Ron Zacapa Centenario Sistema Solera 23
Back at the tail end of last year i was offered the opportunity to sample a Drinks By The Dram advent calendar, my biggest issue with that is that the Whisky ones offer a large amount of drams that i've already sampled and reviewed for the blog, and with a backlog already of samples it was time for something different.
Rum is a drink i enjoy, especially as a Dark and Stormy, and I want to enjoy it more, so you are likely to see more Rum reviews on here.
This Ron Zacapa Centenario Sistema Solera 23 is my first pick from this calendar, which i din't really do in order as work was a bit manic in December, and I seriously enjoyed it, lots of sweetness and aromatic leaf and a huge dose of burnt orange oil, tasty stuff and one i fancy a full bottle of.
Available to buy from Master of Malt
Thanks to Drinks By The Dram for the Calendar and as such the sample.
Lots of aromatic leaf notes, fever tree Madagascan cola, sweet syrupy sugar notes, candied almonds, burnt orange oil, squeezed orange peel, some gentle cooking spices hovering also
Sweet juicy grapes with candied almonds, more of that burnt orange oil and cooking spices, a hint of bitter fruits,
