Gran Reserva Diez Aged Rum

Category: Aged Rum

Date Tasted:
Country: Puerto Rico
Alcohol: 40%
Golden amber color. Fruity aromas of caramelized banana, dark chocolate dipped dried mango, salted caramels, summer artichoke, and roasted almonds with a satiny, lively, fruity medium body and a peppery, complex, medium-long Madeira cake, apricots in syrup, lush cane fields, and mission fig finish. An exceptionally smooth rum that maintains balance and poise just the right amount of twang.

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.
