    Rom... -bravo-

    De anul trecut pot spune ca am descoperit romul (la bautura ma refer...). Incercasem cu multi ani in urma in Ro dar nu am fost dat pe spate...Bacardi, Captain Morgan.

    Am devenit un avid fan pentru Zapaca Centenario 23yo... absolut superb, doar cu un singur cub de gheata.

    Bineinteles, din ce am incercat, veti aprecia si Angostura, Flor de Cana 18yo, El Dorado 21yo, Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva.

    Revin peste cateva luni cu mai multe nume de suspecti -ras2-

    Admiral Rodney Extra Old St. Lucia Rum


    by Matt Robold on January 31, 2011


    We all have our first loves. They’re the ones that we never forget and that always have a special place in our hearts. They’re the ones that caught us by surprise, made us feel things we had never felt before and opened a whole new world to us – new textures and flavors all for the taking thanks to that first one.

    Of course, I’m talking about my first rum love – the rum that started me down the path to becoming the RumDood in the first place: Admiral Rodney.

    Admiral Rodney is made in St. Lucia, a small island in the Eastern Caribbean jammed between Martinique to the North and Barbados to the Southwest. The rum is named after a British Naval Officer that served as military governor of the island after the British seized it from France in 1762, Admiral George Rodney. Rodney is probably best-known for his command of the British fleet during the 1782 Battle of the Saintes, in which the British ships under the Admiral’s command foiled a Franco-Spanish plan to capture the island of Jamaica. On the front label of a bottle of Admiral Rodney you can find a small note about the famous battle.

    Admiral Rodney (the rum) is made today by St. Lucia Distillers in Castries, the capital city of St. Lucia. The rum is made in column stills and is then placed in oak casks for aging. The final blend in the bottle has an average age of 12 years in oak (meaning some of the rum is less than 12 years old, some is more).


    Appearances

    In the glass the rum is a deep bronze color. The legs that form on the side of the glass are slow-moving and thick – almost oozing down toward the bottom of the glass.


    Nose

    Your nose is greeted with scents of caramel, vanilla and banana up front. There are some spice notes of nutmeg and even a slight grassy note that seems to move toward the smell of grapes if you let the rum sit for a few minutes.

    The rum doesn’t smell overly rich. It seems to have a sweetness to it, but is more in the vein of a Bajan variant of English-style rum: cleaner and softer than the Jamaican rums.


    Palate

    Admiral Rodney’s foray onto your tongue leads with sweet caramel and vanilla notes. What starts as a simple and clean rum with slight sweetness also brings flavors of leather, banana and apple. The finish is slightly spiced and dry with lingering notes of pear and smoke.

    “Smooth and relaxing” is probably the best way to describe this rum. It lacks any harsh burn on the finish and the lingering spice and fruit notes that stay with you for a few moments after each sip are very nice.


    Mixing

    Suggested Drinks:
    ■Rum Old Fashioned
    ■Sweet Palmetto
    ■El Presidente


    The Admiral is a fantastic sipping rum and is probably best enjoyed on its own. It’s very easy and smooth and pairs well with sitting in a comfortable chair while smoking a pipe or a cigar.

    Sure, back in 2005 there may have been someone who may or may not have poured some of this into a glass with ice and a cola-type beverage, but I’m certain that he met his end as he deserved – either that or he went on to start a rum blog, get invited to be a judge at numerous rum competitions, get invited to host/MC rum events and eventually become a bartender that spends his shifts convincing people to try classic rum cocktails with ingredients like Chartreuse or vermouth. One of the two.

    If I were pressed to come up with a cocktail in which to use the Rodney by either a customer or an arbitrary blogging format that I’ve chosen, I’d try to stick to simple, classic drinks like a Rum Old Fashioned with Fee Brothers Old Fashioned Bitters or a Sweet Palmetto. It’s also pretty tasty in an El Presidente.


    El Presidente (modified)

    1.5 oz Aged Rum
    .75 oz Dry Vermouth
    .25 oz Curacao
    .5 tsp Grenadine

    Stir with ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange or lemon twist.



    The Long & The Short Of It

    Admiral Rodney is a great sipping rum that’s pretty close to perfect for sitting on your porch or boat or couch (if, like me, you lack both of the previous options) and letting the day wind down. It’s clean, slightly sweet profile with a wonderfully smooth finish is what most people are looking for in a “premium” rum.

    The biggest downside to the rum is that if you’re a United Statesan such as myself, you’ll have to leave the country to procure yourself a bottle until such time as the USPTO decides that there might actually have been two admirals in British naval history. Of course, that downside comes with the upside that procuring a bottle provides an excuse to travel to St. Lucia for a week or two – and there can’t be anything wrong with that.

    '' Ron Zacapa Centenario (23 Solero)



    Review: Ron Zacapa Centenario (23 Solero) Rum (93.5/100)
    a review by Chip Dykstra (AKA Arctic Wolf)
    Posted December 18, 2012


    I recently was given the opportunity to review the newest bottling of the Ron Zacapa Centenario (23 Solero) Rum. (I have previously reviewed an older bottling of this rum when it was labelled Ron Zacapa Centrenario 23 Anos. My understanding based upon conversations with Zacapa Master Blender, Lorena Vásquez is that the flavour of the Ron Zacapa Rum varies slightly from year to year. Therefore, we may expect some differences in the rum since that last review over three years ago.)

