The stunning special release from Ron Zacapa XO Rum. This Guatemalan classic won Gold at the International Rum Festival and won the Platinum award in the Super-Premium category in 2002. This is an incredible extra old rum, which picks up awards wherever it goes.
A very open nose with a wealth of aromas that seem to evolve each time you nose the glass; a great balance of mature toasted oak, burnt caramel, dry-roasted nuts, marzipan, and orange peel; a delicate floral note of honeysuckle in the background.
A wonderfully complex and satisfying balance of sweetness, fruit, spice, and spirit, all tempered by the extra aging stage in ex-cognac French oak barrels. Long, smooth, and sweet with a weight of dark cherry chocolate and flavors of intense dried fruits like sultana, date, and prune. Sweet oak spices of clove, vanilla, and cinnamon, and lighter notes of dried mango and raspberry, with a subtle hint of ginger to finish.
A connoisseur’s delight and the ultimate expression of the Master Blender’s art. Best enjoyed on a single large lump of pure, clear ice in a luxury rocks glass with a heavy base.
Calves leather, brown sugar, molasses, bourbon, hints of cedar, pipe tobacco, fruit, chocolate, and brandy butter.
Absolutely amazing intensity with waves of soft brown sugar, toffee, spicy oak, cedar, and pipe tobacco.
