but good, maybe a bit boring. You can´t go wrong with it but you want have any wow with it neighter

The XV was a nice surprise to me. Brugal have tried to make a more smooth tasting rum, compared to their normal dry notes, and have done a nice job with this.

I was gifted a few bottles of different Brugal varieties, and this one was just alright. Nothing particularly memorable or notable, but it was not unpleasant.

Acceptable and I'd try again when I come across it.

Trying another new to me. Have had some good luck with Brugal in general, this was as expected. Smooth, not much bite straight but lacked overall flavor for me in a sipper. Excellent as a heavy pour with club soda

I let the label and the name convince me that I was having a bargain. Hey, I thought. A 15 year old rum for that price? The screw-top should have been a warning. Barely any aroma, nice soft sweetish taste, very light after-burn. Not that I didn't like it, but definitely not a sipping rum. Nice with some ice and a splash of soda, though.

That's exactly what this rum reminds me of. In fact, the resemblance is uncanny. Blindfolded, I couldn't tell you which was which. It's just fair, as rum goes. Not too challenging, not very complex, a little too sweet. There are many better rums out there.

Only tried it with coke. Nice, but not exceptional.

The core rum probably isn't that great, but the sherry finish adds a twist that this scotch fan can appreciate. Punches above its weight, especially in the Brugal family.

Zapach: Mleczny, waniliowy, kokos, cukierek krówka. Całość jest przyjemna, niezbyt intensywna oraz delikatna.

Smak: Delikatna słodycz - cukierek krówka, budyń waniliowy, tropikalne owoce, wyczuwalny wpływ beczek.

Smak tak jak i zapach - delikatny, nieskompilowane oraz przyjemny - bez nuty alkoholu.

Rum jest wysoce pijalny, nie przesłodzony - polecam choć cena w polsce jest delikatnie przegięta. Idealny jako premium mikser do koktajli oraz drinków. Legenda krążyła że jest to połączenie rumów 10cio oraz 5cio letnich - jednak traktowałbym to z przymrużeniem oka.

OCENA 75/100

This is still one of my top rums, so smooth and great flavour. It's a shame that it's really hard to get hold of currently
