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.

First thing I get in the nose is oak then sweet sugar. Vanilla and perhaps hints of caramel. Alcohol as well.
The flavor is sweet but I don't find it cloying. Vanilla and oak come through in the flavor and some other intangibles I can't put my finger on. Warming but not at all hot.
I find this easy to sip. Not a purists rum by any means but it wouldn't be hard to drink for the majority of the populace. I judge it for what it is, a fine wide appeal rum that is easy to sip and enjoy if we don't try to compare it with a fine unadulterated Jamaican or Bayan rum.
I guess what I don't like is that it's not transparent in it's additives. We need to understand the difference between what unadulterated rum and what sugar added rum is.
I find this a bit overpriced for what it is when we can buy many other fine Jamaican and Bayan rums for almost half the cost, but it is flavorful and I enjoyed it. A couple of ounces over a cube of ice makes a fine end to an evening.

I love this stuff. It does have a bit of an alcohol taste and kick, but once you get past that there are some wonderful flavours; apples, hints of citrus, very "clean" and zesty . I will buy this again.

Had the pleasure of drinking some agricole rhums directly at Martinique, this one is a huge surprise! I don't care girls think it's too harsh, this if what agricole should taste like, even though finish could be more interesting. Won't screw up your mixed drink, even though I wouldn't pick this one purely for mixing, but you people know how thinks work once it's late in the night.

4 yrs old - very nice smell and color, totally authentic taste of sugar cane - so typical for agricole rhums. I love it. It is a bit stronger while including only 42% alc.,
but idealky sweet at the same time. I like drinking it after tough days at work, though. Definitelly, it can be recommended!!

I can’t even really taste that it’s agricole because the wood is so overpowering.

The first smell is very sweet, glue and fruit, quite nice. The taste is at first not so sweet, rather dry. Later on it gets sweeter in the mouth. The finish is mild and quite long.

Rhum sans exception bien que assez appréciable après un bon temps d aération. Les saveurs se font bien plus ressentir mais il faut donc être patient.

Wasn't really in my wheel house. Liquor forward and not a bunch of depth. Not horrible either, Save it for the cocktails

I love agricole for the delicious grassy notes and fresh feel you get from it . This is kind of combining a young oak barrel aged rum and agricole and simply is not what agricole is about ... I may revist this in a ti punch to see if it's any better
