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
If this is the best that your store has, you'll be ok buying this, but there are many much better rums out there. Too much burn and oakiness to realize any other flavors.
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.

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:)
