12 Year Old Rum

Category: Aged Rum

Date Tasted:
Country: Dominican Republic
Alcohol: 40%
Brilliant bronze color. Aromas and flavors of toasted fig bread, spiced chocolate pistachio toffee, tres leche cake, and creme brulee with a velvety, bright, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, engaging, long finish with notes of sarsaparilla with spumoni gelato, pink peppercorn, hint of bitter bark and roots, and honeyed espazote finish. An interesting, lightly herbal aged rum that will be fun in creative cocktails like an amaro daiquiri.

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.
