An awesome rum – winner of a Platinum medal and ranked in First Place by the prestigious Beverage Testing Institute in Chicago, with a whopping 97 points. Interestingly, now that industry giants Diageo are distributing Zacapa, the '23 years old' age statement has suddenly been dropped and replaced with a somewhat more plausible claim – the rums used are aged between 6 and 23 years old and are blended together in a solera.

Judges' Comments from The International Cane Spirits Festival 2007
Nose full or apricots, citrus fruits, vanilla, cocoa and bourbon; rich and full-bodied with spicy chocolate flavors and a pleasing tannic bite; very long finish, clean and rich with a lovely liqueur-like density.
Award: Gold Medal, Best In Category (Aged Rums 15+ Years Old)
Producer's Tasting Notes
Colour: Dark Mahogany.
Body: Dense, with marvellous complexities of aroma and flavour; thick legs that fall slowly.
Nose: Great intensity, sweet with notes of wood. Sweet fruitiness, vanilla, almond, chocolate, toasted wood and delicate hints of spice.
Taste: Dense and exceptionally balanced, very long aftertaste.
Finish: Attractive and evocative. Elegant and noble.

Great stuff, rich and with plenty of depth and complexity. But, it is also hugely sweet, to a degree that it''s almost more like a liqueur than a spirit. Still, a lovely sip if you''re in the mood.
A very good sipping rum, served neat!
excellent ''bargain'' ! this isn''t your everyday ''rum''.....highly recommended
Excellent 23 yr old rum! A must buy and drink on the rocks or from the freezer. I''ve tried various rums and this is the best I''ve tried.
Especially good when accompanying anything chocolate.
just finished a bottle. had my rum friends round for a rum night there were about six rums on offer inc mount gay xo and el dorado 15 yr. Did a blind taste test with them all, we all chose RZ 23 as the best. there so much going on in the flavours and it is delivered so cleanly WOW WOW WOW!
This is to me the #2 best rum of all time after Barbancourt "Reserve de domain" Just add ice and drink it on the rocks. NEVER put a mix with this classic.
The big daddy, the one they all talk about!! It's sweet, not complex, and a hint of burn (such as you would expect from a younger rum). If you like your rum sweet and simple, you can't go wrong with this (though there are cheaper to be had that offer the same e.g. Plantation Gran Anejo Guatemala Rum). I bought a 1 litre bottle from duty free over a year ago, and it's still languishing in my cupboard...
I have tried many rums over the time and I think this is the best rum I have had to date.
