Default Zacapa Quest

Just recently I stubmled over the Wikipedia page of Ron Zacapa Centenario. On there the different bottlings of Zacapa are mentioned. The list also names a "Zacapa ZOO" - "A super premium rum aged up to 37 years".

Anyone can confirm the existence of that rum?

Sorry my friend, can't say that I can confirm this. But I will say that there have been strong rumors going about that zacapas old rum stores are running low...which would make it hard to believe that they have this aged product out.

The signs are not looking good. Monte Cristo and the Zaya (Guatemala version) have gone and rumours that the Zacapa 15 Year Old will be discontinued are now flying around. This is (was) my favourite Zacapa. I'm running out of space storing all these dissappearing rums!!

Yeah, bad rumours all around.

Looks like Zacapa is going to be more expensive according to the local importers.
