Crafted in Guatemala, Zacapa Rum is a work of art, and an expression of patience, richness, quality, and master blending. Aged to perfection in the highlands of Quetzaltenango, Zacapa develops its complex flavor and character 7,500 feet above sea level in the mystical House Above the Clouds.
Zacapa 23 is a wonderfully intricate blend of rums from six to 23 years old.
This light mahogany colored rum has a nose of caramel, vanilla, cacao, and butterscotch. The layered aroma complexity comes from the solera process. The palate is 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 savory 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. (from Ron Zacapa)
