Lots going on here, great sipper. Really like it. Much better than the regular 23 Solera

Compared to "Zacapa Etiquette negra" I the Edition Negra is more smoky and spicy .
this rum is also very harmonious and has the typical Zacapa caramel flavors .

Im Vergleich zum Etiqueta negra empfinde ich den Edition Negra rauchiger und auch würziger.
Auch dieser Rum ist sehr harmonisch und hat die typischen Zacapa Karamell-Aromen.

A good smooth rum. It is very similar to the original with extra char and ash on the finish. I prefer the regular 23 solera. This rum is an 8 but i down graded it to a 7 because of the price.

Nice smell and taste full of chocolate and smoke. Very complex with long aftertaste. Much better than Zacapa 23y but still under Zacapa XO.


Wow what a flavor profile it definitely has those chocolate notes I have come to expect from Zacapa and hints of cinnamon any smother and you would be drinking water this is some Great stuff my new favorite go to

No rum collection should be without this one again Wow

I haven't tried the 23, but my understanding is that this is similar but aged in 2 different heavily smoked barrels. It has a very complex set of flavors and aromas, and when I first tried it, I didn't like it much and I even thought it had some kind of a smoked tomato-y hint which I thought was offputting. However as I've tried it more over the past few weeks, I have found many interesting nuances, and the initial impression has given way to a real appreciation. It is a different rum from any I've tried, and that took some time to get used to. Now I look forward to it, it has a beautiful precise sweetness, a flare of smoke, easily and nicely balanced.

There is nothing really special in this rum, it is bit stronger then Zacapa 23.

Sugar:est 18-20 GPL. In terms of flavour and rating the Edicion Negra his sits right between the Solera 23 and the Zacapa XO. A dark sipping rum with a taste profile contains the well known Caramel, oak, and vanilla flavours associated with the Zacapa line of rums. The Edicion Negra kicks it up the taste with some smoke from the charred barrels it is aged in, plus there are strong traces of leather, tobacco,and spice. This rum is a bit lower in the sweetness factor. When I first tasted this, I thought wow, this is good, perhaps equal to the Zacapa XO. However an immediate taste test concluded that it's not as good as the XO. Still damned good and well worth having in your collection.

I love the color, the smell and most importantly the taste. Fresh, smooth and smoky with just the right sweetness for my palette.

Liegt angenehm in der Nase,Gaumenfüllend
Schoko, Vanille, Trockenfrüchte, Banane, Rosinen

Ein recht typischer Zacapa, für Guatemala recht schwerer Rum mit einer klaren Süße, Schokolade und getrockneten Früchte als Hauptnote. Der Abgang wird von Vanille und einer leichten Phenolnote begleitet. Gut und gerne wieder.


This has all the good stuff from the 23 with more on top. More alcohol burn but so much more complexity. Smokey, oaky and delicious. The flavours stay in your mouth and develop for ages. Let it sit in the glass for a few minutes for optimum enjoyment.

Refined and delicious with a sweet after taste with smokey tones. I'm a massive fan of the 23 but this trumps it.
If you can find one buy it.

Au nez il y a du caramel et un soupçon de fumée. Au goût il y a de la cassonade, bois, chocolat et bien plus... Et on termine avec une finale tout en finesse

Tomo Zacapa solera 23 hace muchos años y siento que la calidad ha menguado. Sin embargo el último año me regalaron el Edición Negra y me volví a enamorar de Zacapa, miel guatemalteca!


I have added this one instead of the original solera 23. I find it more interesting in the taste and sent.


Smoked wooden tones, spicy, bourbon. Caramel, sweet touch. Mild for me, full taste. Stronger. Nice one.

Dark amber color with notes of vanilla, banana and butterscotch.

Like the Title sasys, Its basically a smoky big brother to the zacapa 23, but not overwhelming.

Purchased a sample from Master of Malt.

Lovely sipping rum from Zacapa. Bags of coffee and cacao on the nose. The same in the mouth with hints of spice and oak.

Spatnej rum to urcite neni, ale za ty penize mi to az zas takova pecka neprijde

too smoky and strong for me
I prefer other Zacapa editions

Nice smooth, delicious caramel. Looks sweet. Let’s taste it...

Wood! Don’t know how to explain this feeling, it looks like “very clean”, when you taste it. And after second you got this full of wood taste. Imagine clear waterfall coming from ground. Water is cold. And after that you got so strong oak taste.
I can’t say that this Rum is “super fantastic”, but it have some independence. This Rum is special, something different.

I give about 7,8 - 8,3

Förväntningar på denna var låg inför första gången jag provade den. Men oj så fel jag hade. Många som gillar whisky sägs gilla den här och jag är inte en whiskyfantast därav de låga förväntningarna. Men rökigheten som denna bjuder på är så perfekt och lagom att den placeras sig bland royalen. Royalen är dyrare absolut, och är bättre men denna får också en 9a pga att man får 3 av denna för priset av 1 royal.
