Ron Zacapa Sistema Solera 23 Rum
Add to Cart
Containing a blend of rums from 6 to 23 years old.
Keynote: Wonderfully intricate with honeyed butterscotch, spiced oak and raisined fruit, showcasing the complexity of the sisterma solera ageing process.
Appearance: Light mahogany, with the tones of long barrel aging at the rim and long, slow legs clinging to the glass.
Nose: A soft start which develops complexity in the glass; sweet aromas of caramel, vanilla, cacao, and butterscotch, combining with layers of flavor indicative of the different barrels in the solera process; sherried notes of caramelized, roasted brazil nuts and toasted hazelnut, and the characteristic rounded toffeed banana and dried pineapple of ex-American whiskey casks.
Palate: Wonderfully complex, generous, and full-bodied, with a sweet honeyed viscosity atypical of an aged spirit; a great depth of raisined fruit and apricot preserves, building to an intense heart of savoury oak, nutmeg, leather, and tobacco with notes of coffee and delicately sweet vanilla, balanced with a spicy touch of cinnamon and ginger on the pleasantly astringent finish; truly a rum for the discerning palate.
Best enjoyed on a single large lump of pure, clear ice in a luxury rocks glass with a heavy base.
Note: 50ml of Zacapa 23 contain 15.8 grams of alcohol
