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
This review might not be current because the bottle of Zaya Gran Reserva I tried was an old one found on the shelf of a local liquor store. It was distilled in Guatamala, not Trinidad, and had the 2007 San Francisco Gold Medal tag on it so I imagine it had been on the shelf for about 8 years.
The rum was very dark in color. Slightly darker than a Trinidad version I saw at another liquor store. The aroma is strong with the dominate smell for me of coffee and licorice with vanilla accent. It is very smooth with very little alcohol burn. I drink it as a sipper with just one ice cube in the glass.
Very good rum for someone who likes flavor and aroma...
Like some other readers, my first aged rum. Still love the vanilla aroma! My go to when I am introducing good rum to Bourbon drinkers in the south.
Très bon rhum des trinidad. Belle couleur foncée.
Belle odeur sucrée et bon retour de caramel, facile à boire... un rhum très sucré et assez proche d'un millonario le côté épices en moins
A avoir dans sa collection !
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.
