This review is about the new Zacapa – Reserva Limitada 2015.
I’ve bought this bottle after a tastingseminar last month at the La Casa del Habano Almere!
Special tnx goes to Andries who presented this seminar. We also tasted the Solera 23,
XO and the Capa Negra.
All lovers of good rum know the brand Zacapa by now, it has been a brand that delivers very
tastefull and complex rums. This one is their 3rd Reserva Limitada that Zacapa has produced,
and boy oh boy, Zacapa has made a gem with this one!We all know their Solera23, XO and Capa
Negra, if you multiply those tastingprofiles you prob. end up at this Reserva Limitada 2015.
The 2015 edition is the third release in Ron Zacapa’s annual Reserva Limitada series.
Made with rums aged for between six and 24 years, this was initially aged in a combination
of ex-whisky and ex-sherry casks before being finished in re-charred barrels at altitude.
Bottling Date: 2015
This is a sence-tingeling dram, Amazing deep amber coloring of the rum that looks similar to the XO.
on the Smell/Nose is just full of ripe tropical fruits with a hint of smoke and the Taste/Palette
shows what i already smelled and more, it is so rich but not overpowering. A tropical fruit explosion
and some wood along with hints of coffee, honey, vanilla, also a slight tobacco.
The maturing on the sherry and whisky barrels give the extra complexity and smokyness.
The finish is very nice and leaves a nice hint of spice.
My conclusion, this is a must-have bottle for each rum collection!
It is one of the most complex rums i have came across,
this one is definately in my top 5 for now.
