Ron Zacapa, 23

RRP £45

Ron Zacapa was one of the first rums to take the concept of solera ageing to a truly mass market. This rum from Guatemala is matured in a complex system of casks that are then held in a vat, with the average age of the mature spirit said to be around 23 years old, hence the name. The spirit here is light and delicate, with a sweet tea note, cinnamon, nutmeg, barbecue char and cherry cola. The palate is pure Black Forest gateau, with figs and dates on the finish.
