Zacapa Centenario 23 Year Old Rum


Zacapa Centenario 23 Year Old Rum ($45) is a first-class Guatemalan rum made from virgin sugar cane honey. The first press of the sugar cane is boiled down to thicken, rather than molasses, which is a byproduct of the sugar-making process. This results in a finer, sweeter, smoother rum. The Zacapa Centenario is very dark, (think mahogany with coppery tints) and has a clove, cocoa, cinnamon and orange peel-scented nose. Be sure to sip this one straight. The palate is sweet and smooth with cocoa, orange and honey flavors all wrapped up in a sensuous, viscous texture. The finish is long and smooth. When you drink this rum, swirl the liquid and watch the viscous, honeyed legs gently cascade down the side of the glass.
