How does this rum taste?

A velvety vanilla led Zaya Rum Gran Reserva charms with hints of chocolate and coffee, but some find it overly sweet and lacking depth. It's excellent for sipping, though purists might relegate it to mixing. A divisive yet intriguing option.

“Really intriguing compare to some my other rums. The chocolate and coffee tons are more pronounce than vanilla. The flavor profile hangs for a long time. A slow sipping rum.”

“Nosing is very vanilla forward with orchard fruit, particularly pears. There is also some caramel sweetness. After some time the nose gets much more woody. Initial vanilla bomb with caramel and some chocolate. It gets very thin right after the first wave of flavour and then begins to develop some more interesting flavours of spice and roasted nuts. The thinness is a little off-putting especially considering the richness of everything else. Too bad. After sitting for a while, I will admit that the flavours seem to integrate a little better and the thin impression is lessened. The finish is decent, kind of short with a rather pleasing sweet chocolate and some light barrel notes. Where I live (Vancouver) the price is on the high side so the value isn’t there. Finally, the entry here for this rum claims to be pot still. I can’t see that as being the case.”
