5 Year Old Rum

Light copper color. Candied, funky aromas and flavors of caramel, soft papaya, hearts of palm, and banana with an oily, soft, off-dry full body and a warming, interesting, long nut butter, toffee, and pineapple cake finish. A rich mouthfeel and desert-like flavors shine in this aged rum.

Dark Rums are traditionally full-bodied, rich, caramel-dominated Rums. The best are produced mostly from pot stills and frequently aged in oak casks for extended periods. The richest of these Rums are consumed straight up.
