Zacapa Edición Negra (43% abv) is described as a rum inspired by the natural elements of Guatemala and the dark fire of its volcanoes. It is said to showcase a different Zacapa palate, stepping away from the sweet butterscotch notes identified in Zacapa 23 to create a bolder flavour with chocolate notes. Edición Negra, made by master blender Lorena Vasquez, is aged in double charred American oak casks, said to create “revealing accentuated woody and spicy notes in the liquid”.
