Review: Ron Zacapa Endicion Negra

Posted by Arctic Wolf on June 15, 2022

Ron Zacapa rums are made from sugar cane harvested in southern Guatemala, which is pressed into virgin sugar cane honey. The fermentation process (which takes approximately 5 days) uses a yeast strain (saccharomyces cerevisae) isolated from pineapples to transform sugars within the cane honey into alcohol. After fermentation, the fermented ‘wine’ is distilled in a single continuous column. (A distillation by-product called vinasse which contains the fermented must, yeast and other non-fermentable products which are rich in sugars and minerals is recycled and used to nourish and irrigate the Guatemalan sugar cane fields.)

Zacapa rums are matured using a complicated process they call ‘Sistema Solero’. The subject of my review, Ron Zacapa Edición Negra, is produced from rums which range in age from 6 years to 24 years, and is inspired by the natural elements of Guatemala including the dark fire of its volcanoes. Edición Negra is aged in select barrels which include double charred American oak casks.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Ron Zacapa Endicion Negra

“… The nose is rich and inviting featuring mildly sweet vanilla and caramel steeped in oak spice. Notes of raisins, prunes, dates and figs add to the richness. The oak spice evolves into luscious baking spices which include cinnamon, clove and allspice which grow in intensity as I allow the glass to breathe …”

Please enjoy my review of this outstanding new rum from Ron Zacapa.

Chimo!

    As always I enjoy your reviews. I’m curious with this particular rum, where do you get it from. Can it be got here in Calgary?
