Picked up a new bottle of Rum.. delicious

I was in Indianapolis and stopped by my favorite liquor store, Kahns.

They have liquor behind the counter to try. While I am really a bourbon man, I have been enjoying good quality rum's. They had one I had not seen.

Zaya Gran Reserva 12 year old imported from Trinidad.

This rum needs nothing, just place in a glass and enjoy as you would a fine cognac. It is truly spectacular. It deep golden appearance carries a rich body, exquisite nose and long soft finish. I highly recommend it.

Zaya is really nice rum. Another from Trinidad that you may enjoy is Angostura 1919. Great for drinking neat or with an ice cube or two.

How does it compare to Pusser's?

Its a completely different animal. Pussers has a sharp bite and hard nose to it. The Zaya is soft all the way around..and it is sweeter. You can taste the cane in it.

I like the Pyrat XO, but the Pyrat Pistol is just too flowery for me. If you like smooth, sweet rums, Ron Zacapa 23 may also be of interest. It's widely available and should run about $50 a liter.

As far as I am concerned nothing beats Pussers rum. The UK navy sailed with Pussers rum for 2 centuries, can't be bad if millions of sailor's drank it every day

Well my favorite is Brinley Gold Coffee Rum, but it's not available very many places. Some states you can order it from suppliers. Unfortunately I have to get it through my brother in Wisconsin. It's a very sweet rum, but fantastically smooth and buttery.
