Dark amber color. Aromas of bananas in caramel, spice cake, and nut shells with a supple, crisp, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, breezy spiced nuts and toffee, vanilla cream wafer, and chocolate bon bon finish. A silky and mild aged rum with creamy character; try in winter holiday cocktails.

Rum Aged more than 3 Years

Añejo and Age-Dated Rums are aged Rums from different vintages or batches that are mixed together to insure a continuity of flavor in brands of Rum from year to year. Some aged Rums will give age statements stating the youngest Rum in the blend (e.g., 10-year-old Rum contains a blend of Rums that are at least 10 years old). A small number of French island Rums are Vintage Dated.
