Ron Zacapa XO

Guatemala | Aged | 40.0% ABV

Ron Zacapa XO Rum is produced in the highlands of Guatemala where it is distillled from fresh cane juice.

A very cultivated, in all aspects tasty & well smelly rum, awesomely packed as a bonus, but little too pricey for a regular heyday time

Tasty, nuanced rum with barrel character and little sweetness, hints of dried fruit, maple syrup, nuts and herbs.

I've tried the Zacapa XO in direct comparison with the Zacapa 23 and Zacapa Negra at the Casa de Ron in Guatemala and can surmise that I am not impressed. In a blind tasting, I couldn't confidently distinguish the 23 and XO, so I cannot see why the XO has a 3 times higher price tag (at least here in Guatemala). I think I could smell out the Cognac notes in the XO, but it was very little difference to the 23. All in all not worth the money, I would rather spent it on a Diplomático Exclusivo or Dictador 20 (or just the regular Zacapa 23). You could get two out of these 3 bottles for the same price and definitely enjoy it more.

Way too expensive for what it is, was actually happy when it ended.
Low ABV, feels diluted and bitter

Truly a great tasting rum! A little on the sweeter side with a little bite at the end.

Not much to say here except the flavor here is rich and bold, leaves a very satisfying taste at the back of your palate. We killed 2 bottles of this on my patio.

Price value isn’t good at Zacapa rums. It’s the second I tried and again.. If you smell the rum your eyes opens wide. It’s something exited but if you taste it’s quite flat and no long aftertaste what I really miss. Not that it’s bad or something but u can buy something more rich tasting for that money.

I got this on special for $150 aud on the nose brown sugar and alcohol it's a nice dry rum without the taste of extra sugar smooth without to much burn with a pleasing after-taste good but not as good as expected with the hype and in its price range I wouldn't recommend it

Avast! Havin' had the Ron Zacapa 23, I can tell you that this be even better. She be sweet smellin', but not terribly so. There be a spiciness to her with some oak, caramel, and, unless I am mistook, a hint of sweet crisp apple. Real delicate like. On the tongue, she be extra smooth with a lot of flavor and not much burn goin' down the hatch. She not be terribly sweet, but not dry, and there be a bit of spice, burned sugar, some oak, a hint of smoke... and again with the apple at the very end. Curse me for a lubber, the apple were the biggest surprise. This be a real mature rum with lots to offer. Given the price of this beast, you might be thinkin' about savin' your coin for more economical rum choices. This one be worth a shot, mates. Even if it only be one shot, make it count!
