The third release in Ron Zacapa's annual Reserva Limitada series, this 2015 release is blended from rums aged between six and 24 years, matured in a combination of ex-American whiskey, ex-sherry and ex-Pedro Ximénez casks before being finished in re-charred barrels, all at altitude.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 09/04/2016

Appearance

Clear, deep mahogany with bronze glints.

Aroma

Vanilla fudge, orange zest, dried apricot, almond, vanilla, cedarwood and caramelised fruit. Faint herbal and spice adds interest.

Taste

Drier than you may associate with Zacapa but with faint honeyed richness, vanilla and sweet amaretto-like toasted almonds balancing bitter espresso coffee, dark chocolate and dry oak. Subtle herbal notes add complexity while cinnamon, nutmeg and chili spice enlivens this rum.

Aftertaste

Vanilla, mocha coffee and dark chocolate with very mild chili and cinnamon spice.

Overall

Vanilla, amaretto and honeyed richness are harmoniously balanced by espresso coffee, bitter chocolate, dry oak, with subtle enlivening spice and faint herbal complexity.
