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.
The rum to start with, but also the rum you'll never stop drinking. I see a few claims here that this a not a rum. Don't listen to them, I think that's a ridiculous thing to say! It's important to note that a lot of the reviews here are quite old, and Zacapa have reduced the sugar content from well over 40 grams per liter to about 20. Still quite sugary, but the rum sure has gained a lot of complexity since the change, while still being exceptionally smooth.
Like many of the better aged rums, this one has delicious caramel and molasses tasting notes with a hint of vanilla on the nose. The alcohol sneaks onto the palate to cut the sugar, exhibiting a mildly peppery finish. On the rocks, this rum expresses more sweetness than when served straight up. Served straight up, the alcohol is slightly more pronounced. Either way, this is a nicely balanced sipper.
Very nice and smoothe rum. A balanced sweetness with just a hint of dryness in the finish. Find it a bit overrated though.
Min introduktion til rommens verden. Dejlig sød og ikke voldsomt sprittet. En fyldig rom der alligevel ikke er vildt kompleks. En rigtig dejlig all-around rom man ikke behøver tænke for meget over.
This is one rum that I enjoy and I don't mind that it not a hot rum anymore. It's become widely availible now'a'days.
It has subtle and balanced spice notes, a bit og sweetness that leaves a fine "fatty" mouthfeel.
It's a must try, but there a better and more interesting ones around.
"The interplay between the wood of the barrel and the liquor contents gives the alcohol its flavour, colour and character..."
