Copper color. Interesting, musty, yeasty aromas and flavors of yeasty fruitcake, caramelized nuts, and green tobacco in a damp basement with a supple, bright, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long finish with nuances of black licorice and craisins in cream, oak, and pomegranate molasses and vinaigrette finish. An intriguing, funky, barrel-finished rum for adventurous cocktails.

Rum Aged 3 years or less

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.
