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.
Delicious nose, very appealing ! Tastes sweet and has a nice smooth aftertaste. Lots of caramel.
The bottle is super tall ! Good to know ;)
I purchased this rum as a gift for a friend from Trinidad, and had the good fortune to sample it at his party. It is absolutely the most delicious, smooth rum I have ever tasted. I have enjoyed it straight up, with cola, and on the rocks. Vanilla, molasses, caramel ... just a delightful.
And, the bottle is bit of a conversation piece!
Very unique taste. I love it with ginger ale or ginger beer. Kind of heavy and close to a liqueur. Very sweet. Not great mixed with cola and just okay on the rocks.
Zaya Gran Reserva Rum har jeg læst skulle være "for" sød, det synes jeg ikke, slet ikke kvalm. Her er stor vanilje duft og smag, samt karamel, jeg fornemmer også en anelse tobak. God nydelses rom.
One of my collection but not my favorite. I drink quality rums straight up and although this rum has great appearance and aroma the finish is not as smooth as less pricy rums.
“Mon amie laissez le bon temps rouler!”
As I do like some of the sweet rums (Plantation 20th & Zacapa XO), I was really wanting to love this, but the over abundance of sugary vanilla actually gave me a headache.
Smooth sweet toffee aroma. The palate offers you sweet toffee and some vanilla. At this pricepoint i miss a bit of body though. It's very similar to the hafl priced punta cana esplendio. I actually find the punta cana better, because it posesses a slightly fuller body, missing in the Zaya
Nose: Caramel and strawberry.
Taste: Caramel, vanilla, chocolate.
It's a liquid chocolate bar. And for the price, I'm perfectly fine with that.
The perfect example of a sweetened rum pretending to be "premium" but is a good dessert rum. It´s sweet and smoooth.... from added sugar... 20g/L but that is less than some other "sugar bombs" out there, still 20 is a lot.
Meget sød, fed og velsmagende rom som alle kan drikke. Måske en kende for sød. Men super god(har naturligvis alt den karamel og vaniliesmag den kan trække:)
Sweet vanilla smell, with some other notes in the back. The smell is fantastic.
The taste I great as we'll. The vanilla is not as heavy in the taste, but it's there. It's a real nice, smooth and easy to drink rum.
Denne rom er til alle som er til en sød rom.
Der er noter af vanilje, kaffe samt chokolade og dufter fantastisk. En dejlig rom som bør have sin faste plads i skabet.
An interesting, smooth rum, albeit a little expensive. It's not quite a sipping rum, although I have certainly enjoyed it as such, and it's not quite a mixer, although I've certainly done that as well. It's in the price range between a mixer and a sipper. However if I had to make a list of top 10 rums to try, Zaya would absolutely be on it.
Probably the best rum available in the market I live in. Nice caramel and honey taste with a hint of spice. Good over ice with a twist of lime. The color is excellent. Overall, one of my favorites for regular consumption.
