Thought it lacked the depth of a truly great rum of a higher rating

Vona velmi prijemna, sladka, citit hrozienka, melasu, vanilku. Chut zodpoveda voni, je to sladsi rum, chut v celku plna a vyvazena, ale... s cenovkou okolo 50€ by sa urcite dali najst aj lepsie volby - El Dorado 15, Millonario 15, Centenario 20, Plantation XO - vsetky lacnejsie ako Zaya 12.

This is as slightly sophisticated, as the bottle is appealing. A reasonably priced rum for a pleasant mix. The vanilla and caramel notes finish well on the tongue. However, if you’re looking for “authentic” rum flavors, the artificial notes might turn your nose - personally, they don’t offend me. Bring on the flavor!

A very good rum for the price, but still prefer Diplomatico.

I have tried many Rums and Zaya is by far the best rum in my opinion. I still like drinking many others but the flavour and aroma of Zaya is amazing straight or with mix. I would recommend it to anyone.

Smooth, sweet, powerful. Beautiful color. Perfect to drink on the rocks.

I like rum, but this is not a rum. Dominating Artificial vanilla taste, very thin overall, zero complexity. 35 USD down the drain (poured the whole bottle - 2oz into kitchen sink).

Bottle bought: Jan 19, 2019.

This is similar to Zafra but too sweet for me, so tough to say it’s not good cause it is, but only if you prefer a sweeter rum, everything else is pretty solid (smoothness, taste, finish, etc)

This rum has changed ... the new version with the screw on cap is revolting. Zaya should be Ashamed and Embarrassed to even put their name on this artificial crap. The aroma has an intensely chemical vanilla nature with an unpleasant overtone of aftershave. The taste is consistent with the aroma, and is cloyingly, sickly sweet. I like vanilla, but not this artificial, chemical-tasting vanilla. This product is truly horrible. You may think I'm exaggerating or being overly dramatic, but no. With absolute sincerity, I can tell you, this product is truly horrible.

This rum is smooth, nice aroma. For the price it’s a steal.
