Released in December 2014, this is the second vintage limited edition blend from Zacapa with a different blend of rums hand selected by Master Blender Lorena Vasquez. The 2014 edition comprises of a blend of reserve rums aged 6 to 24 years in white oak and French oak casks.
The casks used were stored for two years at a high altitude of 2,300 meters above sea level amid a herb garden growing in the cool climate of the Guatemalan highlands. More than 20 different herbs such as fennel, coriander, anise and tarragon thrive in the fertile soil and subtly scent the air, which in turn subtly influence the maturing rum.
