Ron Zacapa Centenario Sistema Solera 23 (70cl, 40%)
Ron Zacapa Centenario Sistema Solera 23 Rum is an awesome rum – winner of a Platinum medal and ranked in First Place by the prestigious Beverage Testing Institute in Chicago, with a whopping 97 points. Interestingly, now that industry giants Diageo are distributing Zacapa, the ’23 years old’ age statement has suddenly been dropped and replaced with a somewhat more plausible claim – the rums used are aged between 6 and 23 years old and are blended together in a solera.
Nose: Great intensity, sweet with notes of wood. Sweet fruitiness, vanilla, almond, chocolate, toasted wood and delicate hints of spice.
Taste: Dense and exceptionally balanced, very long aftertaste.
Finish: Attractive and evocative. Elegant and noble.
