Ron Zacapa Solera 23 Gran Reserva Rum 23 year old
Zacapa 23 contains 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 sistema solera ageing process. Appearance: Light mahogany, with the tones of long barrel ageing 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 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. Serving suggestions: Best enjoyed on a single large lump of pure, clear ice in a luxury rocks glass with a heavy base.
