ZacapaOnce upon a time I used to be a rum connoisseur in my own world. I tried a lot of rum when I was in that mood but swapped to whiskey. I honestly have never heard of Zacapa premium rum before and think I may need to go back to the rum. For the premium dark rum they must have that smooth sweetness with a bit of bite from the spices. You really should try them first to understand the underlying taste before pairing it with anything. Of course always ask your bartender as well because they usually try everything that comes in and can help you pair it properly.

Zacapa rum is made in Guatemala in 1976. The sugar cane used for Zacapa is grown in the volcanic soil which I find interesting. Zacapa only uses the first concentrated press of sugar cane. Once the rum is made, it is moved to the Quetzaltenango highlands, 2,300 meters above sea level, where it is aged slowly. Zacapa rum passes through several casks that previously housed American whiskey, Oloroso sherry and Pedro Ximenez wines. Passing through all those casks can only enhance the flavor if you ask me. I always love hearing about how each company makes their product. I am for sure going to be going to my local bar to find this because if it is anywhere here it would be at the one I frequent and will definitely report back to the fine folks reading.
