Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Ron Zacapa 23 Solera Rum was created in 1976 in the highlands of Guatemala, where it is distilled from fresh cane juice before aging at 7544 feet at 62 °F (17 °C).
The 500 year-old Spanish Sistema Solera method is used to age Ron Zacapa 23 in white oak casks. This results in a combination of rums aged between 6 and 23 years.
The current Ron Zacapa 23 bottle features a woven band around the middle, which is in reference to the original hand woven palm leaf petate bottle cover that covered the bottle.
Por eso mi calificación, podría haberle dado un 8 pero lo que cuesta es para algo más, tiene esos 40 grados y muchos tonos de sabor, este desde luego es un desperdicio mezclarlo son 39'90€ lo que me costó.
Without a doubt one of the best blended and flavorful rums in the world, would classify it with Pyrat rum as my two favorite and this is coming from a person who’s tasted the best from around the world
Good rum, good taste, a little expensive compared to Diplomatico
Not very sweet. Reminds me of whisky. Some complexity in the flavor, seems a bit sour to me. Flavor: predominantly wood, some caramel. Nose: wood, vanilla
Odeur de caramel, vanille, et un goût à l'identique, légèrement boisé. Jolie rondeur, une belle longueur en bouche, mais le sucre vient un peu gâcher la fête. Dommage.
Some caramel and vanilla smell, which are also un the taste, with some wood too. A round and "comfortable rhum, but the sugar just spoils the pleasure. Unfortunately.
Probably my second favorite rum after Kirk and Sweeny 18. Yeah it's sweet and has additives, but that's actually what I like about it. The snobs can kiss off. Great sipping with dinner.
It really suprised me. Sweet taste and lots of flavours to taste
A complex, large bouquet, with an atypical viscosity for a mature assortment, dominated by aromas of raisins, apricots, walnut, tobacco leaves, coffee, vanilla and cinnamon.
Dark colour, strong oaky smell, caramel taste and a smooth full aftertaste. Its a good rum to sip on for a while.
Very popular, however full of aditives, sugar and so on.
This I could drink all day. One of the best sipping rums ever. No burn at all.
This is not a bad rum. But... I was hoping for a real competitor to Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva. Zacapa pales in a side-by-side taste test.
Received this as a gift and was not disappointed. Great quality and sweet notes that fit perfectly with a cigar. However, it may be a bit sweet for some. Subtracted a point because it's flavoured and not pure, but still a great product overall.
Nice, rich and oaky rum. I'd rather said too oaky. Strong vanilla and cardamon bite from the glass. overly sweet, but good to start with, if you used to sip whiskey/brandy.
It can't work well, if you are going to mix it. It's not bad nor ugly. This one is good enough to be a gift for someone important (maybe yr boss), but in search of the better sipping experience and love for Zacapa - go for "Limitada Reserve".
Not the right choice, overrated liquer, sweet.....
Lot more flavor than would expect at 40%. Smooth and tasty.
I have enjoyed this rum a few times. It impresses company. It’s a must try, but for the price there are other I prefer more.
Facile à boire, sur des notes de caramel, il est intéressant de gouter ce rhum élevé en haute altitude
Production: Blend, solera
Material: Virgin Sugar Cane Honey
Barrel: Bourbon and sherry
Master Blender: Lorena Vásquez
Smell: dried fruits (plums, raisins), wood, burnt sugar, withered fruits.
The alcohol is noticeable (I let it stand for 10 minutes before drinking), very pleasant sweetness in the smell.
Flavor: caramel, burnt sugar, sweetness, fruits, spice, slightly bitterness from the wood.
It's very intensive, I love this one.
Sweetness: 3.5 / 5
Spice: 2 / 5
Fruit: 4 / 5
Mildness: 3 / 5
What's special: Aged and blended in the 'House Above the Clouds', 2300m above sea level at 17° degree.
Virgin sugarcane honey is produced from the first press of ripened sugarcane.
What means virgin? naturally-occurring sugars have not been extracted from the cane stalks.
Well well well 3 holes in the ground. NICE.
Soft and smooth drink at 1st then the alcohol kicks in for a second then the pleasure of this rhum melts in your mouth.
One of the best I have tried. Bit to sweeter side. Very smooth.
Originally I had tasted this rum in 2018 and would have given it a 9. However, after having the XO in Guatemala it was definitely a 8.5. In Guatemala is is basically used for mixing and the XO for sipping (if you have the money). It has a nice bite and a very good after taste.
Chocolate and vanilla, smooth and well shaped with sweetness syrup Caramel light oak, and a little orange taste
Pre mňa podobná voľba ako Diplomatico 12YO. I keď charakterovo o čosi menej sladký. Komerčná záležitosť od Zacapy,ktorá neurazí,no tiež neoslni. V porovnaní s inými rumami v tomto veku zaostáva.
