Bright golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of buttered popcorn, candied banana, roasted peanuts, copper pot, barley tea, and spice cake with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, appealing, medium-long finish that shows nuances of sticky toffee pudding, roasted mango, tobacco, and gingersnap finish. Lots of fruity, chewy flavors develop on the palate; this is a delicious, complex sipping rum for all types of aged spirits lovers.

Rum Aged 3 years or less

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.
