Yes, a bottle similar to Zacapa 23 one, with a different colour.

It's a special edition, 45% ABV.

I'm searching some info about tasting notes..

Cask strength and only 45%.. packaging is a bit ropey- Is it a gimmick for certain markets?

Oh finally I've found the two Zacapa Centenario. I've bought them and I think that they are two mktg operations in order to ride the success of Zacapa brand, at least in Italy. At this point I wonder what do you think about it in the other European countries, and in the U.S.

About tasting notes I found 23y Etiqueta Negra too sweet, almost without the particular character of classic celebrated 23y.

23y Special Edition Straight from the Cask respect better tasting feelings of the brand, but with more alcohol strenght, not bad features because of sweet notes are hardly present in this one too.

I've reseved a Web Space for you to reply me easier about your knowledge

"Straight from the Cask" doesn't really make sense to me, in the context of a blended Solera style Rum.

I mean, I guess, it means they aren't adding any additional water at the bottling stage?

Beyond that, it seems too confusingly close to whiskey terms like "Single Barrel" and "Cask Strength" that don't really apply to this style of rum making.
