What are members thoughts on this service? I was a little surprised Zaya only received a 87.

I have generally agreed with them about 2/3 of the time. I think that some of their reviews are a little ridiculous, like when someone says they can taste "cigar box" in a rum, or 3 different types of bananas. But generally I agree with them.

As with all reviews they're just another guideline. I like to read at least 3 reviews from different people.

Cigar box is a silly term but I think it might mean cedar and tobacco?

I've always appreciated this site. Like everything, there are always areas of disagreement. I would and have recommended this site to lots of folks.
