Costa Rican Rum lovingly aged using the Solera method for a complex, fruit-forward palate.
Ron Zacapa is named after a town in eastern Guatemala — "Ron" means Rum and Zacapa is the town. Their plantation is located high on the volcanic plains of Retalhuleu. They have been making premium Rum in Central America for more than one hundred years, and their Centenario line is one of the most sought-after by Rum-lovers and collectors alike. All of the Rums they produce across their portfolio are really top notch.
Ron Centenario 25 Years Gran Reserva is a sugarcane-based Costa Rican Rum aged in the Solera method. This Solera cycle creates a smooth, sophisticated sipped with Spirits aged between six and twenty-five years in ex-Bourbon casks. This results in a complex and fruity flavor profile at 40% ABV that deserves to be sipped neat… in a snifter… at sunset….
Fairly common to Sherry, Scotch, Cognac, and Rum, Solera aging is where a portion of the aging Spirit is left in the barrel. Then the barrel is refilled. The number of partial emptying / refills and length of time varies, but the idea is to end with a natural blend across a range of agings.
