Dark amber color. Aromas of butterscotch, chocolate-dipped banana, canelé, roasted mango, and copper pot with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a seamless, complex, long orange marmalade, cedar smoke, allspice, and pickled apricot finish. A slightly funky, copper-pot-kissed rum with sultry fruit and and outgoing personality.

Rum Aged more than 3 Years

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.
