You may also like Zacapa 23 and Angostura 1919, the latter of which has some of the same vanilla flavor and nose as the Zaya.

Pretty common and available. The Angostura is only 8 yrs old, so you may need to add some water.

Ok thanks, why would I need to add water? I'm new to rum and curious.

Adding water changes the balance of the bottled product, breaking up the alcohol molecules and letting more flavor and nose come through in some products or making it less offensive in others. It's typically done with whisky but can be done to similar effect in any sipping spirit.

Thanks for the reply! That may have helped the Pyrate Rum taste better.

Zaya is one of my favorite sippers. The other being Zacapa 23. Never had the 1919 before. I need to find a bottle.

Around 2008 Angostura took over Zaya production. If you can find it try and get a bottle of the original from Guatemala. Worlds apart. The original is far superior in my opinion. Original was made by the same folks that produce Zacapa.
