I like the sweetness, but since I'm not a whiskey/ bourbon fan, this rum isn't a favorite.

Zaya is a nice smooth sipping rum. It may be a little sweet for some but it is not over the top in sweetness. It is silky smooth and has little afterburn. This lack of a bite may be pleasant to some but others may judge it as a rum that is missing some kick. I can see it's score vary but I really like it

The more rum I drink the more I find my regard for Zaya diminishing. It has a nice color, and nice (if sticky) legs that I associate with added sweets. It smells like cookies in the oven. It tastes of caramel and lingers sweetly. And lingers some more. It’s priced right and they threw a couple of sipping glasses.

I try a lot of rums and keep going back to Zaya for its sweet and complex flavor at a reasonable price. 12 years old and less than $30 is a bargain!

First rum with this app. A smokey taste, with a hint of vanilla. Good straight up, or on the rocks. Excellent for sipping.

Goût de vanille et caramel. Facile à boire. Je n'ai pas goûté l'ancien Zaya du Guatemala pour le comparer au Zaya du Trinidad Tobago.

Pas disponible à la SAQ, j’ai découvert ce rhum sur les tablettes du LCBO, pour approximativement $75 CAD. Pour le même prix, vous pouvez acheterune bonne bouteiile de Planatation Barbados 20 ans, Zacapa 23 ans et Diplomatico Reserva Exclusivia ( celui est moins cher et meilleur que le Zaya). Pour presque la moitiė du prix, Eldorado 12 ans est un milleur rapport qualité/prix.

To me, this rum is very high quality at this price point. Not necessarily the absolute best option, but a very solid option. It's pretty smooth drinking and has some really great flavor. There is a bit of afterburn, but it is not unbearable.

Nice vanilla & molasses aroma but was a little disappointed with the taste. A touch harsher on the palate than i was expecting & the vanilla came across as almost extract-y. Not terrible but have had much better.

My go to when I want to sip a rum with little commitment to a second drink. Sweet enough for an after-dinner drink, smooth with sweet molasses and cocoa lingers in the pallet
