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
Smells like Vanilla extract with caramel to the nose but finishes with a perfect balance and smoother than heavy cream. Not too oaky at Best aged rum that I’ve tasted for the price. It’s what I drink every time now. No burn on the palate whatsoever. Try it with Q craft cola and angostura bitters. It’s the best rum for mixing that I’ve ever had and have some friends in Miami that love it with Organic Coconut water. It’s a masterpiece from a real rum die hard!! Standing ovation.
Not far off from Zacapa (Another "Z" rum, but from a totally different place in the Caribbean), this one is almost syrupy and sweet on the rocks. I wouldn't diss it as dark Karo, but there's too much sugar in this to enjoy any natural flavors hidden here.
I went to a rum bar and this was my first introduction to rum outside of the Bacardi, Sailor Jerry, Captain Morgan cheap stuff. This isnt too expensive and is good for just sipping on.
zaya 2013 u mna top rum, ktory bol vo vsetkych smeroch to naj, proste extaza exotiky. po otvoreni flase bolo citit cherry, coko, banany a tak aj chutil. zaver bez jedineho skrabnutia, uplne jemnucky olejovy rumicek s fantastickou chutou. lenze, jedneho dna bol tento skvost nedostupny a trvalo par rokov kym som ho znova objavil. flasa aj obal mierne pozmeneny a rum vo vnutri zmeneny poriadne. aj ked pisu ze rovnaka receptura, proste za tie prachy, cca 50 € je to uplna katastrofa. nechal som ho v pohari 20 minut odstat a trosku sa vratila jemnost v zavere, ale samotna chut je nevyrazna, slaby sedy priemer. takze pozor aku flasu idete pit, na lavo nova zaya, na pravo stara.
Yes this is the shit. Affordable, delicious, sweet, caramel, in some light nearly red in color. Way too easy to drink. This stuff spells trouble for me
