Description

 

Zacapa XO is crafted from a blend of rums aged 6 to 25 years, with an extra ageing stage in French oak barrels that previously held cognac. 2300m above sea level, XO is created using a unique Sistema Solera, the secret Zacapa's balanced and complex flavour. One of the highest ageing facilities in the world, the cooler temperatures slow the ageing process, while the thinner air and lower atmospheric pressure helps intensify the infusion of flavours from the barrels. 

A connoisseurs delight and the ultimate expression of the Master Blender’s art. Best enjoyed on a single large lump of pure, clear ice in a luxury rocks glass with a heavy base.

Mahogany colour with intense red hints of long barrel ageing at the rim. A very open nose with a wealth of aromas that seem to evolve each time you nose the glass; a great balance of mature toasted oak, burnt caramel, dry-roasted nuts, marzipan and orange peel; a delicate floral note of honeysuckle in the background. A wonderfully complex and satisfying balance of sweetness, fruit, spice and spirit, all tempered by the extra ageing stage in ex-cognac French oak barrels; long, smooth and sweet with a weight of dark cherry chocolate and flavours of intense dried fruits like sultana, date and prune; sweet oak spices of clove, vanilla and cinnamon, and lighter notes of dried mango and raspberry, with a subtle hint of ginger to finish. A connoisseur’s delight and the ultimate expression of the Master Blender’s art.
