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.

After years of drinking Captain Morgan's, I decided to step up my game and try Diplomatico. Wow, what a dramatic difference. Having had my eyes (and palate) opened, I opted to try Ron Zacapa. After all, it's being plugged all over the internet. So it must be wonderful, right?

OMG, what a letdown. Sugar-water, anyone? Everything I loved about Diplomatico is missing. The gloriously complex bouquet, the graduated flavors, the satisfying finish . . . gone. And if the other comments are to be believed, this distiller uses additives. Are you kidding? If you're distilling with honor and tradition, why would you ever need additives?

And to add insult to injury, the bottle I purchased cost ten dollars more than the Diplomatico. Sure, the box and bottle are both handsome. But that doesn't compensate for the underwhelming lack of sophistication known as Ron Zacapa 23 Solera.

I only wish I had discovered this website BEFORE I made my purchase. In fact, I was so angry once I read the other reviews I decided to join just so I could enhance the negative rating of this disappointing pollution pretending to be a premium rum. Don't believe the major news outlets that hype Ron Zacapa. THIS is the website that tells it like it is: Ron Zacapa 23 Solera is HIGHLY OVERRATED.

Der Rum wird von vielen gelobt, doch für mich ist er leider nichts. Dafür ist er viel zu "scharf", trocken und würzig.

Ein wahnsinnig überbewerteter Rum, der mit seinem zugesetzten Zucker, seiner Färbung und der missverständlichen Altersangabe ein falsches Spiel mit dem Kunden spielt.

An insanely overrated rum that plays a false game with the customer with its added sugar, coloring and misleading age statement.

Very deceiving rum period. It's like lets mix and match and pray. I can hear them saying "Those idiots see the 23 & its a sale". Steer clear of this mismatch. Let me add that I see alot of high ratings? If I was a beginner (novice) I might misjudge this also. Sorry my rating stands!

Ein Rum ohne Vielseitigkeit und ohne deutlichen Geschmacksnoten. Hergestellt um jedermann zu schmecken....

This was one of my first 50 euro plus bottles so I was stoked to get into it - and I got really disappointed. Absolutely not worth the price. For 50 bucks there are way better rums to be had.

egyértelműen megállapítottuk, hogy a sznobizmus által felmagasztalt rum, mi is nagy várakozással kortyoltunk bele, talán kár volt (ez volt a második rum, amit kóstoltunk) a SPYTAIL után kóstolni, mert fura pofákat vágtunk az első korty után :)

Neck pour was decent. After that a sickly sweetness developed. Didn’t like drinking this much sugar without knowing.

Sugar, sugar, sugar - if this is your first real rum experience no wonder people associate one-legged pirates with rum. Sugar overload, not an authentic rum. Made for masses and it sells. Buy some real Jamaican, Barbadian or an agricole instead :)

Really disappointed with this one. Nothing positive to say at all. Barely good enough for mixing.
