I understand from several sources that Zaya Rum will no longer be made from the stocks of Industrias Licorere de Guatemala. It's going to change, or perhaps be retired.

Welcome to the forums. Those before me have recommended some of the same choices I would have. Add Babancourt to the list and a Rhum Agriocle from Martinique or Guadaloupe, one you find in your price range.

Will Montecristo also have to find an alternate source?

In my limited, but enjoyable, experience, Zaya has proven to be my favorite rum for sipping. El Dorado 15 is a close second, and Pyrat XO and Cruzan Single Barrel make great summer mojitos. I'm trying to track down Ron Zacapa, and I'm sipping some Sailor Jerry (cherry overtones with a slight sting) which is not bad for the price. I got started on this journey when some friends returned from an island vacation with a bottle of Bermudez Anniversario, which I decided to have a few sips of one night...it was a revelation! I haven't found any Bermudez here in the US yet, but hope to find that and other great rums. Best of luck...

Bermudez rums will now available in the US through an importer in North Carolina. I believe the Matusalem Gran Reserva 15 is made in the Bermudez distillery in DR.

I assume Monte Cristo and Zaya will find new sources, but no hard info.

Have you solved the mystery of the Dominican origin of Matusalem? Do you believe that the other Matusalem offerings are made at the Bermudez distillery as well?

If info on Zaya becomes reality, let us know so I can pick up another bottle before it disappears.:eek:
