Zaya Gran Reserva

Zaya Gran Reserva
The Zaya Rum Company
ABV: 40%
80 Proof

My good friend and coworker got this bottle of rum and brought it into the office. It ended up being a reminder that not all rums are equal and some are better left for mixing. We slowly worked through it over several years. It is just overwhelmingly sweet. It smells like caramel and syrup. It tastes smooth enough, but there is not complexity in the flavor. It is just one note – very sweet. Best for mixing with coke or a dark rum for cocktails.
