Ron Zacapa, Centenario Sistema Solera 23

RRP £56.45

This glossy, conker-coloured spirit from Guatemala was the original luxury rum. It might not be as ‘artisan’ as some of the other rums in this line-up but there is still much to enjoy here: distilled from the first press sugar cane ‘honey’, and aged in ex-bourbon. Ex-sherry and PX casks, it’s rich and silky, with chewy dates, prunes and chocolate syrup. One for sipping with a square of chocolate or some vanilla ice cream.
