This overproof rum was recently added to the Zaya lineup. A blend of premium aged rums, its name translates to "high force" ― bottled at 115 proof, it's an intense and flavor-packed drinking experience.
Zaya Rum is an old favorite of many. Originally produced in Guatemala, the premium sipping rum is now made in Trinidad and Tobago by Trinidad Distillers Ltd. The updated Zaya Gran Reserva is a blend of rare rums aged up to 16 years, carefully selected by the Master Blender for each batch to ensure that the complex, rich, deep, and balanced profile is consistently tasty.
Crafted with high-quality blackstrap molasses particularly suited for barrel aging, the spirit is distilled in a five-column stainless steel still. The rum is bottled at 80 proof and has a rich profile with vanilla, caramel, butterscotch, cocoa, and fruit notes with a distinct sweetness throughout. The redesigned, sleeker bottle features an updated age statement and label design paying tribute to Trinidad and Tobago, known as "The Land of the Hummingbird", with a depiction of a golden hummingbird and the country's national flower ― the chaconia. This complex sipper is versatile as well, adding complexity to various tiki cocktails.
Recently, Zaya Gran Reserva was joined by 2 permanent core expressions, Zaya Cocobana and Zaya Alta Fuerza. The latter is an overproof rum, the name of which translates to "high force". The blend of premium aged rums is bottled at 115 proof, making for an intense and flavor-packed drinking experience with notes of black pepper, spice, brown sugar, and a touch of heat that makes it great for cocktails or sipping.
It's an intense rum with the nose opening with aromatic spice, brown sugar, and maple aromas. The palate is spicy and creamy with maple, brown sugar, and a pleasant sweetness. The finish is long, round, and pleasantly warming.
