Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Very smooth, rich, very little burn. The cognac casks it was finalized in gives it a unique palette for a rum. Delicious. Newer bottle.
This is a very good zipper. Mild sweetness. Beats a Cognac hands down for me.
I had this as I was curious and had it after an amazing beef wellngton in London. It was suprise to me and I started to enjoy good and better rum from there on..
I was dining at a pretty high end establishment which happened to have an extensive list of rums on their menu. This one jumped out at me, it was the highest price on the list soon thought I would splurge. It was a nice full flavored rum, a bit of a bourbon flavor but not overwhelming. Not sure it was much better than the other rims I have tried for half the price, but it was a good experience to order the top shelf stuff.
Yes, this one really shows, what it has. Full flavour with little sweetness, smooth and fully developed.
Not easy to stop sipping, very nice...
Had this straight up and it was outstanding. Smooth as can be.
If you like a sweet treat after your meals, this is the go-to rum. In nose: vanilla, caramel, and some hints of oak. In mouth: super smooth (almost no alcohol feeling), caramel, banana, and dried fruits. Aftertaste: woody and sweet.
Personally, I found it almost too sweet for my taste in rums. However, it is well worth to have a bottle at hand.
Really smooth rum. Hard not to finish the bottle in one go.
At US$120 a bottle, this rum is on the steep end price wise. But it is so worth it. Dark golden brown colour invites you to taste it. Hints of caramel and oak. Light burn going down with fruity aftertaste. One of my top ten sipping rums.
caramel, molasse, sweet, that is for sure, but great to sip after a nice dinner.Nice designed bottle.
Nose is candied oak and honey fruits. The taste is really lovely.Molasses, sauteed bananas, caramel, vanilla... This really is a perfect rum. Soft in taste and lasts longer. No burn. Nice design
Perfect. Nose is candied oak and honey fruits. The taste is really lovely. A little sting and tongue tingle ay the start and finish. The main taste is beautiful. Molasses, sauteed bananas, caramel, vanilla... This really is a perfect rum.
Tastes like nothing else I've tried so couldn't decide on an 8 or a 9. Sexy bottle, great aroma and unique flavours. Want to offer an 8.5 but I can't.
I’m glad I upsold myself from zacapa 23 to zacapa xo! The extra $5/shot was well worth it.
Amazing intense nose of sugar cane and vanilla. On the palate, molasses and vanilla, maybe even a bit of orange peel. No burn whatsoever, amazingly smooth. I need to add a bottle to my inquiry cabinet!
From the purchase to drinking it, great quality product.
Bold taste with smooth finnish. Best stored in a freezer and sipped straight.
Many people I have shared this with think it is a high end cognac.
For me... Very smooth.. Little bit sweet.. Full body, nice colour..
I’m new to sipping rums, but find this to be such a flavorful, warm rum that leaves such a pleasurable finish, I’m off the scotch. Drinking this rum has enticed me to start a collection and over the last month has expanded to 7 bottles. The Zacapa is still 1 of the top 2.
Vůně je velmi příjemná. Chuť jemná s ostřejším dozvukem.
Kann ich nur empfehlen auch wenn der Preis schon eine Knacknuss sein kann.
Character beyond belief! Rich in taste aroma and color with an aftertaste that makes you want to sip one more. This is Guatemala's gift to the world.
Different newer bottle, no premio platino, but is the centenario XO. Smooth and sweet. Minimal burn. Nice aroma, and easy to sip on.
Nose: bit woody, full alcohol, little caramel
Taste: toffee/caramel, bit of chocolate and very smooth aftertaste
