-- Ron Zacapa Centenario is a premium rum produced in Guatemala by Rum Creation and Products, a subsidiary of Industrias Licoreras de Guatemala, and distributed and marketed by Diageo. Zacapa Centenario was created in 1976 to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the foundation of Zacapa, a town in eastern Guatemala. Ron Zacapa Centenario 23 used to be known as Ron Zacapa Centenario 23 Años. Its name changed due to the confusion it caused, as people thought it was a 23-year-old rum instead of a blend of rums between 6 and 23 years old. --
The One that has changed my evaluation of Rum [BAR FIVE]
I learned about this excellent Rum on the the comic book Bartender 6stp . One writer loved this Rum and ..... after I finished reading that story I started wanting to drink this rum. Few months later, I visited my favorite Bar "Bar Five" in Shibuya at that trime I fogot this Rum's name. I asked one bartender "Can I get ..... I forgot the name but.. it may be rum or gin and the name contains ages .. like 20 years .. and ..yes, I want to drink it!" Soon he brought one bottle. "This may be the one you are looking for". It was "Ron Zakapa 23". And I tried drinking and soon felt how marvelous it was. Before I tried drinking this rum, Rum was, for me, just strong and too sweet. It was not worth having straight. But I thought it was not right. Some rum are really great.
