Brilliant amber color. Aromas and flavors of chocolate coffee bean and coconut chips, varnished wood, dried bananas and mangos, and hint gauze and iodine with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an effortless, layered, long spiced nut brittle, caramel creme Anglaise, minerals, and cigar tobacco finish. A very tasty, dryish Cuban style aged rum perfect for cigars or high end cocktails.

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.
