Solera Gran Reserva – Guatemala Premium Aged Rum
Bold aroma of sweet raisins and caramel, vanilla and cinnamon, pleasantly balanced with touch of citrus fruit. Finally, the nose is rounded off a little nuts and spicy oak trees. On the tongue you get an intense and fullfed experience where vanilla and oak first report their arrival, followed up by citrus fruit, flowers and a bit spice. The aftermake is – of course – long and again a bit spiced with a bit oak.
Ron Zacapa Limitada 2019 is a special blend of 6-24 year reserve-Rome, composed of Ron Zacapa’s own master blender, Lorena Vásquez. Subsequently, it has been on a fade that has previously contained Moscatel wine. The combination of young and old rooms and the various dishes ensures a layer of complexity that really makes the room very interesting.
Guatemalan Ron Zacapa is without discussion one of the world’s best area houses. No less than seven consecutive years, the house has officially got the great term at the serious international room festival. The house does not really have many years in the rear, but then today’s light in 1976, 100 years after the founding of the city of Zacapa, located 112 kilometers from Guatemala City. Unlike many other manufacturers who use Molasse, Zacapa uses the juice from the first pressing of sugar cane. It makes the room more round and soft and helps to secure Zacapa’s characteristic flavoring profile. However, it can also thank the area in southern Guatemala for. The fat soil is rich in volcanic minerals and rivers that give nourishment to all life. Both are helping to secure the depth and aroma of the rum. After distilling, the room is sent in a bit of a journey from the lowland to “the house over the clouds” in the height of 2300 meters, where the cooler temperatures and high humidity benefit the ROM. The fresh mountain air ripens the room and contributes to its deep aroma, its fullness and complex taste notes. It is also here, it stores on oak barrels and reviews the Solera process. What is Solera? Actually a blend, so the finished Rome includes Rome from several fad types and styles – carefully selected by Master Blender Lorena Vásquez. Some fade is made on white, American oak and has contained American whiskey, while others are made of European oak, which has previously contained Cognac, Sherry or Wines at Pedro Ximenez. All the dishes are toasted in varying degree – something that plays a lot in on the finished Rome. It all gives Lorena Vásquez opportunity to put together high quality room with great complexity.
