The Sweet sipper from the Caribbean.
 
Originally coming from Guatemala the distillers of Zaya Rum became part of a bigger conglomerate under the ownership of Diageo. The production moved to Trinidad and Tobago where it is distilled since 2008. The Zaya Gran reserva recipe is supposedly a big secret that consists of a precise blend that is similar to the original Guatemalan Rum.
 
Zaya Gran Reserva 12 is a blend of 12 Rums from Trinidad and Tobago carefully selected and blended by their Master Blender. Each of the Rums is created from virgin sugar cane harvested from the islands. The pressed juice is fermented with and double distilled in copper stills. It is then aged in medium charred Whiskey and Bourbon white oak casks. This careful process of production brought this Rum a lot of recognition and many rewards which is more than appropriate for this easy sipper!

Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof’.

Andrew,
Delicious rum blend. Strong of notes of banana's foster and pastries. Just the right amount of woodspice
 
Brittany
Brittany,
Pretty good for a run. Good for sipping. Aftertaste is a little strange
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
The best sipping rum there is
 
Ian
Ian,
This was my first sipping rum many years ago. It's still an old favorite, at the price it is hard to beat. I consider this a 'daily drinker' but certainly not my favorite.
 
Jim
Jim,
Zaya is a good rum. I enjoyed it more when it was from Guatemala.
 
Michael

Amy
Amy,
Not a 12 Year Old Rum as stated, but in fact a "blend of 12 aged rums". False advertising at best, straight up deception at worst. Not a bad rum for a mixer, I just hate being lied to.
 
Paul
Paul,
Perfect dark and stormy rum. Brings the right sweetness to the bitter ginger beer and lime and you can go lite on the syrup. Easy sipping for summer nights.

This is now my favorite rum, both solo and mixed. The taste of vanilla is a LOT stronger than I was expecting, but it's not overpowering.

My favorite sipping rum.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Sweetened rum with no real age statement. Where does it say minimum 12 year old rum? The label says “Blend of 12 Aged Rums”
 
Joshua
Joshua,
One of the best Rums I have ever had.
 
Justin
Justin,
This has been a staple in my home bar for rums. For the price there isn't anything better. It's even better than most rums I've tasted that are more expensive.

Antti,
It is an outstanding, 12 year old, blended, cane liqueur with an exceptionally smooth & balanced finish.