    Ron Zacapa rums are made from sugar cane harvested in southern Guatemala, which is pressed into virgin sugar cane honey. The fermentation process uses a yeast strain (saccharomyces cerevisae) isolated from pineapples to transform sugars within the ‘honey’ into alcohol. This fermentation process takes approximately 5 days after which 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.)

    After distillation, the Zacapa rum is transported to the ‘House above the Clouds’ in the Guatemalan mountains for maturation. Special cellars age the rum at an altitude of more than 7000 feet above sea level where the ambient temperature is much more stable and the oxygen levels are lower than at lower elevations. The more stable ambient temperature ensures that the aging barrels are subject to less differential air pressure between the outside and the inside of the barrel.

    As well, according to my correspondence with Zacapa Master Blender, Lorena Vásquez:

    “Zacapa is aged at high altitude where the temperature is lower. The lower temperature also directly influences the oxygen levels which are lower as well, and this lower oxygen level aids in a slower aging process. The slower aging, allows for more time for the aromas and flavors to combine.”

    Zacapa rums are aged using a process they call ‘Sistema Solero’ which is based on the system used to age Spanish sherry. The subject of my review, Ron Zacapa Centenario (23 Solero) is blended from solera aged stocks which range in age from 6 years to 23 years. The aging barrels used are a mixture of American Whisky casks, and Sherry and Pedro Ximenez wine barrels. The combination of solera aging and the variety of reused barrels creates a highly complex rum with a rich aroma and flavour.

    Ron Zacapa is owned by Rum Creation and Products Inc. (RCP), who have signed a global distribution and joint marketing agreement with Diageo.



    In the Bottle: 4/5

    The Ron Zacapa bottle has changed a little over last three years. One change which I appreciate is that the words “sistema solera” have replaced the word “Anos” upon the label. The previous wording on the bottle carried the implication that the contents had been aged for a full 23 years.

    The new label makes it clear that the rum is a product of Zacapa’s ’Sistema Solero’ aging process which (if you are versed in solera style aging techniques) implies that the oldest rum in the blend is 23 years not the entire contents. Having said that, I would prefer even more clarity as the present label may still mislead many consumers who have no firm idea of what ‘Sistema Solero’ means or that the number 23 represents the oldest rum in the blend.

    To make things clear, this spirit is a blend of rums aged between 6 and 23 years with the majority of the rum being much closer to 6 years of age than 23. If this were a Canadian or Scottish Whisky, and it were to carry an age statement, it would be considered a 6-year-old spirit.

    Leaving that aside we have a rather nice presentation. The woven band of palm leaf which separates the top and bottom label is a nice touch, and it helps me to grip the bottle if it is cold and has condensation on the outside. The corked top is great, and I have no complaints (other than that mild rant about age statements).



    In the Glass 9.5/10

    The Ron Zacapa 23 Solero has a reputation for being one of the very best rums in the entire world. As I examine the rum in my glass, I find no reason to doubt that reputation. The spirit has a rich dark brown caramel colour, and when I tilt my glass and give it a bit of a twirl, the rum shows moderately thick legs which move slowly down the inside of the glass.

    The initial aroma which rises from the glass is full of brown sugar, molasses and baking spices. Some lighter notes of orange peel and marmalade work their way upwards with a mixture of toasted walnut, and dried fruit (raisins, dates and a touch of prunes). The rum grows in the glass with the baking spices (nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon and deep dark rich brown sugar) gaining strength and vigor in the breezes above the glass. Impressions of cocoa gather, along with a building impression of cola and vanilla. Although I sense a firm oak presence, it is not an omnipresent sensation, the aroma of oak and spice is very well melded into the overall rum.



    In the Glass 56.5/60

    For many of my friends (and for myself) this is an almost perfect sipping rum. The flavour leads out with dark caramel (treacle) and toffee accented by honey and wood spices. I taste dry fruit, cocoa, walnuts and baking spices, the combination of which gives me an impression of Christmas fruitcake. As I sip, I notice rich tobacco, orange marmalade, marzipan and a cherry impression similar to a Turkish Delight candy bar. The rum is rich with flavour and complexity.

    If there is a flaw, it is that the rum can at times seems carry just a little too much honey sweetness. This is not a consistent impression, rather it is something I notice on some days but not on others. It is a very minor quibble as my high score for the rum attests.



    In the Throat 14/15

    Dry fruit, walnut, and cocoa seem elevated in the finish which reveals just a touch of bitterness in the exit (which perhaps is the perfect foil for the honey-like sweetness which characterized the entry). The palate is left with lingering impressions of molasses and baking spices.



    The Afterburn 9.5/10

    I said it earlier, the Ron Zacapa 23 Solero has a reputation for being one of the very best rums in the entire world, and I certainly agree. This cane spirit has a rich, full flavour with layer upon layer of complexity. Perhaps, it is just a smidgen too sweet on some days; but then again perhaps I am just searching for flaws where none exist.

    My final score of 94/100 reflects my high opinion, and perhaps the only real flaw in this rum, is that it is so hard to find in my locale.''
