Ron Zacapa Centenario 23 - Guatemala

Ron Zacapa Centenario
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ron Zacapa Centenario is a popular premium rum produced in Guatemala.  Zacapa was created in 1976 to celebrate the centenary of the foundation of Zacapa, a town in eastern Guatemala.

It is made using the concentrated first pressing sugar cane juice, which is called virgin sugar cane honey, rather than molasses and is aged and blended using a unique aging system based on the solera method traditionally used for sherries. This process is overseen by master blender Lorena Vazquez. The company claims that part of their success lies in the fact that the barrels are stored 2,300 meters above sea level in an aging facility situated below the upper slopes of the mountains and volcanoes of Guatemala, where the temperature is an average of 62 degrees Fahrenheit.

Early Zacapa bottles came in a bottle covered in a petate - a handwoven matting made from palm leaves which dates from the Mayan period. More recently they feature a band around the middle of the bottle.

The rum has won awards from different international competitions and is the first rum to be included in the International Rum Festival’s Hall of Fame. The Beverage Testing Institute has given Zacapa a 95 point rating.

Very smooth, slightly sweet taste. There is maybe a hint of dark chocolate or coffee. It has a very powerful taste but the aftertaste is quite short.

This is definitely a high class spirit and is warmly recommended. I rate it at 5/5.

This was one of the first rums I tried and I still like it. Today I would rate it at 4/5 instead I think. It's nice and smooth but lacks a bit of character.

When I was new to rums, I also thought this as a pretty good rum.  These days, like you, I believe it lacks courage and is simply too sweet.  I guess it's a phase we all pass through :-)
