Zaya Gran Reserva Rum is a blend of rums distilled from molasses in a five column still, the rums are aged in white oak barrels for a up to 12 years.
Zaya rum was initially distilled by Industrias Licoreras de Guatemala in Guatemala. The brand was acquired in 2008 by Infinium Spirits and is now produced in Trinidad and distilled by Angostura.
Recommendable to most
Very surprised at the aromas, vanilla caramel. The finish started a little rougher than expected but just got better as it lingered. Neat, on the rocks, haven't tried to mix with anything yet.
Nice and sweet but not too sweet. Definitely has a taste of caramel and maybe some vanilla. Had this neat at a bar and it was smooth.
I often confused Zaya and Zacapa early on from same distillery. They are similar both being sweet, but Zaya has wonderful lingering notes OC cinnamon, vanilla, and spice. Very nice and subtle, I will try it again soon, my first tasting was the original Guatemala blend, this rating is the current Trinidad version.
Zaya is a decent offering. Sweet nose with heavy vanilla. Smooth finish with very little alcohol burn. I would always drink this one neat. Similar to Ron Zacapa but not as good.
