Zacapa XO

Top 10 Holiday Gifts

Zacapa XO is a top-notch blend of fine aged rums

Get in the holiday spirit this year with the gift of — you guessed it — spirits! A blend of rums between six and 25 years old, Zacapa XO's distillation is what makes it unique. While most rums are distilled from molasses, Zacapa's Master Blender Lorena Vásquez uses only the first pressing of sugarcane for a result that is pure and unlike any other rum. Zacapa XO is also aged in several different casks, including bourbon, sherry and Pedro Ximenez wine casks for increased depth of flavor. The light-mahogany spirit is sweet and fruity with a hint of spice, great for sipping by the fire, with a smooth taste of dark cherry chocolate and dried fruits.

Price: $99
