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'm no rum expert but for me it was too sweet in a weird way, With no real taste and the smell was horrific
It tooks me 1 year to finish the bottle and i finish it in a cocktail with some Kahlúa (coffee liquor). The problem about this ron there is no amazing flavor or complexity it is very simple and by definition may be easy to drink. Final is very short, not a memorable one for sure. Definitly not buy anymore will go instead for the Botran 18 from Guatelema too but much more complex and well worked.
Lo probe y para mi era demasiado dulce. No me gusto
Price, packaging, botte all is made to attract the eye. But don't open it!
How deceiving is the rum !
In my mind, the greasy note of coconut is the most disapointing taste offre this rum.
Overall, I don't understand the 23 years old, it's a blend not a single barrel ! Time is lost.
The bottle is now empty, the secret is soda, large amounts of the well known soda!
Prijde mi jako o neco jemnejsi 12 lety Eldorado, vzhledem k cene a vseobecnemu hodnoceni pro me celkem zklamani...
Po pomalem nabirani zkusenosti ve svete rumu. Musim hodnoceni snizit. Treba lidem jednou dojde, ze krome kavy, se i prave srdce rumu pozna, pokud neni zkazeno extra cukrem.
zacapa is so famous last years, but sooo sweet, better try botran, same distillery but no sugar added
The rum is honestly not too bad. I would give it maybe a 5-6 but it's impossible to tell what it really is. Too dark to be natural, sugar added no doubt. This might be good if it was a pure rum but for no3. 3, needs improvement
Sampled this rum but the sweetness Seems to hide any resemblance of a true Rum. Obviously enjoyed by many but this is not for me.
For the money there are so many other more exiting bottles.
Actually quite dry and oaky.
"Flavour builds if you leave the rum in your mouth for a little longer allowing it to coat the palate."
Wonderfully intricate with honeyed butterscotch, spiced oak and raisined fruit...

"The interplay between the wood of the barrel and the liquor contents gives the alcohol its flavour, colour and character..."
"Ron Zacapa Solera 23 rum review by Peter from the Floating Rum Shack"
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.

Not a 23 yr aged rum 3 out of 10
I've tried Zacapa 23 on many occasions. It's loaded with extra sugar or something and it's not at all a 23yr aged rum. I'm not easy to please and this falls short. Way short. I do give a great deal of credit to Zacapa for opening the eyes of buyers vs products like Bacardi and Capt Morgan. Notice that most people put coke in those. I just want to sip neat.
