Zaya Gran Reserva Rum is a blend of 12 rums sourced from Trinidad and Tobago. Double-distilled from pure sugar cane in copper pot stills, the rums are aged in whiskey and bourbon oak barriques (225-liter barrels) for a up to 12 years.
Zaya rum is distilled by Industrias Licoreras de Guatemala. Originally made in Guatemala, Zaya Gran Reserva is now produced in Trinidad."
Had this one chilled and neat. It was full bodied, warm and smooth with a stronger vanilla flavor than most.
The smooth taste of this rum is only outdone by the flavors that follow. This is my go to rum
Almost liqueur-like, IMO.
My fave so far. Perfect for sipping......neat or over rocks.
Very good value and available
Dark color with a faint aroma of vanilla. It is definitely enjoyable as a sipping rum. First sips are warm and smooth with an enjoyable faint vanilla finish.
Zaya is so perfectly smooth it will change the minds of those who claim they 'don't like' rum. It is perfect for sipping and one of the best tasting rums I've found yet.
