RON ZACAPA CENTENARIO SOLERA 23
Above the Clouds Lorena Vásquez, Zacapa Rum’s master blender, works 2,300m above sea level in Guatemala, where she combines aromas and flavours of slowly aged rums to create an exquisite blend.
Containing rums from 6 to 23 years old, Zacapa 23 is a complex Rum with layers of complexity - caramel, vanilla, cacao and butterscotch, combining with layers of flavour indicative of the different barrels in the solera process; sherried notes of caramelised, roasted brazil nuts and toasted hazelnut, and the characteristic rounded toffeed banana and dried pineapple of ex-American whiskey casks.
Wonderfully complex palate, 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.
