Default Zaya Rum

I bought a bottle of Zaya rum today

what cigars do you think pair best with Zaya?

Right now I am thinking a Cabaiguan Guapo.

Thanks!

Zaya's pretty flavorful, I'd stay away from the mild smokes.

I had a glass of Zaya with a fellow member here and it was fantastic. I can see it pairing with anything.

The Vegas crew, livewire actually, introduced me to Zaya. It was fantastic and I usually don't like liquor straight or on the rocks.

Supposedly it used to be even better before they switched distilleries.

Better? Different? It's still some of the best. I love Zaya straight. I would stay away from the peppery sticks but it doesn't really matter.

I have never had Zaya before. Is it a spiced rum? Or on the rocks with a mixer kinda rum?


Thanks,

Straight up neat sipping rum. It is a spiced rum. I've had both bottles from Trinidad (New) and Guatemala (Old). They're both great, but the old stuff was just a little bit better. It definitely pairs well with cigars.

Zaya is probably the best rum Ive had thus far. Dont mix it, its excellent straight. It has a wonderful bouquet of vanilla.

Tim has a bottle stashed in our locker at the lounge, and I must say that I enjoy partaking in his purchase (I got him a bottle of Havana club as a payback).

The only problem I find is that the rum is so flavorful, that all I taste is the Zaya when I smoke. My last experience was with an inch of Zaya and a Mag 50. I couldnt enjoy the flavor of the Mag 50 because it was overpowered by the rum.

Hmmm.... I had some Zaya with a SCdlH El Principe on Saturday and all I tasted was the Zaya. Maybe I shouldn't pair it with cigars

Both are excellent. I actually prefer the Zacapa 23 to the Zaya.

FWIW - I've never had a problem drinking rum with cigars.

Default Re: Zaya Rum

The old Zaya (Guatemala) is MUCH better than the new (Trinidad) version. I've had then side by side, and the Guatemalan version is smoother and the flavor doesn't overpower with Vanilla like I felt the Trinidad version does. My wife was lucky enough to find me a bottle of the Guatemalan version last Friday, and they may be able to get their hands on more for me, too. I seriously hope so.

As for the cigars I've paired it with, it has gone well with everything I've smoked with it. Fuente to DPG to other island smokes. Just an all around outstanding sipping rum (or it used to be before the move, IMO).
