Zaya 12 Year Old


Zaya is distilled, blended and aged for at least 12 years in Trinidad. The first aromas are brown sugar, caramel and vanilla. The nose, when examined, also reveals banana chips, cocoa dust and dates. The copious, billowy mouth feel is luxurious and creamy. The sapidities demonstrate the scents and evolve back note flavors of persimmon, marasca cherry, apple skin while the vanilla, caramel and cocoa qualities persist and dominate. The finish dawdles demonstrating a balanced review of the aromas and tastes in a pleasant and gratifying manner. Try this rum neat, on ice or in a Spirit forward beverage.
