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 did not find anything special about this rum. I liked it but not enough to buy another bottle, still have half left and it has been over 2 years. There is better Rum for less money.
Pour une petite 50aine d'euros, on a un très bon rhum, beaucoup d’arômes, assez sucré (trop?). C'est le rhum qui m'a fait découvrir le monde des rhums vieux.
Works straight up and in cocktails. It´s reputation is bigger that the rum. But still a good rum for all.
Very nice rum. Even that fact that it is ondt a very low percentage of 23 year old rum it is still an exelent glass of rum.
I like to keep an aged rum around in my home bar, and this bottle was so good, it did not last long at all. It definitely has a sweeter taste, but it is far from cloying. Very smooth, easy drinking. Great in mixed drinks where the base spirit can shine (makes a great Old Fashioned).
It's a decent buy. On the sweeter side. There are better, more complex solera rums out there for the same price I'd say.

"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.
