Ron Zacapa XO rum

Ron Zacapa XO

Guatemala | Aged | 40% ABV

Ron Zacapa XO Rum is produced in the highlands of Guatemala where it is distillled from fresh cane juice. The rum is then aged from 6 to 23 years at 7544 feet above sea level at 62 °F (17 °C) using the solera process. The solera aging process incorporates barrels that previously held American whiskeys, sherries, wines and Cognac

The unique Ron Zacapa XO glass decantur features an impression of 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 Zacapa XO adds a last round of aging to the process that produces Zacapa's Solera 23 rum. In spite of the longer aging, I am simply not all that convinced by the output.

It is a really nice sipping rum, make no mistake. It is pleasant on the palate, complex in flavour profile, and an interesting drink. It is just not worth the extra money as compared to the Solera 23, which to my palate is a preferable drink at a noticably lower price.

Similar to the 23yr the XO has many of the same elements that come through probably due to the solera ageing only this time its older and has more of woody nose with more of a hint of tobacco and rich caramel. Still beautifully smooth with that long, lingering finish.

I got this for a relatively good price of $49, I have seen it for $80-100 in most places.

I like this better than the 23 yr which I find a little sweet for my taste, though both are very good. (Both are significantly sweetended with added sugar.) Not sure I would rebuy it even for the price I paid, but it was great to try once.

Gorgeous bottle / decanter with a classy heavy stopper.

I love the bottle and the rum is top notch. I would drink the Zacapa 23 for half the price, but this is a must have for speical ocassions... like Saturdays.

A good rum, but too similar to the 23 to justify the price increase

My favourite rum so far! Smooth without being harsh, woody without being dull. Dates soaked in this rum with grape on a cracker is rum food perfection!

Fantastic presentation of the rum, the bottle reminds me of cognac bottles.

Regarding the rum:
Very nice, a good sipper here and there with some edges, not too smooth and not too sweet, but still something for the sweeter ones under us, but if you compare only the rum (the liquid) itself with the Zacapa 23 Anos, then I would choose the 23 Anos over this one.
