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….

Smartass Corner:
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.

A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
