Really good for most
This is the rum for new rum drinkers. Sweet with vanilla flavors and smooth.

A classy Rum
First class rum! Sweet, succulent, buttery and smooth with a dominant vanilla flavor; hints of maple, nutmeg and caramel. The price point is right and honestly, I would pay for it without argument if it was ten to fifteen dollars more. With its ease on the pallets I would definitely recommend it for the first timer. To good to be a mixer, however out of curiosity, I made a rum and Coke and really wished I hadn't because it was the best damn rum and Coke I ever had! I turned it into a Vanilla Coke with very little hint of alcohol in it. It's what I call an "ambush drink." Zaya will not dissapoint you!

Major Rogers Would Approve
Lovely, versatile, very reminiscent of the old New England rums, probably the best for Cap Huff's recipe I've ever tried. Excellent in a nosing glass, Zaya's just about the perfect rum....

Ridiculously good!
We got as a birthday gift and so excited to find it is so affordable. Like others said, sip neat or on the rocks and be prepared to be amazed.

Rumtastic!
This is rapidly becoming my go-to drink. Delicious, mellow and just a pleasure to drink at the end of a long day. Best on the rocks - do not ruin this with a mixer!

Smooth and delicious
I received this rum as a gift and was hesitant to try it, but when I did I was amazed at the wonderful flavour! It is so smooth with a somewhat sweet taste. It's definitely smooth enough to drink on the rocks, no mixer. This is now my all time favourite rum, far surpassing any others I've tried so far.

OOoooh, this is nice!
I have always thought of rum as being a "Uncivilized" drink, but now I have to eat my words! My GF introduced me to Zaya, and I have been a fan ever since! The rum has a wonderful taste on the rocks (No mixer! save that for the lesser brands!) And she gets a laugh from my "conversion" to a dedicated rum drinker- Thanks Raven!

My favorite or my 2nd favorite... still debating
Excellent! Very sweet but aged. It's Godly. The aroma is to die for. -- NOTE: I personally like my rum heated with a "whisky stone" in a snifter glass. You should try yours at, below, and above room temperature to find your preference. Always use whisky stones or a method that won't taint that taste. When freezing your whisky stone, ALWAYS double/triple bag to avoid freezer-smell.

An Exquisite Rum
Zaya is an exquisite rum to give to people who may not have had much exposure to great rums. So smooth, with its wonderful vanilla and caramel fragrance. This is such a great sipping rum that I had bought into not using it for mixed drinks until I had a classic mojito made with Zaya. Unbelievably good! If a rum is not good enough to sip, why use it as a mixer? Try a Zaya mojito and you'll never want any other kind.

DO NOT USE AS A MIXER!
It tastes too good neat or on the rocks to us as a mixer, but at this price you could if you wanted to.

Amazing.
Truly delicious, all by itself. No rocks, just rum. Scrumptious.

Excellent aged rum
Very smooth and flavorful, the chocolate oak & spice notes are awesome. Sweet but not as sweet as Zacapa 23, no idea what this other dude is complaining about. This is a superb neat sipper and mixer for high end cocktails. For the average of $24 a bottle you'll be hard pressed to find a better value.

Simply the best
Zaya 12-year has a smooth, creamy texture, with loads of sweet (but not too sweet) vanilla and caramel flavor & aroma, with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. I drink it straight, and it never burns. I suppose it would make a great mixer, but it's too good to waste in that way. If there's a better sippling rum, I haven't found it...and there's certainly not a better one at this price point. If you're looking for a luscious rum to enjoy on its own, look no further.

Are you kidding?
Neat or rocks- amazing. Superb. Outstanding. Simply delicious- DO NOT ruin this by mixing it! Best I've ever tasted. Tastes at least as good as it smells. Got no interest in going back to my other rums...unless I need a mixer.

Smooth, sippable, with a strong vanilla presence.
Smooth and surprisingly sippable, with a delightful vanilla fragrance and caramel undertones. Adds a really nice depth to cocktails that allow its flavors to stand out. Definitely recommended!

One of the best!
Whenever I try other rums, I always compare them to Zaya. Yes, a few are smoother, but Zaya is still one of the overall best. Period. 5 Star rated...very well priced for what it is.

Simply a Life Experience
I hate saying anything good about the best rum on earth, because it doesn't stay on the shelves very long.
