Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Tasted this at the bar in town, did not try the whole bottle yet...It is still expensive, but not for that taste.
So, if you want to try something good and sweet, I recomend shot of this.
I first came across Zacapa 23 when I was working in Grand Cayman. It blew my mind ay the time. Since that time Zacapa has become so mass produced that it has lost its special appeal. It is sold now at my local costco. The flavor profile has changed. It’s the best rum to get whiskey drinkers interested in rum but it is no longer my go to.
Dunkel goldene Farbe. Sehr weicher Abgang. Leicht süßlich mit fruchtiger Note. Sehr zu empfehlen.
I'm 42 years old and have been a rum lover most of my life. However, I have a very cheap taste and usually just drink Bacardi Silver and diet soda. I'm no connoisseur and aside from a floater in a frozen Pina Colada don't really enjoy dark rum of any kind, regardless of the origin. That being said, I came across this rum via a single shot glass bottle that my parents had in their liquor cabinet, likely from some event years ago that was never consumed. I can tell you without any hesitation that I am hoooked. This rum is a wet dream in a bottle. If you like rum and don't give this a try, you're totally missing out. I'd pay double what this costs. I've never tasted anything like it. Although, I must confess, I feel sacrilegious by combining it with Diet Pepsi. On my honor as a man, try this - you will be happily surprised.
This rum is just not my style, it had too much whiskey flavour - which I don't quite like. I was disappointed, probably mainly because of high expectations. I gave almost full bottle to my friends which made them happy.
Had an amazing back-to-back tasting opportunity with the Zacapa White Label and Black Label. These are genuine 23 old rums and nothing to do with the current Solera aged Zacapa's. Price tag at close to EUR 500 per bottle is outrageous. Bottle and label design with the palm tree wrap is truly unique. Dark mahogany color. White Label is smoother and less smokier than the Black Label.
Nádherný základ, od ktorého sa dá merať kvalita iných rumov.
Introduced to this 20 years ago. Aleays pleased to find bars that carry it.
Nothing special on the smell, seems pretty average to me. The taste is also average nothing really special to report I'm not picking up anything in particular, just middle-of-the-road in my opinion
First time i rasten it i did not like it. Now it starts to grov on me.
Un très bon rhum qui mérite d'être goûté, peut être un peu cher.
Really a masterpiece. Sipper only, never mix with coke
This is a first for me. Guatemalan rum. I was pleasantly surprised but wanted to bring back a great rum from a recent cruise. I made the right choice. I paid $55 in St Maartin. It is well worth the price and the quality in an aged rum is there. I may have to move my rating to a nine.
Had the chance to sample this rum at a party. Normally too rich for my pocket book. This is the best I've had so far in my rum adventure. I can't imagine finding one that would be much better than this one. Of course I will keep looking. If this is the only rum I was allowed drink for the rest of my life than count me happy!! I will find a way to get more of this one. Beg, Borrow or Steal.
Sur la cassonade, la crème brulée, le caramel, le bois et une touche de vanille. Une belle complexité en bouche
Ein sanfter vollmundiger Rum.
Ein Traum, nach Sandstrand duftend. Weich und wie Samt im Mund und lang im Abgang. Mit etwas Eis öffnet er sich ganz.
Heb een fles gekocht op AirPort van Cancún, bij thuis komst gelijk geproefd, heb spijt dat ik maar 1 fles heb meegenomen
For me this is a "Rum of 2 halves"
Initial sip is lovely, sweet, musky, caramely , with hints of oak.
But the flavour sadly doesn't stay, but seems to dissipate into a slightly harsh alcohol after-taste.
Its still a good rum in my opinion, but a bit let down by the finish.
Le meilleur centenario que j'ai goûté. Mais il est trop cher par rapport à d'autres rhum tout aussi bon.
Un ron que no se puede permitir no tenerlo... un ronero que aprecia lo bueno no despeediciara la oportunidad
Guatemalan rum, blended using the solera system. Sublime stuff. This was matured in a mix of bourbon and sherry casks.
Nose: sweet and nutty, honey and chocolate. Dark brown sugar, gentle smoke. Pipe tobacco.
Palate: sweet and soft. Dark brown sugar, molasses, rounded.
Finish : Thick, medium length, hint of smoke on the tail.
I may have expected too much from this selection after reading the reviews here . It’s good but not I would still select a few others over this one in this price range like the Plantation 20th anniversary
Zacapa Centenario 23, wrapped in palm leaves, 2 medals
Fantastisk duft og eftersmag.
Havde kun råd til 5 cl. ;-/
For all the grand reviews and all the prestige, this was kind of disappointing. Nose has some oakiness and brown sugar, taste has a sweet woodiness. Molasses emerges on the finish with something reminiscent of a dryer sheet. Over all, the components are fine, there's nothing offensive here, but this rum feels really weak. There's no power behind, no punch to pack, it's just kind of there. When it comes to old, aged rums, I want a full experience, and this one just didn't deliver.
