Antique gold colour; crème brulee, toffee and spice aromas; toffee and vanilla flavours with smooth, soft spice finish
Aromas of oak, Christmas spice and caramel fudge. Flavours of nutmeg, toasted hazelnut and a hint of caramel with a long smooth finish.
Has the brown/chestnut appearance of older oloroso sherry; unblemished clarity. Opening sniffs encounter deep scents of brown sugar and toffee; six more minutes add succulent aromas of candied walnut, toasted marshmallow, treacle and dark, old honey. Entry is round, supple, oily and creamy in texture, with highlights of burnt sugar and cocoa; midpalate is suddenly quite earthy, grassy and lean, with pocket flavors of treacle and marzipan. Concludes medium-long, sappy bittersweet and almost nutty/nougaty.
Ron Zacapa contains a blend of rums from six to 23 years old. Wonderfully intricate with honeyed butterscotch, spiced oak and raisined fruit. It's a perfect example showcasing the complexity of the Solera aging process.
