Zaya Gran Reserva 12
Zaya // Trinidad & Tobago
The Gran Reserva, previously made in Guatemala but now produced in Trinidad. This product also previously had a label which stated "aged 12 years", but that has changed to simply "12" and is a "blend of 12 aged rums".
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
"Gran Reserva debuts with massive vanilla, allspice and maple syrup tones that segue into gorgeous vanilla, wood and cocoa/mocha on the palate. Well-integrated spice and hints of roasted orange peel follow under a sheen of banked heat. The finish is sweet and lingering with ever-diminishing warmth. Definitely sweet but deftly balanced. Sip this slowly with nuts and hard cheeses."
