Rum from above the Clouds.

Ron Zacapa is named after a town in eastern Guatemala. Their plantation is located higher on the volcanic plains of Retalhuleu, 1148ft (350m) above sea level. Most Rums use molasses as their base, Zacapa, however, to impart a sweeter and smoother flavor, uses only the concentrated first press of sugar cane, known as virgin sugar cane honey. When it’s time to start the fermentation, a strain of yeast extracted from pineapples is used, which produces unique ‘Zacapa’ aromatic compounds. 

The Rum is then distilled at sea level in continuous column stills and moved higher into the mountains where the maturation takes place. In the highlands of Quetzaltenango, 7544ft (2.300m) above sea level, lies The House Above the Clouds. This stunning location – one of the highest ageing facilities in the World – is where Zacapa slowly develops its complex flavor and character over time. After the initial three years of maturation in a solera system, the Rum is transferred to large American white oak casks for an additional year, before they're finally bottled. Rums between 6 and 23 years old are used in the blend of Ron Zacapa Solera 23.

Smartass corner:
The lower atmospheric pressure helps intensify the infusion of flavors from the barrels. Barrels previously used for ageing Bourbons, Sherries and Pedro Ximénez wine are used.

Appearance / Color
Mahogany with coppery tints.
 
Smell / Nose / Aroma
Caramel, vanilla, cocoa, cinnamon, toffee coated bananas, orange peel and fruitiness reminiscent of a cognac.

Sweet all the way, strong apple/cognac flavors, sweet honeyed viscosity, oak, vanilla, dried fruits and some liquorice, spicy touch of cinnamon and ginger. Hugely concentrated.
 
Finish
The finish is long and smooth, sugary with vanilla, coffee, smoke and honey and it has the tiniest amount of marzipan creeping up to the palate.
