Zaya rum is distilled by Industrias Licoreras de Guatemala. Originally made in Guatemala, Zaya Gran Reserva is now produced in Trinidad."
If this is the same rum everyone else tried. I have a couple bottles from a few years old to a couple years old. I like this rum. It is sweet and flavorful but an enjoyable supper with a little burn. Rum forward. Sweet. Vanilla and spice in the middle. Not my favorite but an enjoyable sipper to Gabe in the mix.
On the rocks or straight up
This is my favorite rum so far. It is great for sipping at room temp, sweet with no bite. For the price, this is the best value rum I've found.
Vanilla, floral, great finish
Never go wrong with that Rum neat or on the rocks.
enjoy this cold
This is another favorite of mine, almost on the same level as Diplomatico. This was my first top shelf rum, so it's safe to say it got me interested in the world of rum. It's very smooth, almost no burn, and hints of caramel, vanilla, and oak.
Nice as a dessert rum, very sweet (heavy vanilla in particular) and smooth. Can't have more than one or two, though. Can taste the Trini/Angostura influence through and through, as this is basically 1919 with more vanilla and a bit more oak.
A good choice and a good price
A very good sipping rum at a great price. I can find this in all the PA stores.
Had this one chilled and neat. It was full bodied, warm and smooth with a stronger vanilla flavor than most.
The smooth taste of this rum is only outdone by the flavors that follow. This is my go to rum
Almost liqueur-like, IMO.
My fave so far. Perfect for sipping......neat or over rocks.
