I remember my impression of Matusalem gran Reserva was that it was very mellow. The flavour almost needed to be coaxed out. In fact the only times I enjoy the Gran Reserva is when I feel really laid back and mellow myself. Its pretty much a mood rum for me.

I think that after the full flavour of Zacapa, you were not prepared for a totally different style. And I can see how it would seem 'thin' in comparison.
