COVER STORY A Passion for Perfection ZACAPA NSPIRES A NEW WAVE OF APPRECIATION FOR BARREL-AGED SPIRITS by Anthony Head t here is an internet rumor claiming that Zacapa Rum, the rum from Guatemala, has been banned from some rum and spirits competitions because it���s just too damn good. It wins everything���so why should any other brand bother to show up? When we ask Lorena V��squez, Master Blender for Zacapa, about such rumors, she replies, ���We have seen tremendous success in the world of rum at such contests and we believe that the complexities and intricacies of our barrel-aging process make Zacapa more than just an exquisite sipping rum but rather a superior brown spirit that competes with the best bourbons, whiskeys and scotches.��� Considered to be the best rum in the world, spirit enthusiasts truly appreciate this barrel-aged, smooth, and complex brown spirit. And, when you taste Zacapa, you won���t be able to disagree as its superior quality is plainly���though exquisitely���evident. 44 / the tasting panel / december 2012 Lorena V��squez, Master Blender for Zacapa Rum.
