Bright dark amber color. Sweet aromas of caramel sauce, vanilla soft serve, saffron gelato, and rose water with a creamy, crisp, fruity medium body and a medium-length rum soaked raisin and grape nuts cereal, chocolate fudge, honey covered cedar, and black tea finish. A luscious aged rum with body that can stand up to stirred 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.
