In a nutshell:
A superb, full bodied, intense and smooth Guatemalan rum aged in a mix of whisky, sherry and wine barrels.
This super premium rum is blended from rums aged for between 6 and 23 years in the cool air of Ron Zacapa's cellars high in the Guatemalan highlands. Ageing is done in a solera system (as employed in Jerez for Sherry) where young rums are added to the top layer with eldest being drawn from the bottom for blending and bottling. This creates a rum with a great balance of aromas and flavours. It's wonderfully smooth with mature fruits, nutmeg, cocoa and liquorice on the nose while in the mouth it's really warming with smoky and creamy vanilla notes showing among the complex range of flavours. Intense and well balanced it's a very rewarding rum.
