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.
45€/10.2023. Солера 23 си заслужава парите. Но явно има добавени захар и карамел за цвят. На кой му пука какво слагат, след като вкуса е идеален.
This one is the one that got me into rum. Like most Americans, I've only had the most basic rums that have been used as mixers and not something worth truly sipping.
I'm still new in the "world of rum", but the Zacapa is the one that made me think of rum as something else than something to mix with coke (the beverage...). Still one of the best I have tasted
Although, had they dosed it a bit more, it'd be a liqueur. The premium price tag and misleading solera age statement (given that the average age of this rum is closer to six years) don't help in making me like it. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't taste bad by any means. A few shots of this, preferably chilled, would surely get the party started. Alas, jägermeister does the same job at 40€ less.
Overall, it's perfect if you don't care about money, or diabetes.
I was sure it's the pinnacle of rums below 70 euro. A jewel of the supermarket/discount stores genre. I don't know why - it's just look like it.
At first - still being a rum greenhorn - I was obviously enamoured. Elegant and sweet, plus the phrase "virgin sugarcane honey" surely crancked up my overall feelings.
But after reading the most popular reviews here, I started to thought that yes, it's a bit "too much" of everything. Too sweat, too polished. And yes, it's a great liquor, but a kinda fake rum with those huge amounts of sugar and misleading "23 YO" sign.
I'll gladly drink every drop from my bottle, but since discovering, what Zacapa 23 is like (and knowing it's just very expensive), I'm not sure I'm going to buy it again.

"The interplay between the wood of the barrel and the liquor contents gives the alcohol its flavour, colour and character..."

Decanted, the rum displays a surprising body in the glass for something so apparently light, and has slow and strong legs down the side of the glass.
