I didn't realize Zaya G R was no longer being produced. I have 1.5 bottles left, and I will cherish them. sigh

Zaya is still being made -- it is just a different Zaya than the old (Guatemala) version, instead being produced in Trinidad.

Does it still taste the same?

It is different. It uses different stills, sugar, and aging conditions.

I haven't tasted the Guatemala version as it hasn't been widely available for quite some time, but most of the comparisons I've seen prefer the old version.

I have never tried the old one. Judging the new one purely on it's merits, I was not impressed. Thin and lacking any note but vanilla.

In a number of blind taste tests my friends (of varying levels of rum sophistication) have consistently chosen Captain Morgans Private Stock over "New" Zaya, and I daresay I agree with them.

While not in the sipping-rum category; Mount Gay Sugar Cane rum was one of the better cocktail rums.

For whatever reason - it has gone away.What happened?http://www.ministryofrum.com/forums/...s/confused.gif

I still have two bottles left. Not a sipping rum? Indeed it is.

I have found Plantation Grand Reserve (Barbados) to be a great replacement for MGSC rum.

I have been revisiting my bottle of Plantation Panama 2000 lately - wishing I had bought more than one...

Very nice sipper

Still have 2 1/2 bottles of the old Zaya G....I call it my fleur de rumba. Just sooo good. Share it with friends who appreciate it. Have a bottle and a bit of the old MG Xtra Old. Truly one of my favorites. A few years ago,(4) a store in my area had 4 cases of the Zaya Guatamala I bought 2, wish I'd bought them all. @ $25 a bottle a deal. At that time he had the Appleton Estates 21 year for 39.95 stupid me only bought 2 bottles butterfingers, if you know what I mean. Went back to get more and he had one bottle which he sold me for $50 Looking for a new fave but just haven't found it. Still enjoying sipping good tequila occasionally...wish I were retired.
